Zillow.com Launches Android App
It’s springtime which means the home buying season is starting to kick off. Coincidentally or not, Zillow.com has just released their Android application into the market. If you’re not familiar with them, Zillow is an online source for homeowners, buyers, sellers, and everyone else to find and share relevant information as it pertains to real estate. As of right now, they have information on over 90 million homes across the US.
Their new Android application gives users all of the great features they’ve come to expect, but with some great mobile additions. For instance, GPS can pinpoint a user’s location and dynamically provide updates to the handset as they walk or drive through a neighborhood.
