Trulia And Zillow Bring Real Estate Apps To The Kindle Fire

The Kindle Fire is has started to ship and w’re hearing about the thousands of apps which will work on the customized Android tablet, including Facebook, Pandora, Netflix, Angry Birds, Zynga, Hulu Plus and ESPN ScoreCenter. Today, real estate search platforms Trulia and Zillow are both launching dedicated apps for the Kindle Fire.

Trulia’s new tablet app will leverage Kindle Fire’s extra-wide viewing angle, and will focus on list-view, photo search and full-screen slideshows. Unlike the site’s other mobile apps, this will not be a map-based app.

With the app you can personalize your apartment or home search by setting filters and search parameters, use photo gallery search to view property slideshows on the tablet’s entire screen, save searches to your account, and contact the listing agent to get more details or schedule a showing.

Similarly, Zillow’s app, which is map-based, allows you to search a database of nearly 100 million homes, view homes for sale, homes for rent and recently sold homes, filter by home type, listing type, home size, beds, baths, and price, view full-screen photos, and save favorite homes and searches.
