AuctionZip has announced that with the launch of AuctionZip Mobile, auction-goers now can search upcoming auctions using smartphones and similar devices.
AuctionZip Mobile offers AuctionZip’s signature ZIP Code Locator in a compact, streamlined design. The new mobile site functions with all major mobile devices, offering compatibility with iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry and other devices.
AuctionZip maintains the world’s largest directory of live auction listings, with more than 200,000 auctions listed annually.
The establishment of AuctionZip Mobile makes locating antique, estate and storage auctions faster and easier than ever before.
Visitors to AuctionZip Mobile will be able to search for auctions by ZIP Code, browse listings and view detailed photo galleries, all from their smartphone device. Smartphone users also will be able to phone or e-mail auctioneers, map auction locations and get directions to local auctions.
AuctionZip Mobile responds to a massive increase in mobile traffic to AuctionZip in recent months: Since January 2011, mobile device traffic to the site has more than doubled, reflecting a demand for this improved functionality as well as the rapid growth of the global smartphone market. Industry research leader International Data Corporation (IDC)’s Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker indicates that, “Vendors will ship a total of 472 million smartphones in 2011 compared to roughly 305 million units shipped in 2010. That figure will nearly double to 982 million by the end of 2015.”
“AuctionZip has long been one of the best resources for finding and bidding at local auctions,” comments Steve Oriola, AuctionZip Senior Vice President of Product Management. “We know our dedicated users are frequently on the go, and rely on AuctionZip’s powerful search tools such as our ZIP Code Locator to find local auctions around the country. AuctionZip Mobile incorporates the same features AuctionZip users love, but now in an easy-to-use interface optimized for use with all major mobile devices.”
