Seattle-based brokerage

Seattle-based brokerage Redfin has launched a property search mobile application designed for Apple’s iPad tablet, the company announced this week.

The free app allows users to "swipe" the tablet screen with a finger to see a map of search results, property thumbnails, listing details, and photos on one screen, without having to switch back and forth between pages.

The app pays particular attention to listings photos, allowing users to view and zoom in on full-screen photos and see photos on a map or in a photo gallery. Property details include a history of for-sale price changes and dates on and off market, as well as Agent Insights, which are comments Redfin agents make about properties they’ve toured.

A search results sorting option called "Redfin Special Blend" prioritizes the homes the site thinks will be most interesting to the user because the site has more information on the homes, such as agent comments.

Users can also share listings directly from the app via email or Twitter. Registered users can save searches and listings as well as store their own notes and photos. The app syncs with a user’s Redfin account.

Thus far, the app has about 4.5 stars and 33 reviews since its launch in the Apple App Store.

Redfin updated its iPhone property search app in August, and launched an app for Google’s Android platform in July.
