2019
(Current)
Version 2.21.2028-us

In this update, you’ll see a brand-new Home screen marking the introduction of an increasingly intelligent and personalised experience. For now, you can update to the latest version of our app without going to Google Play and read our advice on finding and living with roommates. In coming weeks, we’ll be adding much more!

We’ve also made numerous improvements to the performance and design of our app.

Tell us your thoughts about these changes using the feedback button on the Home screen.

Version 2.20.1950-us

In this update, we’ve made improvements to our app's user-friendliness and visual design.

You’ll now be able to skip typing your email and password on sign in by using your fingerprint. Opt out of biometric sign in at any time on the Settings screen.

You’ll also see a redesigned Post Ad screen — explaining why you should post one for your room or search for a roommate. Hint: it’s really effective.

Tell us your thoughts about these changes using the feedback button on the Home screen.

Version 2.19.3.1860-us

In this update, we’ve improved the ease-of-use of a few key areas of our app.

Instead of hiding parts of our app behind a menu, you’ll now see a tab bar with links to the most visited screens. You’ll also see a brand new Account screen, on which you’ll be able to manage your ads, change your settings, get support, and much more.

We’ve also redesigned our Ad screen to introduce larger photos, structured content that’s easier to browse through, and greater consistency and clarity between ads.

Apr 05
2019
Version 2.18.4.1800-us

In this update, we’ve improved the reliability and user-friendliness of a few key areas of our app.

When you next sign in or register, we'll ask if you want to save your email and password. It's a new feature from Google called SmartLock. Saving takes just one tap and it’ll mean you won't need to remember them when you’re next searching for a room/flatmate. We’ve also reduced the size of our app, so it’ll take less time to update or reinstall.

We'd love to hear your thoughts on these changes.
