A big WTG to Rapattoni – the first MLS system provider to offer agents a search tool for the iphone.  If only GE Supra would progress beyond the 90s and and dump thier antiquated IR lock box technology – agents would be able to move away from the treo toward real productivity solutions like the iphone and the blackberry.

What follows is the press release from Rapattoni

Simi Valley, Calif., November 4, 2008 Rapattoni Corporation announced today that the Rapattoni MLS PDA interface has been optimized for the Apple iPhone. Elegant changes to the user interface now put the power of Rapattoni MLS at iPhone users’ fingertips. Tap through listing searches, pictures, details, history, and contacts using the iPhone’s revolutionary Safari web browser. Tapping a listing’s address will plot the listing in Google Maps where driving directions are just a tap away.

Nick Rapattoni, president of Rapattoni Corporation, stated, “The iPhone is a powerful and stylish business tool. We are pleased to provide our users with an elegant mobile MLS experience on this innovative and popular platform.”

The iPhone software roll out scheduled for November 12, 2008 is the result of a continuing research and development program at Rapattoni to assure that its customers are able to take advantage of new technologies.

Rapattoni will be showing its real estate industry software and service products at the annual National Association of REALTORS® Conference and Expo in Orlando, Florida, November 6 through 10.
