drops support for its Windows app on PC and mobile

The property listing service has started emailing users to alert them of the impending shutdown. According to the message, the Windows app will no longer be supported after October 27.

Thank you for using We want to let you know that after October 27th the Windows App will no longer be supported. The good news is that you can continue your mobile home search at — you will get the same up-to-date home listings and access to your saved listings and saved searches on our terrific mobile browser experience.

The app allows users to browse property listings to search form homes for sale or apartments for rent. It's been available for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 devices for some time, but it very much looks dated at this point. A number of the most recent reviews for the app also mention broken features, including trouble logging in. Given the state of the app, its retirement isn't completely surprising.

There's no word on whether the app will still be available on the store after October 27. However, without any updates, expect the experience to degrade further over time.

Thanks for the tip, Vince!
