The latest version of GeoDirectory’s GeoFindIT app has seen a major redesign which includes extra functionality.
Developed by Púca, the redesigned app now comes with an augmented reality setting. This unique function allows users to open the app anywhere to see real-time overlays of house prices, directions and more.
Users can check out local property prices by walking down their street with GeoFindIT open on their phone. When the augmented reality setting is open, the app displays price and direction information for properties in whichever direction the user’s phone is pointing.
The app draws data from the Property Price Register to ensure all property prices displayed in the app are as accurate as possible.
How it works
The GeoDirectory has assigned all 2.2 million addresses in Ireland a unique reference or fingerprint and a location code accurate to one metre. By combining this database with the Property Price Register GeoFindIT, users can access data about the prices property sold at anywhere in Ireland.
Users can search for a business or address using a keyword such as ‘café’ or if you’re looking for the closest supermarket, you can enter the name of the chain you are looking for and your closest store will be located. Users can pinpoint their starting position using their current location or by dragging and dropping the Little Helper icon to their desired start point.
GeoFindIT has over 195,000 business addresses across the Republic of Ireland and users can also find their contact details including phone numbers.
Speaking about the revised app, Dara Keogh, CEO, GeoDirectory said “We’re really excited to be able to bring such an innovative app to the market. We’ve completely changed the app since the last version. We’ve added some fantastic features to the new edition, in particular the augmented reality function. It’s something we couldn’t have done a few years ago but which really adds to the user-friendliness of the app and sets GeoFindIT apart”
