Apple iPad Gains Auto Trader App: Locate That Perfect Car
If you are in the market for a new car in the United Kingdom and happen to own an Apple iPad, your search for that perfect vehicle has just got a whole lot simpler with the release of the new Auto Trader app for the Apple iPad.
The Auto Trader app for iPad enables the user to search, browse and compare the largest range of used car stock in the United Kingdom and features an image driven interface that utilised the Apple iPad screen and is visually appealing.
With the Auto Trader iOS app tapping on a specific image will kick off a media-rich experience combining full vehicle description, specifications, images and numerous other features.
The director of mobile at Auto Trader, Nick Gee says, “Our main objective was to retain the essential search element of Auto Trader and yet enhance and redefine the user experience for iPad users. We recognise that iPad users can happily use the website or the iPhone app, but simply repurposing those platforms doesn’t take advantage of the iPad’s potential. We’re delighted with the end result, have many more great ideas, and will continue to improve the experience based on the feedback we receive.”
The Auto Trader app for iPad enables the user to compare vital info such as economy rating, and performance on short listed vehicles, which has been made quick and easy via a new function called ‘Garage.”
The iOS app also features a ‘Browse Bar’ whereby the user can navigate and jump to a point in their search results based on their vehicle purchasing criteria like price, location and mileage, and can share vehicles and info with friends and family via email. The application also features integrated calls-to-action, including dealer website links, contact details and maps.
The Auto Trader app enables the user to quickly browse through thousands of vehicles and they can choose the scale of an image so they can change how many cars they see whilst browsing. You can swipe the screen or drag the browse bar to spot the car that catches your attention, whilst refining your car search is a breeze.
We also have for your viewing consideration a quick demonstration video showing just how easily the Auto Trader app for iPad works and you can check that out below. For those wishing to take advantage of the Auto Trader app you can download it from iTunes to your Apple iPad running iOS 3.2 or above as a free download.
