Rent.com has gathered a following since eBay first launched it with millions of rentals listed. Liz let us know they recently released a BlackBerry app which allows you to search all of the Rent.com rental listings from your device.
The Rent.com app allows you to:
- View property details including photos, floor plans, maps & more
- Call properties with the touch of a button or send a personalized email
- Stay organized with personal notes & photos of your favorite properties
- Claim your $100 Visa reward card with our simple lease report form
I think it is really a good fit for Rent.com to release mobile apps since looking for listings on the go is a real pain. I have done the apartment hunt a few times already to know that the more information you can get from the palm of your hand the better off you are. I remember back in 2002 I racked up a $400 cellphone bill calling up brokers and owners while trolling the neighborhood I wanted to live in. This seems like a much better alternative.
The Rent.com app is free to download in App World and you can check out the product page at this link. The apps product page says it only currently supports the Tour, Bold, & Curve line with OS 4.3+ but App World is listing it as compatible with quite a few other models. Even the screenshots they are showing off in App World are from a Storm/Torch.
