Finding a new apartment can be tricky, especially if you are busy or are moving to a new city. Using an apartment-hunting app on your iPhone can be helpful if you find yourself with time to look for apartments while on the go. Although there are more than a few apartment hunting apps in the iTunes store, they are not all categorized the same way and some apps may only cover a certain area. Simplify your apartment search with these popular mobile options for apartment hunting.
Apartment Finder is a free app associated with the ApartmentFinder.com online database. This app is an all-in-one app that allows you to manage your entire apartment search process with your iPhone. You can search by location criteria such as city or zip code, or by property criteria such as price range, number of rooms, or pet policies. Contact information is provided so that you can call to make an appointment or email with some additional questions directly from the app. Keep records of your apartment hunting by taking your own pictures and notes about the apartments you look at to keep in your favorites list. The Apartment Finder app for iPhone also integrates the search results with a map so that you can see exactly where the property is as well as get driving directions from your current location.
