Realtor.com® Enhances Rentals App to Offer Location-Based Listing Notifications and iOS 7 AirDrop Sharing

Updated app for iPhone, iPod touch and Android also enhances personalization by adding capability to seamlessly upload and share photos of properties

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, realtor.com®, the leader in online real estate, operated by Move, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOVE), announced an exciting new update to its free realtor.com® rentals app for iPhone, iPod touch and Android. With this enhanced version, users can receive notifications while within close proximity of a rental property they previously visited or marked as saved within the app. The app also offers photo upload and sharing features and has increased its listings by 22 percent since the app launched in May.

Additionally, the app for iPhone and iPod touch adds support for iOS 7, becoming one of the first rentals apps to allow users to share content using the new AirDrop capabilities. Users with iOS 7 can use AirDrop feature to efficiently share listings and listing photos with other iPhone or iPod touch users in the same Wi-Fi network.

"In the second quarter of 2013, realtor.com® listing detail page views from mobile devices grew about 60 percent year-over-year, and half of our listing detail page views overall occurred on a mobile device," said Scott Boecker, chief product officer at Move. "We understand the crucial role mobile devices play in searching for rental properties, and we continue to implement the latest technology in our app, including location-based listing notifications, so users have a multifaceted tool that simplifies the rental search process."

The app extends realtor.com®'s commitment to providing users a comprehensive mobile tool to efficiently search for nearby rental apartments, homes, condos and townhomes, while managing the search process from end to end. With the update, the app can intuitively identify when users are near previously viewed and saved listings and send notifications to users on their iPhone, iPod touch or Android while the app is open.

Renters can now use the app to upload photos and take notes while visiting properties and share their listings with friends and family through SMS, email or AirDrop. All photos and notes are saved and stored in the cloud, making it easy for users to access their photos and notes at any time. The rentals app also features 22 percent more listings since it launched earlier this year.

The realtor.com® rentals app arms renters with the information they find most valuable, including rich images of listings. Users can filter listings they have viewed directly on a map or in a list, view and filter properties they have contacted and receive notifications when a new rental property fitting their specifications becomes available on realtor.com®.

The realtor.com® rentals app delivers fresh, accurate and up-to-date listings as a result of realtor.com®'s unique, direct relationships with thousands of apartment communities and more than 800 multiple listing services (MLSs).
