(Digital Champions tested the new Manchester Move app)
It’s now easier to find a new home if you don’t have a computer, thanks to the new Manchester Move app.
The app, which is free to download from Google Play and the App Store, means you can search and bid for properties on your smartphone on the go.
The app is designed so bidders with small data packages on their phones don’t need to worry about using too much.
Before it went ‘live’, the app was road tested by Northwards’ Digital Champions.
Yvonne Johnson said: “The app is straightforward and easy to follow. The format is good and well laid out. It’s easier to move around than the main site.”
Manchester Move is a partnership between Manchester City Council and around 20 not-for-profit landlords, including Northwards.
It's a single access point for people looking for a new home in the city.
Properties are advertised as soon as they become available, so new homes are added to the list daily.
