App-solutely fabulous!

We think we do a pretty good job when it comes property (even if we do say so ourselves), whether it’s helping you find the perfect property, find sold prices in your area or look up your local agent.

But we all know moving isn’t as simple as finding the perfect house and living happily ever after. What about all the other household things like furniture, interior design, mortgages and TV?

Well it turns out ‘there’s an app for that!’

To celebrate the launch of the Apple iPad 2 we’ve scoured the Apple App Store in search of a few apps that will hopefully make house-hunting and your life in general, a little bit easier.


We couldn’t go any further without mentioning Rightmove’s free iPhone app. With access to over a million properties our app lets you search for property in your exact location.
