Abritas’s SwapandMove online service is now available as a free app, with the same functionality as the original website. Tenants can easily register using the new app, view property matches, browse and view detailed information of properties and manage account settings, all from the palm of their hand.
When tenants search for a potential mutual exchange, gaining an in-depth knowledge of the other property, locality and rents is vital. The app provides detailed information about each property, from the location of childcare services to local housing allowances rates.
The advanced mapping tool has proved to be a key feature for tenants on the SwapandMove website and this has been replicated in the app. This allows locations to be easily specified using interactive maps and can be restricted down to a quarter-mile radius. Tenants can see the approximate area of the property and use Google Streetview to browse the location and neighbourhood, local transport, schools and healthcare facilities.
Stephen Oliver, director, SwapandMove, said, “Creating an app for tenants has been planned since the launch of the service. The new app will increase tenant accessibility, provide access to a fast one-touch home-swap service and conveniently connect on-the-go users.”
The SwapandMove app is available free for iOS and Android devices from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
