Property search site HotPads added an application for Amazon's Kindle Fire to its suite of mobile search apps earlier this month. HotPads' free Kindle Fire app offers map-based search of for-sale, rental, hotel and vacation rental listings; high-resolution photos; advanced search filters; integration with HotPads' website and other mobile devices; and the ability to mark listings as favorites and email properties. The Kindle Fire does not support GPS; Wi-Fi must therefore be enabled to search. HotPads also has a mobile site and apps for smartphones and tablets that run on Google's Android platform, as well as apps for Apple's iPhone and iPad. Real estate search sites Zillow and Trulia released Kindle Fire apps in November.Screenshot of HotPads Kindle Fire app. Contact Inman News: Email Letter to the Editor ...
