The LenderMobile+ mortgage loan app for the iPad has a new feature, Social Invite, that will allow loan agents using the app to invite realtors and borrowers who also use the app to start a loan application in real-time. The feature will provide a mobile lead generation tool for loan agents and is one of several new features that LenderMobile, a mobile mortgage loan apps provider, is adding to its flagship app, LenderMobile+.
