Rent Compass is a Google maps mashup to find apartments for rent in major Canadian cities like Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton or Vancouver. The site uses Ajax to change the layout and works with as little clicks as possible, we also built the mashup to display hundreds of apartment/house pins on the map without compromising performance. Rent Compass also developed the first Canadian apartment rentals search applications for mobile devices; namely the iPhone, iPad and Google Android. Since we are obsessed with performance we made our mobile apps super fast as well, with focus on ease of usability. That's why our users love them and give great reviews.
We also license our platform to other industries or geographic locations.
Mobile commerce is a huge business opportunity because, at least in the United States, there is not much infrastructure to support it. That's why mobile platform company Appcelerator recently announced its integration with the PayPal API. Now iPhone, Android and iPad developers using the paid version of the company's Titanium framework also get the ability to conduct mobile commerce.
Gowalla, Foursquare, Yelp, Facebook Places, the list goes on. There's certainly no shortage of methods to tell people where you are and what you're doing while you're there. Startup Whatser, built on the SoGeo API for location-based apps, has jumped into the ring with a different approach to check-in services: to be useful.
