We’re excited to officially announce the launch of our new Places4Students mobile app, after several months of development and testing!
This mobile app will enable students to search for off-campus accommodations, roommates or sublets directly on their smartphones. The mobile app is now available for download on iPhone and Android devices through their respective app stores.
The Places4Students mobile app is exclusively for students and aims to simplify the process for them to search for a rental unit. It will also help property owners, leasing managers and landlords to connect with potential tenants more efficiently; as students can contact them directly through the app. Landlords will still register and manage their online rental listings through the website, not the mobile app.
Over the past few years, there has been a dramatic increase in the amount of web-users who access Places4Students.com through their smartphones. In 2014, nearly 20% of our users accessed the website from either a smartphone or tablet device.
Places4Students.com expects that mobile traffic will continue to grow in coming years, and this new app will improve the users’ experience on their mobile devices. “We are very excited to now offer our proven Off-Campus Housing Service into the hands of our users via a mobile app, allowing for convenience of use to students and accelerated rental leads for landlords!” said Darren Vanecko, President of Places4Students.com.
At this point in time, the app is only available for iPhone and Android users, as these operating systems were used for over 95% of the mobile traffic to our website.
