    Not usable on my asus700 with keyboard WILL NOT ROTATE will go with the full system.

    Very dangerous in that it does not show that the home is a short sale.

    Back to the drawing board.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. The Smarter Agent team is very responsive and capable. We will check on the ASUS issue, John. The short sale issue is more about compliance and property status types. I will ask Tim Campbell, product manager for Matrix, to comment later this am. Please keep those comments coming and we all want this to be better. It's NOT back to the drawing board, but rather make continuous improvement to an already solid product.

    Need to add listing agent/showing contact information!

    For me the most difficult aspect is the continuous logging on for agent info. Especially if I have a slow connection and a car full of hungry clients. The functions available to non subscription MRIS users is the same found on other apps, so for me the usefulness of this app would be the subscription info. How about two apps, one regular and the other a professional. Where you stay logged in on your device and you can access the info saved on your desk top version.

  5. Hi Sam,
    A new version of the iPhone app became available in the App Store yesterday that should resolve this issue. Please let me know if this resolves the problem you were encountering. If not, we need to know so that we can address the issue – we certainly don't want bugs like this to discourage agents from using the app!



  6. Hi Sam,
    In response to your other suggestions, the focus group feedback that inspired a dual-purpose app for both consumers and MRIS customers indicated that what the majority of agents wanted was a single app where they could see the same information that their clients were looking at. Then, if they needed to, they could quickly log in to view the agent-only information. That's why we have a single app for both consumers and MRIS customers.

    While the consumer-facing functionality is the same as Smarter Agent's other apps, the MRIS Homes app displays much more listing information for consumers, and we are working on adding more.

    The custom functionality that was designed just for MRIS are all of the "agent only", or Professional features – the ability to log in and view the agent only information, search off market properties, etc. We have even more agent only functionality coming to make the app even better! Please let me know if you would be interesting in beta testing future releases of the MRIS Homes app. I'd love to get your feedback. Thanks!

    I have been fumbling around with this app for quite some time and have had difficulty. Finally, after being embarrased yesterday when I couldn't find an address, I decided to sit down this morning and figure it out. I went to the tutorial video above, which did not explain anything that I didn't already know.

    I realize this morning that the problem I was having yesterday was that I was only entering the street address (without city and state) in the "Address" bar. (The system returned an error message that there was no such address.) I thought I was supposed to enter the city and state in the "City/State" bar–but then the system returned all of the listings in the city I was searching. Fortunately, I was at least able to determine that the listing the customer wanted to see was no longer active. This morning when I was fiddling around, I realized that I needed to enter either the city and state with the street address in the "address" bar; or I could also just enter the zip code after the street address. I am thankful that just entering the zip code works–a lot less typing with my big thumbs. So thank you!

    I agree with other comments above: the main reason for my using this app is to look up showing information while out with clients. Often, new customers will present me with a printout of a listing from zillow and ask to see the property–they already have info available to the public– all I need is to make sure the listing is still active and get the showing instructions. I just looked up a property address, and after signing in, doing an address search on the "all status" tab, clicking the "Professional Information" tab, scrolling down, no showing information was there. I clicked on the "Realtor Quick View" tab, showing instructions weren't there; scrolled down to the "Realtor Detail View" tab); and finally found showing instructions. Now that I have figured it out, I can remember it—but there are too many steps to get to the info most often needed. (cont'd below)

  9. Annette says:

    I'm the first to admit, I am not technologically adept, but I think the system could be made a little easier to use by defaulting immediately to professional information that includes showing instructions. Perhaps there is another tutorial video somewhere else that I didn't see–if not, I think availability of additional training for those of us who "don't get it" would be helpful.

    I am unable to load the app on my blackberry curve with os 7. it says the link is unavailable. Have tried several times.
