New Facebook Apartment App Beta Test Launch

Thank you again for your help and support testing our initial version of the Rent Jungle site back in May! We have integrated your feedback. We are excited to announce a new product and could use your help again.

Next week we will be launching an innovation that is first of its kind in the apartment listing industry: a Facebook application that allows you to search for apartments and share them with your friends without leaving the Facebook site. Before we open up the application to the public, we need some help testing it. Please visit the application at http://apps.facebook.com/rentjungle. You will need a Facebook account to access all the features. Once you have taken a look, please comment here with any feedback and improvement ideas. If you like what you see, please become a fan of the application by clicking “become a fan” on the application homepage.

In addition to the new Facebook application, we have significantly increased our inventory (e.g., we now have over 17,000 listings within 10 miles of Manhattan ). We have added many new features including the ability to search for points of interest (e.g., Starbucks, Whole Foods, gyms, etc.) next to your desired apartment. Best of all, we are now receiving ~1,000 unique visitors a day and growing! If you have not visited the site recently, please do so by clicking here.

Thank you again for your help and support!
