The LTV Group, parent company of HousingWire and its sister publication, REO Insider, today launched digital applications for its two publications’ websites. The apps, available for download from the Apple (AAPL) iTunes store, are the first available products from publications in their respective market segments. Both apps are compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and are free to download. The HousingWire app features the latest breaking news from the HW staff, news from around the Web, along with selections from the latest edition of HousingWire magazine. The REO Insider app also features breaking news from the publication's staff, along with the latest posts on the REO Insider blog, Twitter feed and magazine selections. The apps come just weeks after The LTV Group released an app for REO Expo, an upcoming trade show for real estate professionals presented by the Open Door Institute, scheduled June 6-9 in Dallas. Open Door Institute is a collaborative effort between The LTV Group, Real Estate Educate and Default School. In the near future, The LTV Group will launch apps for the publications on the Android Market for smart phones that run Google’s (GOOG) Android operating system. In addition, in the coming weeks, both websites will have smart phone-friendly capabilities. Write to Austin Kilgore. The author holds no relevant investments.
