The California Association of Realtors has developed an iPhone application that’s now available for free download to members at the Apple iTunes store.

CAR — which is also offering versions of the application for BlackBerry and other Web-enabled smart phones — claims to be the first realtor association in the country to offer an iPhone app.

But the group says it will allow the scalable, data-driven application to be licensed and branded by other local and state real estate associations.
