Today, we’re excited to share that the Zillow Real Estate Android App has been named an Editors’ Choice by the Google Play Store. Chosen for high quality and intuitive design, long-term popularity, and innovative use of Android features, Editors’ Choice is a curated collection that highlights some of the very best apps available on Android.
As a company that has tipped toward mobile, with more than half of Zillow traffic now coming from a mobile device each month, we are honored with this recognition. After all, creating the best mobile home shopping experience is what we love to do!
Launched in 2010, the Zillow Real Estate Android App capitalized on the success of Zillow iPhone app, from which we quickly realized people wanted access to all of Zillow’s real estate data, for-sale and for-rent listings, and tons of other information on surrounding homes when they needed it most — while they are out looking for homes or exploring neighborhoods. We’ve also been able to take advantage of platform-specific features and functionalities — such as the integration of Google Street View, Android voice search capabilities and, more recently, Google Now — to further enhance Zillow on mobile and bring new tools to shoppers. Since launch, we’ve evolved our app, incorporating Android’s advancing technology and listening to user feedback. Today, more than 100 homes a second are viewed on Zillow Mobile each month.
