As with motors.co.uk online, the app helps users find their ideal car by evaluating the vehicle against a list of chosen requirements. The application is called ‘motors.co.uk car search’ and is available in the ‘utilities’ iStore category. The app can also be found and downloaded by searching for ‘motors’ keyword in the app store and looking out for the famous motors.co.uk's Big Blue Wheel. The app will display details for up to 10 cars at once to enable users to compare vehicles as well as enabling users to create a shortlist of their favourite cars.

The motors.co.uk app is the latest in a series of developments from the website to tap into the popularity of new technologies to offer additional sales platforms to dealers who advertise on the site. Motors.co.uk recently launched a mobile site which enables buyers to contact dealers directly via their phones once their search results are displayed, helping dealers to reach more potential customers.

Katie Wardle, marketing manager at motors.co.uk, said: “We are constantly working to make it even easier for car buyers to search for their next vehicle and, with sales of the iPhone continuing to soar in the UK, the introduction of a dedicated app will provide an additional link between buyers and dealers.

“The app itself is extremely user friendly and, combined with our local and national search function, will ensure that dealers continue to receive high quality leads from advertising their stock on motors.co.uk”.

Motors.co.uk, which launched in January 2007, is part of a wider network of sites now visited by over 3.3 million car buyers every month and features 15,500 new cars and nearly 150,000 used cars for sale from car retailers and private sellers across the UK. The website provides free history checks, advice and guidance covering every part of the car buying process to help motorists make informed choices about their next car. In just three years motors.co.uk has grown to become the UK’s second largest motoring advertising network, signing major partnerships to supply used cars for The Daily Mail online, parkers.co.uk and The Independent amongst others. Motors.co.uk is part of Associated Northcliffe Digital (AND), the digital consumer division of the Daily Mail and General Trust plc, whose portfolio includes Jobsite.co.uk, FindaProperty.com, Primelocation.com and motors.co.uk.
