Web2Carz.com Releases Dealer Inventory Listing Application for the iPhone

March 02, 2009

HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. – Web2Carz.com Ltd. announced Monday the release of the first fully integrated auto dealer inventory listing application for the iPhone.

Unlike other auto classified listing applications, the Web2Carz iPhone application has been designed to run natively on the iPhone and the iPod Touch platforms. With its intuitive navigation and streamlined design, iPhone users can search a national database of cars for sale, view images, see detailed listings for each car, read CARFAX reports, and much more.

Consumers can quickly contact a dealer about a vehicle listing by using the iPhone one-touch call feature or sending an inquiry right from the Web2Carz application. Auto dealers can post their inventory to Web2Carz.com and the iPhone application at no charge and receive free sales leads. To date over 500 dealers have inventory listed.

“Web2Carz.com continues to develop the latest in technology to help our auto dealers sell more cars while improving the bottom line. The best thing about the Web2Carz iPhone application is that we are exposing the dealer’s inventory to a whole new audience for free. It’s 100 percent free Internet advertising. Dealers can post their inventory and receive free sales leads with no setup fee, no monthly fee, and no limit on images. It’s a win-win proposition,” said Alex Bravy, Web2Carz co-founder.

The iPhone application has been set up for complete ease-of-use and one click navigation. Key features of the application include:

- Search by make and model

- Search within a Zip code and distance range or use current location (optional)

- Sort by price, year or mileage

- Filter by max price and/or max mileage

- Auto save of search criteria

- Tap the CARFAX ™ logo to view a car history report

- Tap the phone number to call the seller

- Auto save of user contact information

The approximately 1.3 million iPhone users nationwide tend to use their handheld device more than others to access the Internet. In fact, a recent study found that nearly 85 percent of iPhone purchasers regularly use their handheld device to access content on the web.

The beta version of the Web2Carz iPhone application was demonstrated at the 2009 NADA show and convention in New Orleans, January 24-27, at the Web2Carz.com booth and received a very positive response from the dealer community as well as industry insiders. The link to the application for iPhone users is here. (Users need to have iTunes for this link to work). For more information call 847-780-4821 or visit
