ForRent.com®, one of the nation’s leading apartment search resources, has announced the release of its Apartment Search mobile app, available to consumers nationwide on iOS and Android devices. The app aims to enhance the mobile user experience for apartment shoppers and provides a powerful mobile marketing platform for property managers and owners.
This state-of-the-art app provides users with a variety of features that will be of benefit while searching for a new home.

In the advanced search, renters are able to search for ideal number of beds, baths, what prices are actually affordable, and desired amenities.
The app also allows users to save locations and presents them with a first-of-its-kind commute time calculator, a tool to immediately determine the current travel time to and from those places. Additionally, the unique pet-friendly filter makes it easy for prospective renters to discover the best fit for them without having to exclude pets in their decision making.

Reviewers have touted the high-impact visuals, location-based search and community videos among their favorite features. App user Lani High stated, “This app is AMAZING! Price, description, a map...this is going to be such a help as I get closer to my move date.”
