Apartment rentals on the go just got better

Continuing with our innovation in the Canadian rental market, RentCompass is releasing an iPad specific application to give an enhanced experience over the existing mobile application. With the iPad release, users can now search for apartment and houses for rent on the go without requiring a desktop.

The iPad vibrant screen will allow people looking for rentals to see large photos of the properties listed on RentCompass. Having a larger screen will also allow apartment hunters to browse on the RentCompass rental maps easier than on smaller mobile devices. The RentCompass for the iPad application also uses many new features available only on the iPad.

Stay tuned for the upcoming release of the iPad custom version of the application. In the meanwhile, you can use the iPhone version of the application, it is still functional on the iPad.
