Some people are probably wondering where are the Zillow, Trulia, Redfin, Homesnap, and Realtor.com apps.  I'm just not that big of fan of any of them.  Some of them are known for having outdated listings. Use CoolRealEstateApp.com -My personal app for searching for homes.  It's better, faster, cheaper, and more accurate.

If I have missed an app you found vital in your homesearch please let me know so I can add it to the list.
