MLS-Touch vs. Homesnap Pro: A Comparative Look at Heartland MLS Mobile Apps

July 2, 2020 in Heartland MLS

Heartland MLS will be launching
the MLS-touch mobile app
at no additional cost to its subscribers on July
13. With the addition of this new app, HMLS will be discontinuing the Homespotter
app as a benefit on Sept. 1. This will leave two mobile apps for subscribers:
MLS-Touch and Homesnap. Although these two apps offer much of the same data, a
few differences exist between them.


  • Homesnap is a public portal, like Zillow and
  • Contains non-Realist public tax records.
  • Offers access to listings nationwide, but can only view
    MLS-only details for HMLS listings.
  • Offers ability to pay for Facebook advertising.


  • Can be treated as an extension of Matrix.
  • Offers access to Realist tax data.
  • Only contains listings from HMLS.
  • Facebook advertising included at no cost.
  • Same fields, terms and labels as in Matrix.
  • Uses same sign-on info as HMLS Dashboard.
  • Offers in-app market statistics.
  • No up selling; all features are included.

Both Homesnap and MLS-Touch, however, allow users to share
listings to social media, share a branded app with clients, message with
clients in-app and use map search and GPS search functionality.

To get started with their free MLS-Touch account, Heartland MLS subscribers can:
  • Go to either Apple Store or Google Play Store and search MLS Touch.
  • Once downloaded, choose Kansas/Missouri in the State field.
  • Select Heartland MLS.
  • Log in using your Matrix username and password.
