    …if only the freakin’ iPhone was e-Key capable, I could tell you what I was getting you for Christmas. Sorry, no iPhone for you, honey.

    Blame Apple & GE for not being able to get into homes in Austin, not me!

    I am not sure why you would need the contact information for the listing agent since there is a big sign in the front yard with the agents number. Also, if the search capabilities are anything like the website, then the mobile application will end up being practically useless. That is why everyone is slowly moving away from realtor.com and going to other sites like Trulia.

    IMO, if they were truly “committed to enhancing the experience consumers have” they’d overhaul the entire site and make it useful.

    But what if they’re simply “committed to enhancing the public image of the experience consumers think they’ll get”?
