HomeAway teamed with Mobiata to launch its first mobile app, HomeAway Vacation Rental Search by Mobiata for the iPhone.
The free app enables users to filter by number of bedrooms and price, and also to search by destination and amenities.
iPhone users can share the results with groups of friends via email, Facebook and Twitter, rotate the iPhone to landscape view to peruse property photos, and search for vacation rentals via nearby landmarks and geographies using Google Maps.
A HomeAway spokesman says the vacation rental firm plans to bring the app to other mobile platforms "in the future."
Here's a YouTube demo of the HomeAway iPhone app.
Mobiata creates its own apps, including FlightTrack and FlightTrack Pro, and develops apps for third parties, as well.
