One of the best things about apartment hunting in the digital age is that you can do it anywhere. Moving is always going to be a stressful, time-consuming activity, but at least you’ll have some extra tools to help you along the way. Android owners are especially lucky when it comes to apartment hunting on the go. Put these five apps on your home screen for a more successful search.

1. Apartments by ForRent.com

Take a tour of Chicago apartments from ForRent.com during your lunch break. A GPS-powered apartment listing app maps out more than 50,000 properties in over 190 markets across the U.S. Users can view both picture galleries and video tours of nearby listings or read through detailed descriptions and floor plans. You can even narrow your search according to type: apartment, rental house, condo, townhouse, efficiency, loft or duplex. Save time by looking only for listings with specific amenities, pet-friendly features and community enhancements.

2. Walk Score

Whether you just don’t have a set of wheels yet, or you’re trying to curb your carbon footprint, Walk Score is an app that instantly ranks prospective neighborhoods based completely on walk-ability. Along with a comprehensive score, users can browse through photos of nearby parks, shops, restaurants and other local places of interest. The app even allows you to share locations, so you can stay on the same page with your roomie, family or other co-habitator. To earn the title of “Neighborhood Expert,” you can add your own local photos. (Available at WalkScore.com)

3. My Move

So, if you don’t have a posse full of bodybuilding men with lots of free time, you might have to consider the possibility of hiring movers. My Move is a great app for finding reliable movers near you. You can browse moving reviews and ratings for movers from the U.S. to Canada, and even look up the licensing information of a specific company. An interactive moving checklist and notes feature ensures that you stay on top of your moving game. (Available at the Google Play store)

4. Localicious

Localicious is the “app of all trades” when it comes to adapting to your new place, so you don’t have to feel like such a stranger. The app features 21 million businesses in more than 80,000 neighborhoods across the country. Use the app to explore real neighborhoods in depth, including tips from residents themselves. View menus of restaurants and check out pricing information at local salons and spas. You can even search by category, which includes the usual suspects: restaurants and bars, but also everything from doctor’s offices to banks. (Available at the Google Play store)

5. Sex Offender Search

The ability to look at crime rates is great, but how can you be sure your new neighborhood is safe? Sex Offender Search is one of the most widely downloaded apps in the country. With GPS capabilities, Sex Offender Search can be used while touring an apartment, visiting a nearby school, or even exploring nearby areas. You can even set up alerts so you’re informed by email and/or text message when new offender activity comes up in your area. If you meet a suspicious character, you can also look up his or her record with the app’s convenient search engine feature. (Available at the Google Play store)
