“Apartments by PadMapper Lite” has joined “Apartments by PadMapper” on the iPhone app store. The only differences between the two are the price ($Free vs. $1.99), and one of them is missing the ability to modify the filters. The lite version basically just gives you a big list of the couple hundred closest listings sorted by distance (although I believe it leaves the sublets out, those can be enabled via the filters on the paid version).Â
Basically, if you’re about to embark on an apartment hunt, you can try the Lite version and see if it helps you out. If you like it, and you want to save some time, you can get the paid versions filtering prowess for a couple of bucks. The paid version comes with warm fuzzy feeling from helping me be able to afford food/rent.
