neat apps and digital magazines. I have also met several of them, and they are always enthusiast about the industry.
While it appears that their primary development platform is iOS, this is slowly changing. Still there is a bit of good news last week when an Auto Trader app appeared on the Marketplace. In fact last I heard, the parent company of Auto Trader, Trader Media Group, was planning a possible move to the Windows Phone platform. This evaluation has perhaps resulted in a more receptive opinion of Redmond's gorgeous mobile OS.
Users can search for vehicles based on a number of filters, including locations, make, distance, price range etc. Technical specifications of vehicles are available, as are further details such as images, mileage and performances. You can even dial the merchant directly from within the app, which while isn't that unique, is still a neat feature to include.
Overall, the app appears to be brilliantly build and does what it was designed to do. It is a very good first effort, so here's hoping Auto Trader will consider releasing more apps on the Windows Phone platform.
Auto Trader is available now for Windows Phone 8 devices such as the HTC Windows Phone 8X and Nokia Lumia 920.
