In addition to the new look, the apps are getting new functionality, including the ability for users to flip through a bunch of thumbnails for potential homes without leaving the map of their search results. iPad users will be getting a completely redesigned experience for browsing homes as well, including the ability to flip through pictures of a listing like paging through a photo book.
All that adds up to something Zillow is quite excited about.
“iOS 7 empowers a photo-centric consumer experience with magazine-style listing pages, giving home shoppers a faster, more visual and ultimately more fun way to shop for homes,” Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow’s Vice President for Marketing and Mobile said in a press release.
Those new capabilities are improvements to an already popular platform. Zillow reported that users spent more than 9 million hours on their mobile apps last month alone. In fact, the company has shifted to a mobile-first strategy in recent years.
