With the clear understanding that mobile technology is where the future of eCommerce lies, Property24 has proven its dedication to innovation and to remaining a leader in the industry through the development of breakthrough mobile property search apps for all leading devices.
After the iPhone and iPad App raced to the top of the Lifestyle Category in the iTunes Store earlier this year, and was recognised at the MTN Business App of the Year Awards 2014, Property24 wasted no time in refocusing attention on new opportunities. This next opportunity came when Microsoft took note of the benefits the Property24 mobile app offered on-the-go property buyers, and approached Property24 to develop an app tailored for Windows devices.
Clifford de Wit, Developer Experience Lead at Microsoft South Africa says, “Microsoft South Africa is proud to be working with Property24, one of the largest property search portals in South Africa. We strive to ensure that our customers have locally relevant apps that help them in their everyday lives, and by bringing the Property24 apps to the Windows platform, we will be doing just that.”
The new Property24 Windows App is the first of its kind for Windows devices and invites Windows device users to join the exciting world of property searching from anywhere, making use of any spare moment. JP Farinha, CEO of Property24 explains, “Having seen the success of our mobile apps across many devices, bringing Property24.com’s user-friendly and enjoyable property search experience to Windows devices was the logical next step. We pride ourselves on being creative thinkers and leading the industry forward, and partnering with Microsoft was the perfect opportunity to put this to the test and create something ground breaking for Windows devices.”
With access to listings from South Africa’s leading estate agents, high-res photo galleries and an interactive map search, finding the perfect home has never been more enjoyable. The new Property24 Windows App also offers easy filtering to ensure property buyers can quickly access properties that meet their requirements, and with the option to contact the relevant estate agents directly from the app, there is never the need to worry about missing out on the perfect home.
The Property24 Team also understands that a property search is something to be shared, and this is why the Property24 Windows App allows buyers to save and share favourites.
