Rightmove is a popular UK resource for property search, whether it be looking to buy or let residential and commercial listings. Already sporting an app for Windows Phone, the company has just released a new app for Windows 8.1. If you're familiar with either the web or mobile experience, you'll definitely want to check out this Windows app in your property search.
The general setup and UI is similar to what's included in the Windows Phone version, but you're able to enjoy the search on a larger screen. Since we're also looking at Windows 8.1 support, the team has enabled multiple features that are available in the latest version of the operating system. From being able to contact estate agents to saving searches and properties, there's a lot on offer to help you out.
There are over a million properties listed in the catalogue, and there's no need to spend a few days in the area you're potentially looking to move to for information on local services and points of interest. The Rightmove apps are able to lend a hand when you're searching around with not only property information, but stations and other public services.
Here's the feature set from the Windows Store listing:
- Search the biggest bank of properties available
- It is specifically designed to get the best from your Windows device
- Fast access to recently viewed and saved searches
- Fast access to recently viewed and saved properties
- See properties nearby from the hub page
- View photos and floorplans of a property that you’re interested in
- See stations and schools near a property
- Learn about the area before your viewing by looking at property in the UK with Streetview.
- Move between properties with ‘previous’ and ‘next’
- Contact estate and lettings agents and developers directly in-app
