Propertynews.com, Northern Ireland's definitive property portal, is pleased to announce the latest upgrade to its very own GPS enabled iPhone Application. This free app will allow you to search for property that is for sale or rent in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland anytime, anywhere, using an iPhone or iPod Touch. Whether you are looking for residential property, commercial property, land or perhaps an auction property, the new Propertynews.com iPhone app will enable you to find your dream property.
Key functionality of the app includes the ability to search properties for sale or rent in your current location - highlighting instantly how far the property is from you and directions right to the front door! Alternatively you can conduct a multiple area search for properties anywhere throughout Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and save your favourites for future reference. You can also save your search, create email alerts and hide any properties for future visits to the app.
You can also access property photographs via a slideshow feature which scrolls though images in full screen mode and view property statistics detailing every price history and page views coupled with prices of comparable local properties.
The app also offers you immediate access to Estate Agents through a 'Contact Agent' button allowing you to call or email the agent directly from your phone. Also, don’t forget to forward the details of your dream property to friends or share to social networking sites at the touch of a button.
Download the Propertynews.com app today and see what's on the market in your area.

Love this app BUT...
Firstly, lots of great improvements: the property's marketing history & being able to swizz through pics quickly without turning the phone around is great (but why does it then bounce you onto the next property? Silly!). Also, this app crashes constantly often mid-search meaning you have to start again. The new interface is slick on first glance but the sub-folder filing system for faves and searches is over-busy: I should be able to stay in favourites to compare properties without being bounced out into the main search every time. Most importantly the search engine itself continues to be inferior to the main website - not all properties show up on mobile devices. I think this is because there is an inconsistency in how properties are filed. For example if you're looking for a property in County Down and that hasn't been specified in the listing, it won't appear in your search. This is a huge oversight. Standardised info would help immensely. Otherwise you're left trawling through all of Northern Ireland listings which is about as useful as a leaky bucket. Please fix this. Cheers.
Very handy bit of kit! Finding it useful at the moment looking for a new place. I have young children so find I don't get much of a chance to browse while in the house these days. when I'm out and about I can easily identify properties I like, already following up a few promising places so job done!
Really good app! User friendly and great layout throughout! Best property app out there!!
