RISMEDIA, April 6, 2010—Real estate website Zillow.com announced that its Zillow on iPad App is available on the App Store. The app presents users with homes for sale, homes for rent, Zestimate home values, photos, home details and historical data on 95 million U.S. homes on a stunning screen—all while on the go.
“We jumped at the chance to create the Zillow on iPad App because we saw this as a unique opportunity to create a brand new, photo-driven home shopping experience on the most incredible Apple device yet,” said Rich Barton, Zillow’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our app for iPad has the potential to radically change the way people search and comparison shop for real estate and we’re excited to be on the App Store for iPad from day one.”
With the Zillow on iPad App, home shoppers and real estate professionals can now:
-Quickly search and browse cities and neighborhoods on a large touch-screen map with information on all homes, including those for sale or for rent, using landscape or portrait mode. Alongside the map, users can flick through photos of a home, or multiple homes, all from one simple, interactive interface.
-Window-shop the neighborhood – In addition to map-based searching, Zillow built a brand new shopping interface, completely unique to the iPad, which starts with photos. View large images of multiple homes side-by-side; quickly flick through preview photos of one home versus another, or pick a home and browse large, nearly full screen images on the iPad’s high resolution display.
-Drag and drop homes into a personal favorites section for easy access. Favorite homes can be synced with Zillow.com and the Zillow iPhone App for later viewing.
Additionally, the Zillow on iPad App lets home shoppers set custom filters to refine home searches by price, size or type and share homes of interest via email or Facebook. When interested in a home, shoppers can also email the agent, owner or landlord right from the app.
The Zillow on iPad App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
