Belfast Telegraph launches iPhone app for nicarfinder site

Many car buyers across Northern Ireland are used to logging onto nicarfinder. After all, it is Northern Ireland’s biggest used car platform.

But now there’s a new cool way to browse through the many vehicles currently being showcased online.

Nicarfinder is now available via an application and if you own an iPhone you simply download it from Apple’s App Store. Here’s more good news – this download is free. That’s right. You can obtain this download for nothing.

There’s absolutely no charge and from now on you’re not tied to your PC as you can now view nicarfinder anywhere you want to, providing of course, that there’s a mobile signal.

Nicarfinder is so easy to use and navigate through. It allows you to search for cars by make and model, budget and features - you can also search for cars for sale closest to you using GPS built into your iPhone.

Bring up the site on your iPhone and you will see the three search options displayed on screen – ‘Make and Model, ‘Budget’ and ‘Feature.’

Touch ‘Make and Model’ and the names of all manufacturers will be displayed, even those no longer producing vehicles which may help you if you’re searching for something rare and a little bit different. Simply touch the name of the marque you want to view and cars made by your chosen manufacturer will appear.

Searching by ‘Budget’ will bring up vehicles priced within your financial boundaries and with those prices ranging from under £5,000 on up to over £40,000 there’s bound to be a car on nicarfinder that matches your tastes and requirements.

Choosing a ‘Feature’ will display various cars within the category you are most interested in purchasing. You’ll have no fewer than six choices – Expensive Cars, Executive Cars, ‘Classic’ Cars (featuring older and rarer vehicles), Cheap Cars (for bargains), ‘Cars For Under A Grand’ and ‘Family Cars.’

At the bottom of your iPhone screen you’ll see four more features – ‘Q’ Search,’ for quick searches, ‘Dashboard,’ ‘Dealers’ and ‘Member.’

‘Dashboard’ is where to find your saved searches, recent searches, recently viewed and saved vehicles.

Touching ‘Dealers’ brings up a long list of dealerships and this is where you will find dealers located near to where you live. You also have the option of using the ‘A-Z Dealerships in Northern Ireland’ search facility which links you through to all the cars displayed at any dealership of your choosing. This function also enables you to gain directions to your chosen dealer.

The ‘Member’ function is where you can register and log onto nicarfinder using your iPhone and remember that registration is absolutely free.

Nicarfinder, Northern Ireland’s biggest and most viewed car website, gives you access to literally thousands of vehicles and this resource is free for you to use 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
