Zoom Into Your Home Search with ZipRealty’s iPhone App 3.0

We just released the newest version of ZipRealty's award-winning iPhone (and iPad) app. In version 3.0, we improved the layout, design and key functionality of the app, making it easier than ever for you to search, sort, and save homes for sale – either at home or on the go.

What's New in Version 3.0

We revamped our interactive map to improve your search experience: you're now able to see homes for sale at any zoom level. Whether you're looking for a home on a particular street or hunting in a few different neighborhoods, the app will give you real-time data of all MLS listings for sale in your search area. The app comes fully loaded with our new StreetSketch™ feature, as well as our award-winning augmented reality StreetScan™ feature.

Mark Silva, Zip's Director of Mobile Development, demos some of the newest features of the app in the video below:

We also improved your ability to sort your search results: now, you can sort by listing date, price, or square footage in both the map view and the list view, so you can quickly identify the homes you are most interested in. If you’re searching in map view, the filter settings will disappear to give you more room to move around the map. Want to access them again? Just do a long press on the screen to make them pop back up.

As Mark mentioned, the tool bar is now on every page, so no matter if you’re zoomed out in the map view or looking at a home detail page, you can easily access your saved notes, get in touch with your Realtor®, or save a listing to your “Saved Homes”. And all of this syncs up with our website and any searches you’ve done online to make your experience seamless from computer to phone to tablet.

Other Improvements and Features:

· New layout for home detail page

· “My Notes” auto opens for any home you have already made notes on

· New layout for “MyZip” with number of “Saved Searches”

· iPad Toolbar easier to press

· Now including Nashville metro

· Bug fixes and improvements

As always, let us know what you think. Our aim is to make your home search as streamlined and easy as possible, so give us feedback on what you love, what you don’t, and what features you’d like to see in the future.
