Trulia (NYSE: TRLA), a leading online marketplace for home buyers, sellers, renters, and real estate professionals, announced today that it will launch a new mobile real estate app for Android Wear once it’s available in the coming weeks. Earlier today, Trulia’s app was highlighted at Google I/O 2014, the annual developer conference featuring highly technical, in-depth sessions, and showcasing the latest from Google’s product teams and partners.
“Trulia has been laser-focused on delivering the real estate industry’s simplest, most helpful mobile products. With more than 19.0 million monthly unique mobile visitors on Trulia already as of March 31, 2014, the number of people who search for homes on their mobile devices will only continue to grow,” says Kira Wampler, Trulia’s Chief Marketing Officer who oversees both consumer product development and consumer marketing at the company. “At Trulia, we are defining the future of home search by leveraging the latest technologies to deliver a simpler and more enjoyable experience for home seekers. As wearable tech becomes more prevalent, we believe that these devices will become key house hunting tools given how important location and context is in the search for a home.”
Key Details of Trulia’s Android Wear App:
- With a direct connection to Trulia’s app for Android, Nearby Home Alerts are fed directly to the wearable display – giving home seekers the first look at new homes that come on the market near them.
- From their wrist, users can swipe through photos and key home details about a property.
- With one touch, they can save the property for later access from their desktop, tablet or smartphone, or contact an agent to schedule a viewing.
- The app will be available for free on Google Play in the coming weeks.
Earlier this year, Trulia released two major upgrades to Trulia’s top-rated real estate app for the iPhone and Android phones earlier this year. In February, Trulia redesigned its app to make it as immersive and visual as being at an open house, including full-bleed property images, easy-to-navigate photo galleries, and beautiful heat maps to visualize important neighborhood details such as crime, schools, and home prices. In May, Trulia launched Nearby Home Alerts, a one-of-a-kind feature that instantly alerts buyers and renters to new homes for sale. Every time a user is within a certain radius of a new home that’s been listed in the last 24 hours, this fully customizable push alert sends them all the details.
This announcement also follows the release of Trulia’s real estate app for Amazon Fire phone last week and the development of a Trulia app for Google Glass in 2013. With Trulia’s Fire app, home seekers can instantly search for homes, and get the full picture of a home and neighborhood with hi-res property photo galleries and detailed heatmaps with essential info like crime and school ratings.

Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
