This new app is in addition to our “responsive” site, which offers customised viewing experiences for all desktop computers and mobile devices.
Android is the world's dominant mobile operating system and our new app targets anyone who has acquired an Android smartphone in the last few years, as well as the numerous Blackberry and Nokia customers that are migrating to Android.
“The Android market is expanding on a daily basis, meaning that developing and launching this app was a key focus,” says Grant Elliott, our Chief Technical Officer.
The Android app offers you all the features on our website including searching for sales and rentals; browsing the vast collection of listings via a simple and visually-engaging interface; subscribing to emails and SMS alerts; messaging; and adding favourite properties to a personal wish list.
Settings that are changed in the Android app will automatically reflect on your website settings, meaning that you can switch between the app on your device and the website on your computer, and your personalised settings will remain synchronised.
Our iPad app, which was launched last year, sat at the top position of the South African app store’s free general category within days. There were more than 22 000 downloads and upgrades from the initial app of that version within a week of its release and, with more than 76 000 active users, it remains one of the country’s top lifestyle apps.
