I haven’t had a chance to check out many of these new mobile IDX solutions but I really like what Diverse Solutions has put together. Goomzee may a bit more feature rich, but the UI on Diverse’s solution is very well done, feels very native.

Diverse Solutions Launches New Mobile IDX Search
New Property Search Takes Advantage Of Latest In Mobile Innovations
IRVINE, CA. (July 8, 2011) – Diverse Solutions announced today the launch of their new IDX product for mobile devices, dsSearchAgent Mobile. This new offering brings the property search functionality of their desktop IDX products to a mobile interface. Designed with lead capture in mind, dsSearchAgent Mobile promises to be a powerful tool for agents and brokers looking to expand their IDX search to the growing number of mobile device users.
Now that mobile devices have become a standard part of today’s real estate transaction, the release of dsSearchAgent Mobile is a welcome sign for the real estate industry. Using dsSearchAgent Mobile, buyers can use their mobile device to search for homes in any area, schedule showings, and even register to save properties.
Taking full advantage of the latest mobile technologies, dsSearchAgent Mobile integrates many unique search features previously unseen in mobile IDX search products. Innovative applications of the touch screen interface include sliding input controls, full map searching, and interactive property markers. In addition, GPS and location services now standard in mobile devices are utilized in features that allow visitors see listings, open houses, price averages, and more within a specified radius of their current location.
Unique in the mobile IDX space, there is no app or other download required to use dsSearchAgent Mobile. Currently supporting iPhones, iPads, and devices running Android OS or Blackberry 6 OS, dsSearchAgent Mobile was built as a mobile-optimized site that runs in a phone’s built-in web browser.
dsSearchAgent Mobile integrates with existing websites or blogs through an added snippet of HTML code. After this initial setup, any visitors using a mobile device are automatically prompted to redirect to the mobile IDX search. Easy integration combined with customized branding makes dsSearchAgent Mobile an easy and effective way for agents and brokers to extend their web presence to mobile users while retaining their image.
Known in the industry for pushing real estate technology into new directions, Diverse Solutions aims to capture the overall experience of a desktop IDX platform inside of a mobile device with the release of dsSearchAgent Mobile. As part of the announcement, Justin LaJoie, CEO of Diverse Solutions, said, “with touch-screen mobile devices, technology has finally come to a place where we can provide a mobile search experience at a standard our clients have come to expect from us”. This announcement comes just a few months after the release of dsSearchAgent 3.1, the latest in a string of major updates to their flagship IDX product, dsSearchAgent Pro.
