Zillow is mostly known for its real estate website that gives users estimates of how much houses are worth, and its app makes a few nice tweaks to this formula. It still gives aerial and street maps of neighborhoods with corresponding Zestimates (estimates of what each house is worth), but the app works with GPS to find your location and offers voice search, so you can get an idea of prices by just walking or driving through a neighborhood.
The photos are clear and high resolution, the interface is easy to use and allows you to search homes for sale, for rent, recently sold or all three. We used the app to see what our home and our neighbors' homes were worth and to see what sold in the past six months. (There's even a Zillow feature called "Make Me Move" where home buyers list a price that would make them willing to sell their home.)
You can still type in addresses to check out what specific houses are worth and email promising information about homes to friends. This mobile app is an easy way to get a quick real estate tour of any neighborhood without ever having to talk to an agent.
