It can be tough to find the right place to call your next home, and finding it before it gets snapped up by another renter can be even tougher. In a competitive market, available apartments come and go in a moment’s notice, and a rental open house can feel more like a face-off with other renters than a tour of the space.

Fortunately, there are quite a few apps to help you on your apartment hunt.

The online apartment listing industry is competing to provide more accurate availabilities and better search options, which benefits renters as more useful information becomes available with a tap of a finger. As rental apps evolve, they are not only making it easier to find available apartments, but they’re also providing renters’ financial information to potential landlords and allowing tenants to pay rent once a lease has been signed.

Here are 10 popular rental apps you can use to find your next apartment available on both iOS and Android:

Zillow Rentals.
Trulia Rentals.
Apartment List.
Apartments by Apartment Guide.
Apartment Finder.

The app’s signature feature still works, allowing you to take a photo of a home with a “for rent” sign and the app will find the active listing for you to check out the details.
