As an Android enthusiast and a proud apartment dweller, I can assure you that my mobile phone never left my side while I was pounding the pavement during my last apartment search. And, I’m not alone. In a year or two, mobile phones are predicated to overtake PCs for accessing information online, which will certainly have an even greater impact on the way people shop for apartments. Knowing that smartphone owners are brand loyalists (guilty!), Apartments.com launched an Android app to help provide renters—and smartphone lovers—with a variety of options to choose from during their apartment search.
A unique feature of the Apartments.com app is that it’s built according to Google’s guidelines, designed specifically for the Android phone to ensure users have the best experience. While many companies simply port their iPhone app design over to the Android platform, we’ve tailored the rental search experience for them so that it feels like home. With Android gaining momentum as one of the most preferred platforms across the country—representing 47% of the market share—Apartments.com is now broadening its reach to this growing segment of smartphone users looking for easy access to apartment information on the go.
The addition of the Android app to the Apartments.com suite of mobile products—including iPhone or iTouch app and a mobile website—puts apartment shoppers in control of their search. By providing them with even more choices to access apartment information, they can search at any time, from anywhere, on the mobile device they prefer.
