Rent Compass iphone app new release

A new release of the RentCompass iPhone app has been released. It took a bit long this time to approve the app, but it was finally released. The new release includes minor bug fixes and tweaks as well as optimizations.
Unfortunately this time around, the update process is not as easy as before, you will need to delete the old app and install a new one due to migration issues.

If you don't have the app, and looking for apartments for rent in Toronto or other Canadian cities, give the Rent Compass iPhone app a go, to find rentals with your iPhone, it is definitely a much improved experience for those who have a busy daily life to search with their computers.
And if you have other mobile phones/devices, find rental apartments on the go with the other Rent Compass apps/solutions on mobile devices.

Android app update

Based on popular demand, we have added support for legacy Android devices. The RentCompass Android app now supports Android 1.5 and 1.6 devices as well as 2.0+ devices.

Legacy devices are a bit of a problem on the Android platform, however, we were able to downgrade some of the functionality of the RentCompass Android app without sacrificing performance or functionality.

Since Android 1.5 and 1.6 still make up 25% of Android devices in Canada, we decided to support these users then upgrade to a later target OS when the the legacy device market penetration becomes less in the future.
