BHG Real Estate offers iPhone app

Users get home, neighborhood data when they snap photos

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC is offering an iPhone application that detects the user’s location when they snap photos on home tours and automatically provides them with more information about the home and its surrounding neighborhood.

The iPhone app, Home Selection Assistant, also allows users to put together photo albums for each room in homes they are interested in, creating searchable content that can be synced with iTunes for access on a home computer or shared on Facebook or via e-mail, the company said in a press release.
