DC Home and Condo Prices: The iPhone App

I'm pleased to announce that this blog is now an iPhone app! For those of you who don't have an iPhone, either buy one - this blog more than justifies the price! - or keep on walking. The app provides access to my blog postings and to tweets I send using my Twitter account, dchousingprices.

The app, "DC Prices", can be downloaded from the App store on your iPhone or from iTunes [link to app on iTunes]. And it's free!

For those who may want to create their own iPhone app, you may be interested to know I used a local company to create mine. Appmakr, officed in SE DC, has implemented a transformative process for app development that significantly lowers the barrier to entry into the iPhone app market. They've lowered the cost to create an app, taking it from the thousands of dollars to the hundreds of dollars [within certain parameters, of course]. Unfortunately, as I've recently discovered, all their good work in making it easier for folks to build iPhone apps can easily be throttled by the vagaries of Apple's gatekeepers to the iPhone App Store.

Below are images of the splash screen and the blog feed taken from my iPhone.

Just wanted to say thanks for the continued effort. I've been following your blog for about two years now - there is no better place to find info on the RE market anywhere.

Thanks!
