Real Estate for Sale and Rent, leading property portal in Uganda Lamudi hits iOS with a new app in Uganda today as a step to capture the growing smartphone market in the country. The launch of the iOS app follows the successful roll out of the Lamudi Android app in Uganda last month.
The iOS app is now available on the Apple Store in 16 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America including Morocco, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tunisia, Uganda, Ivory Coast, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Peru, Mexico and Colombia … and counting, bringing your dream home ever closer to a tap away.
The launch of Lamudi’s Android app last month was a great success. We saw huge demand from our customers in Uganda and beyond, so we decided to keep the momentum going by moving on to iOS straight away.

The Lamudi app is perfect for house-hunters to rent, buy or sell property on the go. The iOS and Android apps are a response to the growing demand for mobile internet services in emerging markets since smartphone use in sub-Saharan Africa is forecast to rise by 40% each year until 2017, according to a recent report from research firm Frost & Sullivan.
The app features a customized search function for users to easily filter results by country and provides match alerts by notification as soon as a property that matching their needs hits the market. House-hunters can also bookmark their favorite properties to access at any time and on any device.
All listings on the app feature high-quality photo galleries, detailed property information, maps, and multiple contact details for property owners or agents. Users can also share their favorite properties with family and friends via Facebook, Twitter or email.
