Hunting for a new place to live in? Looking for a studio or apartment? Well, I am and when I got a mail from my editor to review the the MyApartmentMap iPhone app, I decided to put the app to test and share my experience with you guys.
I have been planning to move from my current studio to a nice and comfy 2 bedroom apartment for a while now and I am going to narrow down my options using only MyApartmentMap iPhone app and not the web version. For privacy reasons, I will not be using my real addresses nor will the screenshots carry details of the city and I will be using Pasadena, California instead.
As soon as you open the app, its down to business. No fancy gimmicks, no graphic reels, no nothing, you get a search box asking where you are looking for an apartment. You type in your city and hit search. Voila, you are presented with a neat list of apartment and studios to browse through.
The app comes with a filter option to narrow down your search by price, number of rooms etc., a map with locations of the different listings, some awesome data like the average rent for the city your searching for, average rents in the nearby locations and more.
Once you select a listing your presented with in-depth details of your selection with information from the owners, a map, property description, images, amenities available, floor plans and more.
From then on, you can contact the ones you need additional details and complete your hunt.
Positives of the app
- Simple and clear user interface
- Ease of use
- Does a good job of what it says. Searches apartments.
Listings of a few searches lead to web versions of their websites without mobile versions. This data needs to be mobile browser optimized.
