  • Simplistic take on creating a mobile app.Add your contact info and upload your photo. It's the 1st thing your clients see when they open the app. You customize AgentNTouch™ with things like:Map your office location;Connect to your web site and IDX listings;  Map your listings or open houses; Include links to neighborhood sites your clients might be interested in.Fairly generic real estate content added daily. No local appeal or content.
  • Aimed primarily at small and medium-sized businesses without an in-house development staff, Sweb Apps is a new startup that lets you build a simple iPhone application using a series of web forms. The upside is you don’t need any specific technical knowledge to build up an app quickly (the company touts “in as little as 5 minutes!”), but the downside is the app interface and functionality are relatively basic. Still, for companies, individuals, or artists looking to put out an iPhone app quickly and for relatively little cost as compared to hiring a developer, Sweb Apps is worth checking out.
