Free Zillow iPhone App - Version 2 Release

About 2 months ago, Zillow rolled out our first iPhone app with tremendous success.  In 2 months we have had over 400,000 downloads, immediately giving our listing partners a mobile component, on the most popular smart phone real estate application, to their marketing plan. 

Thanks to feedback from our users, some smart engineers, and updates Apple just rolled out to the smart phone's operating system - we now have a second version of the app that is even more useful. 

The Zillow iPhone app can now:

  • Filter search results by beds, baths, price, and status
  • Save searches
  • Save favorite homes
  • Apple also recently release Push Notification technology.  Now, if you have a saved search and new homes come into the system that match, you will see a numbered badge on the Zillow iPhone App icon which indicates that there are new homes to see.  Then, you can launch the App to see these results under your Favorites tab. 

    If you already have Version 1 downloaded, you can update to V2 in your "Updates" tab in the app store to get the new version.  (you'll also want to make sure you update your iPhone software to the new OS 3.0).

    If you missed the first release and don't know everything the Zillow iPhone app can do, go download the Zillow iPhone App today or watch this short video:

     

    The Zillow iPhone app can follow you as you move through a neighborhood, while displaying information on approximately 90 million homes, including those that are for sale or recently sold.
