We’re excited to announce that Trovit has recently launched an integration of Google+ Sign-In: you can now quickly and safely sign in to Trovit using your Google+ account! But that’s not all: this integration allows you to instantly download the Trovit Apps for Android in order to search on the go, and it enriches the sharing experience when you share a listing or several search results to Google+ by encouraging your friends to take action.

Google+ Sign-In is also present in the Trovit Apps (both for iOS and Android): if a friend shares a Trovit listing on Google+, clicking on the link will open it in the app if you’ve got it installed.

Trovit is participating in the Google+ developer sandbox at Google I/O this week in San Francisco, where we’ll be demoing this technology. We look forward to seeing you there!

by Sophia Casas September 3, 2012. Category: Tools. Tagged , , . Leave a comment

It’s been a while since we launched the Trovit Jobs app, so we decided to give it a bit of a face scrub (and that’s not all- we’ve incorporated several new features as well!).

Aside from the new look & feel, we’ve been working to make the experience of searching on the app as similar to using our powerful search engine from a computer as possible! We’ve added the option to apply filters to your search in order to adjust to the location where you want to work, as well as the type of contract and the job category. We’ve improved browsing between ads, so you can swipe to quickly move on to the next job offer, and we’ve also improved favorite management. You can also set up email alerts directly from the app, as well as share interesting ads to your social networks!

Give the app a try! Download version 2 for free and let us know what you think.

Summer’s here (and so are the vacation rentals!)

by Sophia Casas May 23, 2012. Category: Trovit. Tagged , , . 3 Comments

Just in time for the warm weather that’s in store in the next months, we’ve launched our holiday rentals vertical in three new countries: Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States, making vacation rental search available in six countries total (Spain, France and Italy launched some months ago).

We’ve tailored our search engine to a short-term rental seeker’s needs: you can search for available rentals by specifying an arrival date and departure date, search by the number of guests in your party, and filter by amenities such as air conditioning, swimming pool, wi-fi, wheelchair access… up to 25 different amenities!

No one better to recommend a destination than each country’s natives on the Trovit staff, so we asked each country’s team members to recommend a destination:

“I’d go to Bodensee, a lovely lake with crystal-clear water, close to the mountains and with easy access to Austria and Switzerland. There’s a flower island, and James Bond once did a stunt on the lake!” – Marisa Sigg, Trovit Germany, Switzerland and Austria

“I’d visit Berlin. It hosts lots of alternative culture and art, it’s full of young people from all over the world and it’s cheap, with a vibrant nightlife! I’d say Berlin is the German city that never sleeps.” – Sandra Saur, Trovit Germany, Switzerland and Austria

Snowdonia National Park in Wales is a must. It’s one of the most beautiful areas in the country, and you can drive for hours without seeing anyone! If it rains hard, you can see the water bouncing off the mountains in a very dramatic way, and if it’s not raining it’s great for walking and climbing.” – Sançar Sahin, Trovit UK

“Anywhere in California: Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Palm Springs, Yosemite… I could go on for days, California has something for everyone!” – Chelsea Jimenez, Trovit US

 

Where will you go next? Will you take the Trovit stressball with you?
