Zoopla Vs Rightmove App Round 2


Which gave the best viewing experience of property photos and details?

A picture speaks a thousand words and that’s true when it comes to viewing the details of a chosen property. For a small device the iphone gives a very good viewing experience. so do the apps take full advantage of these capabilities.

Both Rightmove and Zoopla were very easy to use and had good quality photos on all the properties we looked at. Each detail had a full description of each property, the ability to save the ones for further reference or star them as favorite properties and the ability to email them to friends and arrange a viewing.

Zoopla Vs Rightmove Round 2

Disappointingly the photos, or maybe it is the app in general, didn’t take advantage of the landscape view when the iphone was turned 90%. Though maybe this isn’t an overly necessary feature, but it may of given one the edge over the other.

The only specific difference we could notice between the two were the ability to view the photos as a slide show on the Rightmove app. This didn’t appear to be available on the Zoopla app. A very small difference.

Rightmove app
Photos – yes
Slide show – Yes
Full description – yes
view on map – yes
email details – yes
on side – no

Zoopla app
Photos – yes
Slide show – no
Full description – yes
view on map – yes
email details – yes
on side – no

The Rightmove app had one feature more – though having a slide show isn’t enough to win a round on as the usability of Zooplas app felt great and a slide show alone is barely going to make a difference on whether you view a property.

Verdict: A draw. Close but Rightmove’s slide show wasn’t enough to give it the advantage over Zoopla.

0.5 Zoopla
1.5 Rightmove
