Lamudi App Now Available On iOS: Global property portal makes mobile app available for Apple users
Leading property portal Lamudi today launched its iOS app in Nigeria as the company seeks to capture the growing smartphone market in the country.
The launch of Lamudi’s iOS app follows the successful roll out of the company’s Android app in Nigeria last month. The app, Lamudi: Real Estate for Sale and Rent, is now available on iOS devices in 16 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Lamudi, a division of African Internet Holding, has so far made the iOS app available in nine countries in Africa.
Allie Morse, CEO Lamudi West and Central Africa said “Lamudi is very excited about the launch of our iOS app, enabling property searchers to browse 1000’s of top properties on Lamudi from their mobile devices.”
Managing Director, Lamudi Nigeria during the official launch of the Lamudi iOS App commented on the giant leaps Lamudi Nigeria has taken since its official launch last year. He said “Lamudi is all about constant evolution. We launched the android app and You tube channel some months back and today we are launching the iOS app ensuring we get Lamudi Nigeria into the hands of over 30 million estimated smartphone users in Nigeria”.
Sacha Poignonnec, co-CEO of Africa Internet Holding, said: “The launch of Lamudi’s Android app last month was a great success. We saw huge demand from our customers in Nigeria and beyond, so we decided to keep the momentum going by moving on to iOS straight away.
The new iOS app puts thousands of global property listings from 16 countries in your pocket. In total, listings from nine African countries are now available on iOS. This means your dream home is now just a tap away.”
The Lamudi app provides the perfect platform for house-hunters to rent, buy or sell property on the go. The iOS and Android apps are designed to meet the growing demand for mobile internet services in emerging markets. Smartphone use in sub-Saharan Africa is forecast to rise by 40% each year until 2017, according to a recent report from research firm Frost & Sullivan.
A key feature of the app is its customised search function, which allows users to easily filter results by country. The app also provides match alerts, with users receiving a notification as soon as a property that suits their needs hits the market. House-hunters can also bookmark their favourite properties to access at any time and on any device.
All listings on the app feature high-quality photo galleries, detailed property information, maps, and multiple contact details for property owners or agents. Users can also share their favourite properties with family and friends via Facebook, Twitter or email.
The Lamudi iOS app is now available in Morocco, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tunisia, Uganda, Ivory Coast, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Peru, Mexico and Colombia.
