Roommate Matching App Integrates Users’ Social Network as a Safe and Transparent Alternative to Craigslist
The Room Ring, the free social roommate matching service that unveiled its website in October, 2015, announced today the launch of its highly anticipated iOS app in the iTunes App Store. The company has also revealed a new look to the website with several new features.
The Room Ring is unlike any other roommate matching website or app in allowing users to see which mutual Facebook friends they share with other users, much like LinkedIn’s 1st degree connections. As opposed to a glorified Craigslist, The Room Ring is a socially integrated service that finds users compatible roommates whether they are listing a vacant room for rent, looking for a room or sublet, or looking for a roommate with whom to start an apartment search. By having users authenticate through Facebook, The Room Ring enables roommate and apartment seekers to vet potential roommates through their mutual friends. The built-in messenger allows users to connect and communicate safely and efficiently. The process is fast, transparent and fun to use.
“We have personally experienced the struggle of finding compatible roommates in a pinch and are confident that we have found the solution with The Room Ring. We plan to go above and beyond and offer several other exciting features to the website and app in addition to expanding to other major U.S. cities by this Fall,” said Josie Hubschman, Co-Founder and COO of The Room Ring.
Among the many new features available on The Room Ring app and website, users will find an expansive partnership program, which offers users exclusive deals and rates on anything from interior design to movers and storage and meal and alcohol delivery.
