If you own a smartphone, you probably receive at least one update notification a day. Whether it’s a recommended upgrade to your operating system or favorite app, the update is meant to make your life easier. Looking to build upon its current function (and popularity) apartment rental app RadPad has just introduced a series of new features for its users.

Launched in September 2012, RadPad claims to be “the only iPhone app made to find the coolest apartments, condos, and houses for rent.” The latest update includes “new in-app sounds and design modifications for the app’s navigation and listing detail pages,” according to an article by AppAdvice.

The update also enhances the app’s Quick Message feature with real-time messaging which enables quick and simple communication between tenants and landlords. This feature eliminates the need to use a personal e-mail address to send a message, prevents fraud by tracking the location of the property owner when they send a message, notifies the renter when a message to a landlord has been read, and sends alerts the second either party receives a message.

Additionally, the update also introduces a new feature – DriveTime – that gives the renter the distance between the rental and say, their office so they can calculate their commute time. Currently, RadPad is available in several major U.S. cities including Chicago, Dallas, Austin, Houston, Boston, Orlando, Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle, among others.
