Now that we've launched our branded REW IDX app and our clients have taken notice, we've started to receive questions about the two different versions of the app.

One of the biggest questions is whether a real estate agent needs an iOS app, an Android app, or both.

In this post, we're going break it down and answer that question.

When one app is actually two

First, let's explain why we have two separate apps.

When an app is created for both iOS and Android, the app is created twice—one for iOS devices like iPhones and iPads, and then again for Android devices like Galaxy phones and generic tablets.

IDX apps are a powerful tool for your business. They can help engage potential and existing clients, improve brand loyalty, and get people addicted to your services. But to get the most benefit, you need to know when to promote your app and how to use it within your existing workflow. Timing is everything.

Typical journey of buyers & sellers

First, let's talk real quick about the basic digital journey that almost every buyer and seller takes:

1. Search online

When someone decides to buy or sell a house, they tend to start in one of two places: referrals or web searches. In either scenario, the person is trying to find more information about the real estate process.

One of the coolest things we've ever made at Real Estate Webmasters is the REW Leads app. Full disclosure, I'm the lead developer of REW Leads for iOS, but that just means I know how powerful it really is in helping real estate teams conquer their lead follow up.

REW Leads was built with one goal: to make lead follow up faster and easier. That's it. That's all it's meant to do. But that simple goal is a ridiculously huge advantage for real estate teams that use the app properly. It means your team is connecting with people before your competition and staying in touch with significantly less effort. That's a beautiful thing.

If that alone is convincing enough, let's talk about 5 more reasons your team should be using the REW Leads app:

real estate technology

Technology is constantly evolving, and real estate technology is no exception. As an industry, we're always improving, reinventing and re-considering the systems that help real estate agents and their businesses thrive.

At a recent Clareity conference in Scottsdale, AZ, we talked about a number of issues impacting the real estate market, as well as future changes we foresee happening within the industry sooner than later.

This blog will tell you a bit about 3 of the future tech topics on our radar:

1. MLS Data Will Become Even Better

Many real estate tech enthusiasts are familiar with RETS, which attempts to standardize the way in which real estate data is shared. But an organization called "Real Estate Standards Organization" (RESO) is

REW Leads has been on the market for just over a week, and hundreds of agents are already using the app to make real estate lead follow up easier than ever.

We've released another new update to rewLeads Beta, our new lead management app, to our beta testers. Our main goal for this release was to make one of our favorite features even easier to use: rewLeads Auto-Routing.

To get started, navigate to Settings -> Lead Routing and ensure that rewLeads Auto-Routing is selected. Then, tap Rules to start creating your custom routing rules.

Tap the + button to create a new Rule, or tap an existing Rule on the list to edit it. This will bring up a
