Zoopla Vs Rightmove App Final Round

ZOOPLA V RIGHTMOVE PROPERTY APPS FINAL ROUND

The apps are just pocket store fronts to the main web site and company
If the app works great but all communication via the web site or estate agents fail then the app has served little purpose

So which web site and company have the greater stability? Which one claims the highest visitor traffic in the UK and thereby is most likely to have proportionately more buyers viewing?

the final round

the final round for the battle of the apps

Already the apps get their own ratings on itunes – current scores:

Zoopla
version 1.0
18 ratings 4.5 stars

Rightmove
version 1.1
17388 ratings 3.5 stars

We felt that this isn’t a true reflection as the numbers for Zoopla are minimal at this point.

So we decided the main site would serve as another good barometer.

According to Alexa
Zoopla.co.uk On line since 21-Feb-1997
Alexa traffic rank for Zoopla.co.uk: 197 in the UK

Rightmove.co.uk On line since 07-Sep-1999
Alexa traffic rank for Rightmove.co.uk: 29 in the UK

Verdict: Rightmove is likely to have more UK buyers using the app as it still has a large monopoly over the others in web traffic.

Final Result: Draw
3.5 Zoopla
3.5 Rightmove

FINAL CONCLUSION

The Rightmove app would of easily lost if it didn’t address the bugs in version 1.0. Since 1.1 the app is stable and still offers the most properties for sale and rent.
Zoopla however is a much easier app with some beautiful extras tucked away in the background.

Both apps in our test provided a faultless experience.

Tepilo are about to launch their version as another challenger to these apps

Meanwhile my suggestion is you use both apps when searching for a property as they both have strengths that make them worthy to use on your iphone

    I have the zoopla app, i love how it puts all the property’s on the map on my Android. You can then drive around and actually see the propertys, allays best to make an appointment though. People don’t like you looking in their windows I imagine.
