Nowadays just about everything can be done online, and that includes shopping around for a new car. It used to take weekends of driving up and down Voortrekker road and stopping in at all the little car dealerships in the hope of spotting a) something that appeals to me and b) a decent enough bargain, and considering the fact that in my youth I wrote off three cars, then you can understand just how much time was wasted trying to source a replacement!
Anyway, the point is that in recent years plenty of credible online car search portals have popped up here in South Africa, one of the better ones being Cars.co.za, a comprehensive search portal that allows you to search and browse through both new and second hand cars (and bikes), get car finance quotes, offers both industry and car related news articles, and even throws in a community forum while it’s at it!
Having already previously joined the explosive mobile movement through the release of their iOS Cars.co.za app for iPhone and iPad, they’ve now gone and released something for us Android-lovers out there: the very first Cars.co.za Android mobile app!
Developed by South African mobile application development house Mushroom Cloud, the Cars.co.za Android App is ultra slick and packed to the brim with features, all of which is geared to allowing you the best car browsing experience possible, anytime, anywhere.
I tested the app on both my Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 phone and Proline Smart AK888-13 9.7″ tablet and was pleased to find that the App responded well to both form factors as well as all orientations. It renders smoothly, it’s search functionality is rather comprehensive (never mind all the other added features like news, multi-image displays, reviews, and various tools), and all in all I thought it to be a really good tool and certainly one I could see myself making use of when I eventually need to start thinking about swapping my Getz out for something else.
So definitely a job well done by the Cars.co.za team.
