Nowadays consumers are armed with smart phones which are as strong, if not stronger than NASA's Curiosity rover, making it very easy for users to accomplish pretty much anything on-the-go, which they would normally need a stationary computer for.
India's Housing.com, is one of the many real estate portals around the globe which recognised the need of smart phone technology, and consequently developed apps which facilitate searching for property on-the-go.
With the rolling in of New Year, Housing.com has introduced a home search app for iPads , which the company claims to be revolutionary, and fun. Housing.com described the new app on its blog as "smart, easy, and a treat to look at." The company added: 'We wanted to give you a home search experience that wouldn’t just search, but find."
Here are some features:
Location Advantage: To highlight the property location on the map based interface
Visual Experience: Full screen photo viewing experience.
Enhanced Efficiency: Faster results and reduced number of steps in the search process
Emulating performance: No compromise on features of the website. Simply better.
The Housing.com smartphone app has been revamped as well. The interface has been given a new look to give users an enhanced experience. As good as browsing the Housing.com site – only more portable.
In order to improve speed and ease of usage, the Filters can now be accessed on the Results page. This reduces the steps in users' search processes and gives them instant results.
The details page has also undergone a major makeover. It is a one-stop destination for need-to-know information about the property of interest.
