Android Tablet support is finally here!

We have just released a new update to the Android app which adds support for Android Tablets. There have been few tablets coming to the market like the Xoom, or Samsung Galaxy, so we decided to give a facelift to our app with enhanced UI for larger screens. We also added few usability enhancements. Besides the minor bug fixes, and Tablet support we have also added a special screen for sending emails so we can streamline the email sending process without having to use the phone's email client. It's now can all be done from within the app, although Android makes cross app integration more user friendly. This feature also helps us track email events for landlords in real time as opposed to having to wait for analytics events uploaded from the device.

Android App Update

We have just launched a new update to our Android App. The Android App was missing filtering functionality and this release brings that important feature to our Android users. Many users requested the ability to filter, so we hope this makes it a lot easier now to house hunt on the Android. We have also introduced featured and rentals with incentives, so it is easier to find rentals with great incentives while on the go.
The Android UI was also streamlined to make switching between map and rental list views easier.
Few other fixes were done on the app to address some location detection issues.
