New iPad application offers an intuitive display to renters searching for apartmentsThe ForRent.com iPad application was intuitively designed to cater to the tech-savvy apartment shopper. The app incorporates popular iPad and iPhone features such as the ability to swipe through and enlarge property photos in a photo gallery (see photo). The application also adjusts the orientation-landscape or portrait- in which it can be viewed, which is something no other apartment listing website’s iPad application can do. With a map that is fully integrated into the search page, you can change your apartment search location by simply moving the map.
“We wanted to create a unique experience for our end users. By incorporating features that mimic tasks familiar to renters during the apartment searching process, the ForRent.com iPad application offers meaningful touches of realism,” noted Brock MacLean, senior vice president of national sales and development, For Rent Media Solutions. The “meaningful touches of realism” that MacLean is referring to include the map feature as well as the use of a notepad to review the results when a prospective renter accesses the application. When using the notepad feature, once the renter has reviewed all the properties that have appeared on that page, they can “turn the page” and be presented with more listings. The ForRent.com iPad application is also the only iPad application in the multi-housing industry to incorporate full screen videos. Imagine viewing a high quality apartment community video on your iPad!The ForRent.com iPad application is the latest product in the mobile suite offered by ForRent.com. In addition to the iPad, the business offers a mobile site with social sharing capabilities, an iPhone application complete with an augmented reality feature, an Android application, a BlackBerry application and a text messaging product. All of these products were designed to accommodate the apartment seeker on the go.
