I have this feeling often regarding apps; but this app is an important tool for real estate professionals, many of whom use an iPad when showing clients information in person (the screen is bigger than your phone but not as clunky as opening and closing a laptop). I wish this company in particular would invest in an iPad interface that gives more than just an enlarged version of the phone app. The opportunity to create a phone app/desktop site hybrid exists and would be well-received by the real estate professionals community.
Please make it so the iPad version can be used in landscape mode!!!!!This is an incredibly important app for realtors such as myself, and really the only avenue for tracking listings. I have to say I have never worked with an app that holds so much potential but who’s creators/gatekeepers have so little care. This app is painful to use. It can’t even do something as simple as save search settings, or remember past address looked up. The MLS staff need to spend one month with a handful of realtors and work out all of the backwards, time wasting nonsense this app forces you through to see and handle listings. It would be great to see our dues put to work on the number 1 took in our tool box.
I used to literally use this app all the time, virtually everyday. Since Flexmls ‘syncing’ with our local board this app has been frustrating and actually a hinderance to my productivity. It prompts you to login every time you open the app only to pull in the website and tell you that you’re already logged in and to go to the member portal (which also is the website and defaults to the computer version, not mobile). After all that, you can’t move around.. if you want to go to a saved search or back out of wherever you went first.. it backs out to the login. Super frustrating!!!
Just like the site, I find the MLS App to be hard to use. My Hotsheet Filter, the best part of the system, doesn’t seem to be able to handle a search of too many areas at once. I’m reinstalling the App because it’s slow and, frankly, an embarrassment at showings when I’m trying to receive data quickly. I usually have to use other sites out in the field because it is not user friendly. Also, pictures are small, and less than ideal for presentation. I do like being able to set up very specific search parameters for clients though.
It’s taking forever for photos to load as well as for anything in flex MLS to load up while using this app. My iPhone 14 is completely updated, and I keep checking the App Store to make sure there aren’t any updates that need to be made with flex MLS’s app. I usually don’t have problems with the app, but it has been really hard to use it lately because it’s very slow, regardless of whether or not I’m hooked up to Wi-Fi or if I’m using my cell phone signal. Please fix this ASAP.
Technology in the form of software applications can be incredibly powerful and useful tools. Unfortunately, any app can be a huge waste of time when the learning curve exceeds its intended purpose. FlexMLS seems to have an endless number of quirky, glitchy behaviors that have plagued me over the course of the 10 months I have attempted to employ it to enhance my business. I wish it were more intuitive or that time would resolve the seemingly constant interruptions and challenges to my workflow. It has exhausted me. Customer service has offered palliative, but too often ineffective results to my challenges. Scrap it and cut your losses. Bandaids aren’t the solution.
The app is useful since it provides the same information as the desk top version. If, you don’t discover the app, you will think it is limited in applications but after using it constantly I have found all the information I need such as tax & HOA information. There is no difference in the use of the desk top vs. the app other than how you view and find information. Love it!
Worst App I’ve ever used since they started making apps. Impressively bad
I downloaded this app from the App Store for my IPad. The app only uses about 20% of my IPad screen. I have my IPad on a keyboard in landscape orientation. The app does not rotate. It’s about the size of my cell phone on the IPad. Somebody needs to hire a professional to scrap this app and start over. This must be some result from nepotism to get someone’s kid out of the basement during the day and do something. Nobody would hire someone this incompetent to design an app unless it was for family or under some sort of duress. Anyways. Just fire this provider and hire another company please!!!
This app on the iPhone is not very user friendly, it is cumbersome. The app on the I pad is worse. It looks like the same version and size that is on the iPhone, hence a total waste to have an iPad to show clients larger images of properties. I bought an iPad to give my clients a better experience when digitally looking for a home/property but this app doesn’t offer an iPad option.
App is ok, a little clunky in UI, but serviceable. However, it’s missing the ability to approve concierge searches (auto searches set up for agent preview). I asked about it and there were no plans to add this feature. Why? For producers managing a huge lead volume, it’s critical functionality and saves us from opening a laptop. Approving these is the first thing many agents do in the morning.
Seems its been a long time in request for this, but an IPad full screen option would be wonderful. I want to cut down on printing paper, so went an IPad direction. Wish I wouldn’t have to use Zillow when talking to customers and looking through listings with them. The cell phone size app on my iPad looks terrible
The reviews here are overwhelmingly negative, but I think the app is usable and quite powerful. Don't get me wrong, there's a learning curve, but I find the app to be pretty stable and useful so far. I do think it's a shame there isn't an iPad version. Have you tried using the website on an iPad? It's mostly possible, with extra patience, but having the app there would be so much better.
I gave it three stars review just few days ago because map option disappeared. I’m very pleased with respond and fixing it in short period of time. My favorite app is back in full power. This app should definitely have FIVE STARS REVIEWS!!!!
Take it from someone who has used CRMLS app, the dreaded i-Tech app and a slew of other wannabe apps. This app is a Realtor’s dream come true. Honestly I can’t believe why this is not getting 6 stars. It gives me every single thing I need to find homes faster and delight my clients. The photos are amazing and while the other apps lagggggg behind due to cumbersome coding. Flex Pro is whipping through searches faster than I can type. Awesome job developers. Bravo. You folks should be congratulated and rewarded for this. *Unbiased and unsolicited testimonial from a local Realtor
I was perfectly fine with the app until this most recent update. Now I can’t type in an address to search. When I type in an address, this listing will show, but when I actually click the address to view the listing, it just keeps saying “results error, there was an error retrieving this listing”. I literally cannot search listings by address at all! Super frustrated right now!
I use this app constantly and consistently. I find I am no longer able to search individual properties but now can only see Comparables? This is not an efficient way for me to work on my feet, while out showing homes. How can I turn this off, or can the app return to allowing the end user to decide how to search? Thanks
Probably my most disliked App for real estate. I find it almost embarrasing as a Realtor to use other Apps when with a client to find a listing they have interest in. My newest frustration is sharing a Listing. It wont load to send via Text and if sent by email to a contact it does not indicate if sent! So you have no clue if they got the link! Like I said frustrating and embarrasing!
Not sure if it’s a recent app update or not, but pictures take forever to load when viewing a listing & when you expand pictures to view larger. iOS 15.3.1 iPhone 12 mini. Had the problem last year and then it was fine until last week or the week before. 3/2/22.
Ugh. Hate it. Makes me glad I am quitting this business.
Want something as simple as info on an address? Sure. You can get that! Just spend five minutes typing in search criteria and hope that along the way you don’t hit something wrong. This app is great for the developers who work with it all day long and lousy for agents who are too busy to learn app languages and need info quick and easy.
It never pulls up active listings if I search for it through a street name. I end up having to reference zillow to get street numbers details. I search through the listing agent. it also doesn’t give me opportunity to search coming soon listings through a listing agent. I also don’t like that I can’t do change/update listings from the app, it only lets you search for homes.
Well it’s been a full 2 years now for me, and lots of people asking to be able to use the app in landscape mode on an iPad. The developers simply refuse. This is the only app I know of that you can’t rotate the screen. It’s useless on the iPad because I use a keypad and cannot use it in portrait mode. Listen to the people for crying out loud ! I know it’s useless to keep asking, they will never give us the app that we need, but I try nonetheless. Sigh.
Documents do not print correctly when using the app from an Apple mobile device. I normally have to go to the desktop website to get the documents to print correctly. Defeats the whole purpose of the app.
Will not even except my password. I have been using the desk top side of FLEX for many years. I link into it on my phone and it does not work great so I decided to download this app. Unbelievable that they cannot even create an app that will except my password which I have years and years. Not particularly motivated to use an app that cannot handle the most basic function required to use it.
I am having a major issue opening this on my phone. It says my pw wasn’t saved properly but won’t let me in to change it. The app is working fine on my Mac and IPad. I have tried to delete it to re-load but I can only remove from my screen not delete from library. Very frustrating!!
I don’t have any choice I have to use it as a licensed real estate agent. Ever since they changed vendors now it is full of so many bugs and issues I have to log out and reset the app all the time. Such a disappointment they need to make this work especially if we have to pay a monthly fee on this I would expect a decent working version.
Very badly designed. Not user friendly at all. If you have more then one MLS there is no way to log out of the app to log into mls in a different area, and they give no way to combine them on the app, their online support told me I needed to download a second app, but they don’t have a second app? So the customer support it just as useless as the app
The app is helpful when touring with clients for quick access to information but there NEEDS to be an iPad version...or the iPhone version needs to be able to orient to a landscape mode for use on the iPad.
I’d love this app … if it worked. Being able to use from my phone would be great , but this app constantly freezes and won’t open. I have to delete the app and reinstall it constantly, and always at the worst times.
Looking at the reviews from over a year ago, they still haven’t resolved the login issues. It won’t accept my login on the app. Desktop is fine but this app is useless. Don’t even install it is my advice. You’ll be deleting it soon after.
Please fix the search error that occurs. When searching the address typed in comes up in a list of others that when clicked DOES NOT take you to that listing but a list of other properties that may or may not include your searched address.
Wasn’t having any issues, but now it is saying there is a problem with authorization when I try to log in. I can log in to the website just fine, just not the app. Sure hope someone can fix this because it is very frustrating.
This app used to be solid, but something bad happened… now I can only see maybe 100 listings. I have reset the settings, logged out and then back in, and deleted and reinstalled the app and the issue persists… please fix this problem.
Since my MLS - the Greenwich MLS updated their platform this app has been impossible to use. It’s very difficult bc clients expect to ask questions and get answers on the go. The fact that Zillow out performs the MLS apps is sad. We should have something that works
I can’t use this app because my privacy is more important to me than your data unnecessary collection. Quit being greedy and just fix this so I can log in and use your app again When are you gonna fix it and respond to us?
I’m an agent paying monthly fees for this app and yet I can’t use it on my IPad in landscape mode. Honestly, apple should not allow these apps to be listed here for IPad If they can’t go landscape mode. Weird that you can only go landscape mode when viewing the pictures....???
I cannot use the app to text or email a listing to a client because it has the listing agent’s name and contact information. This wasn’t always like this. Please fix this because the app is easy to use and could be outstanding again.
