Trulia, a leading site for home buyers, sellers, renters and real estate professionals, announced the launch of Trulia Rentals for iPhone, an innovative new app for iPhone and iPod touch dedicated to renters looking for the best place to live.
The app does more than just let prospective renters browse by zip code or neighborhood for current rentals — it keeps them in-the-know about new listings almost immediately, via push notifications and color-coded markers which note newer properties.
Trulia Rentals for iPhone Features include:
New Property Notifications: Stay updated on all the newest rental listings in your area via push notifications.
Color-coded Listings: Listings are organized in order of time-on-market — from newest to oldest. A green marker means the listing was added in the last 24 hours. A grey marker indicates that the listing has already been viewed, and a black marker indicates an unviewed listing that is more than 24 hours old.
Saved Searches: Just select your search criteria, give it a name, and get notified about any new listings that might be a match.
Neighborhood Info: See where restaurants, schools and other points of interest are in relation to homes or apartments for rent.
Agent Contact: When you need more information, easily contact a broker or landlord using the app.
“The needs of a renter are very different than the needs of a consumer looking to buy. The cycle and timeframe is much shorter, so delivering push notifications to our users may mean the difference between landing your dream rental or missing out on the best place on the market,” said Lee Clancy, VP of Consumer Products. “As a company, Trulia is committed to delivering unique experiences through product innovation. As the number of renters continues to grow, we’ll provide them with accurate and timely information they require right on their iPhone or iPod touch.”
Trulia Rentals for iPhone joins a suite of top-rated apps for iOS:

The Trulia Rentals App will be available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPod touch or at the iTunes app store.
