Posted by at 5:28 pm on August 9, 2010

HomeAway has announced the launch of its free HomeAway Vacation Rental Search iPhone application. The app, developed by Mobiata, creators of the best-selling travel applications FlightTrack and TripDeck,aims to make it easier than ever for travelers, especially families, to search, filter and share the more than 230,000 global vacation rental properties available on HomeAway.com.

The app incorporates many of the same convenient features found on HomeAway.com including filter by number of bedrooms and price, but also enables users to search as specifically as “Lake Travis, pet-friendly, outdoor grill, with pool,” for example.

Additional highlights of the HomeAway application include the ability to:

  • Make it easy to share vacation rental options with groups of friends and family via e-mail, Facebook or Twitter
  • Rotate the iPhone to landscape view for travelers to see detailed property photos in gallery form
  • View the physical location of vacation rentals via Google Maps and search by proximity to landmarks and geography

“As the world’s leading vacation rental marketplace, we wanted to create the first and finest app for travelers to quickly access vacation rentals, and more importantly, share it with others to plan group trips,” says Tom Hale, Chief Product Officer of HomeAway. “We wanted to give mobile users the opportunity to easily find accommodations at the touch of a button should they choose something other than a hotel.”

The HomeAway Vacation Rental Search app is free to use, and iPhone users can download the application from the iPhone App Store, or at www.homeaway.com/info/travelers/iPhoneApp.
