MagicBricks launches Version 2.0 of Android and iPhone apps

Taking IT Convergence to the next level, the leader of the online property space has launched the next build of its hugely successful Android and iPhone Apps.

Sudhir Pai, Business Head, MagicBricks explained “Our iPhone as well as Android Apps have proved to be immensely popular & the usage of these apps are significantly higher than an average WAP user. Encouraged by the usage, we have launched enhanced features. We believe that providing a host of platforms across the Web & Mobile will best serve our user needs. So the continued development MagicBricks’ Mobile Apps are a natural progression in consolidating our market dominance in the online property space.”

Having extended itself to the small screen by introducing both India’s Fastest Mobile WAP site and India’s first Android and iPhone Real Estate Apps last year. MagicBricks has gathered user insights and rigorously developed the next version of its apps. Which it now releases in the Google Play and iTunes Market places.

Version 2.0 brings many new features to the MagicBricks mobile experience. The developments center around the replication of the most used PC browser features into the new mobile apps, while customizing the interfaces for the small screen.

While the above features are available for both the iPhone and Android apps, as a Beta Launch, MagicBricks has launched Free Vastu Compliance App Integration for Android. Using the ancient Hindu doctrine of how the directional laws of nature affect human dwellings – the Vastu feature uses the Device Camera and Compass capabilities to judge directional compliance.

Users select the Vastu feature on their android phone, choose the type of location – Entry Door, Living Room, Bedroom, Kitchen, etc, point the camera and tap focus on the screen image, and the resultant Vastu compliance result will be displayed . (please refer to Screenshots below)
