House hunting can be tedious, but the tools you use on your search don't have to be. The Homesnap app lets users look up information about homes and neighborhoods just by snapping photos of locations of interest. When it came to Android nearly a year ago, it arrived with an interface stuck somewhere between Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich. Now, with version 3.0, the app is ready for life on KitKat.

The pictures speak for themselves here. The app's core functionality is inherently visual, and now its UI better emphasizes this. That's not to say that the changes are entirely surface level. Version 3.0 also boasts faster maps and more listings. And if you're curious about that handy top-down explore view visible in the top-right screenshot above, don't worry, it's still present in the new version.

What's new:

Happy Spring house hunting! Homesnap has been completely redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up!

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    I'm glad everything is faster, considering the phones are faster.
