App crashes
App crashes everytime I hit criteria, that just started a few days ago…. Not sure why it’s not working suddenly.

Latest update faulty
Like others have said…you can no longer change criteria without the whole app shutting down. Worthless unless you want to see ALL properties in all categories.

Developer needs to stop blaming
Here’s what I’m seeing: People are explaining what they liked, and what they dont like.. the reviews aren’t great, we can all agree on that. The problem is exaccerbated when the developer steps in and says “Sorry that YOU are having issues..” which definitely isnt acknowledging their own role in either CREATING, or REMEDIATING the issues with their product. Very immature and myopic.

Great app! Up to date and syncs directly with the MLS system
I buy and sell alot of homes and this is hands down my app of choice. It is completely up-to-date and syncs directly with the MLS system so as soon as listings hit the market, it'll send you the listings instantly if you set up a property tracker search. It definitely beats out Redfin and Zillow which tend to have lots of lag time between when listings come in the market and when they actually hit those sites. Zillow has a lot of manually updated features so if someone doesn't go in and change a home to pending or sold it would still show up as active. The John L. Scott app has many great features including maps, school data, street view, etc.

Fantastic real estate app!
The users that have complained in their reviews need to get a new phone or learn how to use the one they have. You CAN share listings via email and it doesn't crash at all. If you know how to close apps that are running in the background more often and get in the habit of resetting your phone then ALL of your apps will run more smoothly. Also, you can setup a "property tracker" account easily and it will save your searches and even email you when new properties go on market that meet your criteria. This app is simple and efficient, yet allows you to search for new home listings in very specific fashion. Great app!

I love the John L. Scott Home Search app!
The John L. Scott app has made my home search experience a breeze! I was able to browse the homes I’m interested in using the criteria filters - bed/bath count, price range, locations, schools, and more! I was even able to receive instant notifications for when properties matching my search criteria hit the market! Then, when I was ready to move our housing goals forward, I was able to contact my local John L. Scott real estate specialist directly! Thank you John L. Scott for making my home search easy and enjoyable!

*Edit 6/18* New updates makes app unusable
*Edit: missing info is back, app is back to being a great tool again thanks! Five stars* App used to work great, very quick and the most up to date versus the competitors. However the newest update has removed price history, school district info, listing date, and other key items that now drive me to use competitor apps for the same, public info. I hope this was a mistake, otherwise shame! There is no reason to hide public info like this; you will lose users.

App broke as of 2 days ago
Not sure what happened but starting 2 days ago I’ve had to turn off all notifications for my saved search to stop the constant receipt of emails of properties that don’t even match my criteria. And by constant I mean I was getting notified of emails from my saved searches every 5 minuets for a solid 2 hours before I finally turned off notifications. I’ve also tried submitting feedback in the app but the screen doesn’t load properly. And when I load a saved search in the app I can’t change the criteria to expand my search anymore. Every time I close the criteria window it reverts back to the original settings. It is very frustrating.

Old app was much better
I just loaded this app as the old one is no longer working. It was a good app. This one is hard to use and extremely klunky. I plan to delete it as it’s virtually unusable. I’ve seen the developer’s response and looked at the app on my iPhone. It’s about average with other RE apps on an iPhone, so I adjusted the rating from 1 to 3. As the response to MANY raters is the app is made to work with the iPhone and you should just use the website for iPads/iPods, the compatibility section should not include them and list solely iPhones.

One of the faster real estate apps out there. The interface is great and quick. Loads maps smoothly and scrolling+loading is lightning quick, especially on wifi. Much easier browsing experience over a few of the other well-known real estate apps.

Go back to the original!
You would think that a company would take the suggestions that they are receiving from their users and make changes. Literally something as simple as going back to the previous version would make all the difference. I’m using an iPhone and do not see in anyway that this app is “optimized” for my phone. You have 71 reviews and well over half are rating this app one star. Without even having to check I’m sure that most of those one star reviews showed up after the latest update.

Love the new version
As first adopter of JLS home search I found the new version to be more user friendly and intuitive. The list feature, criteria buttons, ability to share on social media and map over view have been a big improvement. I love this new version—your clients will too!

Not the place to buy from. Or to sell from
I've been trying to get a hold of someone to help me buy my first house and john l Scott never got back to me. I have left 4 messages the first time I seen a house I liked. And then it was sold. The second time around I left 2 messages and nothing back. So I'm going with a different company. The only time they get back to you is if the price tag is large. With my husband email I sent a message on a high priced home and got a message quick. I hope that no one else has to deal with that.

Restore to the previous version!
It’s clear from the recent reviews that the latest version is trash. I am sure the you are working hard to fix the many issues raised by the reviews, but why not make the previous version available for all your loyal users in the meantime? The latest version is simply unusable. I hope you are spending time to improve on the previous version, which was a good app to start with, and not wasting your time on making this pig (the latest version) fly.

Two annoying items
This has been my go to app for a number of years. It is a good app except for two things. The first is the app doesn’t work when the iPad is on its side. The second is there is no need to have the property count box. It block the lower part of the screen an shows up whenever the map is moved. Five stars except for those two items.

I have an Idea
How about letting users using lesser versions of the IOS actually use the app....or for that matter find the app in the app store🤷🏻‍♂️ 0 stars.... updating your users out of the app is not a way to increase your 1 star rating. And....👇 The information is always nil. Never showing rents or noi for multifamily or commercial. This app is the epitome of why the idea of redfin exists....unfortunately(and fortunately) redfin does not exist in a few MLS’s and that is why you haven’t been crushed.. pS I hate redfin and what they stand for, do the math jLS

App show every thing active
We have been searching for a home for almost a year and thought this would be a great tool but to our disappointment it's does not work proper. It shows all homes as active even those that are not. Our John l Scott realtors work proper but not ours. I have set the search menu to show active but still all say active when we know they are pending. I have contacted support but they do nothing. So I deleted the app. It's to bad cause this app would have been a great tool for us.

So bad my last review was deleted 😉
Used to be our favorite app! JLS has been my go to for years, starting with their desktop version which I found was easy to navigate and super user friendly, to when they first rolled out their phone/tablet apps up until recently! Such a HUGE disappointment! The developers really need to go back to the old interface! As many have said, don’t fix what ain’t broken! I understand this is in the beta phase...hope they phase it out!

Inferior and Frustrating
The old app was my go to for many years, and I always recommended it to everyone, as it was far superior to all other RE apps, hands down. What were they thinking with this inferior, impossible to use, and ultimately frustrating update? I can no longer use it on my iPad and the iPhone version is seriously downgraded. Why did they ruin such a great app? All I can think of is this new one is less expensive. It certainly looks cheap.

Well done app!
I'm really enjoying this app so far. No crashes and the interactive map is a great feature. It's just missing one thing (unless it's there and I'm not seeing it): the ability to save properties to my "Favorites" list. I'd love to see that added when you update. Thanks!

Fix the Crashes!
This would be a great app, but it crashes every time I try to view photos. Being able to find homes on the map is great. I'm going to keep the app and hope the crashes gets corrected; otherwise, it's getting deleted.

Cool and Immediate Text SMS
What I love is instantly receiving updates on the homes in my neighborhood that go on the market or sell. Allows me to be in the know without having to go and search for it. Great user interface.

Seems every update they find ways to make it less user friendly. Used to be my go to site back when they had different map type options so you could view the property. Now I have a big banner over my screen telling me how many properties it’s currently showing making it extremely annoying to see where the properties actually are.

Best Real Estate App!!
The JLS app is hands down the best app. It’s easy to use, has great graphics and features and updates new listings faster than Redfin and Zillow. Super impressed with it and highly recommend!!

Not as user friendly
My husband and I use to spend a lot of time perusing the JLS app. Not anymore. We miss seeing the pictures of the houses on the left of the screen. It was a quick way of eliminating the houses we weren’t interested in. I also like “landscape” viewing and that’s not possible anymore. iPad and iPhone show up differently. Searching for other apps that we can use.

Please bring back the iPad app
I really liked the ipad app but now all you offer is a phone app that doubles in size, this is horrible I don’t even use it anymore and I am looking for a different app from another realtor that has the features of your old app. I updated it a few minutes ago hoping the old app would be back but now it starts to open then crashes.

Bad app, missing features in New version
In responses to previous bad reviews, the defhrloed says they are constantly reheating updates. It's been 2 months since the last one. There is no way to access a mortgage calculator for the property you are viewing. That's pretty basic.

Bad app
It frequently doesn’t work and gives several different error messages. And no, it’s NOT my phone. I’ve had the app for about 10 +- years and it doesn’t seem to ever improve. Not sure why after all this time they can’t get it right. I don’t recommend it. And I’m moving on to something different.

Doesn’t work with iPad Air
I use the app a lot and it has been fairly issue free over the last few years. The newest version of the app doesn’t work with anything less than iOS 13. The iPad Air’s latest os is 12.4. As a result the app will not function on some iPads. Please fix if possible.

This used to be the best real estate app out there for many years! Sometime near the end of last year it was updated and went in the toilet. I would prefer to use Zillow now and it’s bad. Constant stalling and bad format. Needs to go back to what it was. Would give it zero stars if I could.
