GreatSchools, a national nonprofit that maintains profiles of public and private schools, has launched a mobile app that can be downloaded to Apple's iPhone, iPad and iTouch devices and allows users to view and share school details, including ratings and reviews. "The app is particularly relevant to residential real estate agents," GreatSchools said in a press statement, as schools can influence prospective homebuyers' purchase decisions. The app provides information for about 125,000 public and private schools in the U.S. The app was unveiled during the Real Estate Connect conference last week in San Francisco.
