ForRent.com®, a leading online apartment search destination, inspires renters to discover their next apartment, condo, loft or townhouse through innovative search filters that allow for quick and easy narrowing down of choices. The most recently released two new apps. Sift Rentals™ for iOS allows prospective renters to take advantage of the “swipe left for no, swipe right for yes” design, and ApartmentView™ for Android makes for quicker, more enjoyable searching.
At a time when consumers are overwhelmed with one new app after another, Sift Rentals, available in the Apple App Store, is the easiest way to cut through the “clutter,” simply ignoring apartments and homes not of interest and quickly focusing on the ones that are. This makes for a shorter apartment search and a more gratifying experience. Users can explore search results through photos, videos, motion-controlled Google Street View, distance to points of interest, detailed listing information and more. A highly visual app, Sift Rentals includes all ForRent.com inventory as well as Homes.com® rentals. Users can swipe left for “no,” hiding the listings in which they are not interested, or swipe right for “yes,” saving potential rentals of interest for later viewing, leaving users with a feeling of instant gratification. Additionally, recent searches are automatically saved to make coming. back to listings of interest hassle-free. If a mistake is made, users can simply shake their iPhones to undo.
The ApartmentView app, available on Google Play, is a cutting-edge, augmented reality app, currently available for Android and coming soon to iOS. Users simply point their phone’s camera at nearby apartments to explore photos, floor plans, prices, amenities and more. The prospective renter can then call or email property management directly from the app if interested. There is also a mini-map feature that works with the slide of a finger in order to increase the search distance.
“ForRent.com is committed to providing users with the most engaging and rewarding apartment search experience out there,” says Terry Slattery, president of For Rent Media Solutions™. “The newest apps are truly cutting-edge and innovative products of teamwork and the ability to gauge the future landscape of the apartment renting industry. As one of the first to offer such original apartment hunting experiences, ForRent.com is excited to see how these two new apps will assist renters in their apartment shopping journey.”
