Smartphone app review: Halifax’s augmented reality Home Finder

Halifax released its new Home Finder smartphone app today, offering users a new method of searching for property information on iPhone and Android devices.

Mobile is an important area for property companies, with a customer survey from Rightmove finding that 52% of respondents had used a mobile platform to search for a property.

It’s easy to see why house hunters would use mobile. If you see a property for sale it’s useful to be able to search the details right there and then.

Rightmove’s smartphone app already caters to this market, but Halifax’s app has a trick up its sleeve that potentially makes it the best property finding app currently available.
