This mobile version of the RPR® (REALTORS PROPERTY RESOURCE) is your all-in-one data source. With RPR Mobile at the ready, you can search over 160 million properties (both on and off market) to uncover mortgage, historical and distressed data, flood zones, school info and more.

2. RoomScan Pro

Almost as if by magic, this amazing app draws floor plans by itself. The only thing you need to do is touch each wall with your smartphone. Customize with colors for individual rooms, and by dragging in doors/windows, then add in your measurements. Abracadabra - a floor plan practically appears before your eyes out of thin air. If you'd like, export the finished floor plan as a PDF, complete with your additional comments. Want to see how it's done? Watch a demo at http://locometric.com/demo.

3. Deductr 2

This app was seemingly built with REALTORS® in mind. It makes keeping track of your eligible tax deductions and expenses a snap and may even help you avoid paying more taxes than you should (a common professional hazard). Chances are it will come in handy every day as you log receipts and track mileage, based on your phone's built-in GPS. On the Deductr website, you can create a comprehensive P&L report, mileage summary and more. When April 15 looms near, your tax preparer will undoubtedly love it, too.

4. Box

In your business, it's crucial to be able to share documents securely and quickly, even when you're on the go. That's what makes this app ideal. Box lets you view, download, edit and annotate files anywhere. Then securely send those files to colleagues or clients. Plus, Box lets you preview files for quick reference, without having to download them.. Box even lets you set permissions as "view" or "upload only," so you're always in control of the information flow. Generous remote file storage makes it all possible.
