NEW YORK, March 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wall Street Journal announced today that a "WSJ House of the Day" app for iPad is now available for free from the App Store.

  • Tour featured homes with vivid slideshows for a close and inside look at architecture, landscaping and design details;
  • Share the latest houses on Facebook and Twitter or email photos to friends;
  • Save images to the photos folder on the iPad or within the app.
