.@Zumper allows renters to allow for apartments in a Zapp

Using a mobile app, the rental property portal allows people to apply for apartments. There is an option to pay $10 to send a credit score with your application. 

While not not groundbreaking, as start-ups like Cozy and Radpad have been doing his for a while, the single platform approach by Zumper is interesting. 

Having raised a reported $6.5m of capital earlier this year, the company is well resourced to take on Apartment List as the specialist rental portal. 

The updated app is available for download on the US iTunes App Store. 

Renters can also apply via the Zumper website:
