ATLANTA (PRWEB) October 1, 2008
"Using their iPhone or iPod touch, people searching for an apartment have immediate access to quality listing information, no matter where they are," said Arlene Mayfield, president, Apartment Guide. "We believe that these revolutionary devices, combined with the rich media of our apartment app, will drive valuable interactions between apartment shoppers and property managers."
Now users can search ApartmentGuide.com listings from their iPhone and iPod touch based on city and state, and zip code or use the location feature to pull listings from the surrounding area. Users can also save results to their favorites and continue the apartment search from where they last left off, scroll through photos, map specific locations and get driving directions, call or e-mail a listing agent for the property directly from the application, and sort based on criteria like pricing that helps zero-in on apartments best suited to a user's taste or preference.
"Providing relevant, localized information to consumers through these mediums as they search for an apartment demonstrates our commitment to helping renters find a place to live," said John DeLatte, vice president, ApartmentGuide.com. "Future updates of the application will include new home, property rentals and foreclosure data feeds. The plan is to evolve the application to pull content across our other real estate assets, NewHomeGuide.com and Rentals.com. We have a significant amount of data to leverage that will help deliver a seamless user experience and leads to our customers."
The Apartment Guide application is free to download from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at http://www.itunes.com/appstore/. Visitors to http://www.ApartmentGuide.com will also be directed to a link to quickly and easily initiate the download.
