Zillow launches Android Tablet app, incorporates voice search and GPS

Zillow launches Android Tablet app

Zillow joins the ranks of real estate search sites on Android, releasing a “photo-driven home shopping experience built specifically for the Android Tablet’s high-resolution, touch-screen interface,” just a week after launching their Kindle Fire app, bringing their mobile app count to eight available formats.

Zillow says their Android Tablet App is the only real estate app available for the Android Tablet that allows shoppers to compare homes side by side. Additionally, the app offers a large touch-screen map for searching rent or sale listings, full screen photos of homes with Google Street View integrated. Users can install a widget to browse nearby homes from the tablet home screen based on the Android Tablet’s current GPS location.

Try voice searching for “San Jose homes for sale”

One of the cool things about Android devices is the voice search capabilities which Zillow has taken advantage of by offering voice search where you can simply say an address or even just a city and the app finds results. We have found voice search on Android to be extremely reliable and accurate and we predict the same within the Zillow app. Also, listings are shareable from within the app to Facebook, Twitter and over email.

“With today’s announcement, we are proud to say that Zillow has the largest collection of mobile real estate apps,” said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow CEO. “Zillow continues to reinvent the mobile home shopping experience and the Zillow Android Tablet App is no exception. The app was designed just for the Android Tablet and brings two entirely new features to real estate shopping – side-by-side compare and a nearby-homes widget, giving home shoppers two new ways to shop for homes.”
