Saturdays Are Mobile
In Flexmls Web (our desktop and tablet system), the overall traffic pattern peaks during the week with each weekend showing slightly lower traffic. In contrast, one of the not surprising but nonetheless interesting patterns we’re seeing in the traffic numbers for our new Flexmls for iPhone app is that the peak traffic day is Saturday, when agents are out showing homes and meeting with customers. I’m guessing this pattern will continue even more strongly when we roll out the customer portal version of the app later this year. Overall, the increased traffic on mobile on the weekends shows why designing and developing mobile-specific applications is fundamental to MLS software today.
