Web companies have been in the mobile app-building spree for some time now and many have realized that the mobile platform supports their services better than computers. Zillow.com is a standing example of this kind of a mobile app that has outperformed its website. This real estate website gives details about homes and prices which people find even more convenient to access while on the go. The mobile app for Zillow has an integrated GPS which enables people to find out details about a particular plot or home they happen to see while they are passing by.
