SAN DIEGO – April 28, 2015 – fypio, the smart and fun way to discover, collect and share your perfect home, is proud to announce it has been honored in the category for Best Lifestyle Mobile App in the 19th Annual Webby Awards. Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet.

Fypio is real estate for the 21st century, and lets home hunters visualize and plan a new life in their perfect place. The free app provides a personalized experience tailored to users distinct needs and tastes because it understands what is truly important in their lives.

“Honorees like fypio are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the almost 13,000 entries we received this year.”

Fypio’s unique approach to search and discovery appeals not only to homebuyers but also to dreamers’, homeowners, realtors, and design enthusiasts alike.

Picture couples sharing photos and “discussing” kitchens they love while planning and envisioning their next home renovation, or creating a shopping list of must have’s in their new dream home and sharing those with their realtor, friends and family. Homeowners curious about what flooring the neighbor down the street installed before listing their house, keeping in touch with what’s going on in their neighborhood…or just simply looking for design inspiration for their next DIY project. Fypio’s expert posts are perfect for homebuyers looking to tour a new neighborhood before calling it home. And of course no realtor should go without installing the app—it’s the perfect way to understand, communicate and share with clients.

“As a real estate broker, the fypio technology offers an incredibly exciting opportunity.  In fact, I’ve rebranded and retooled my brokerage to leverage the social/mobile search, shop and share platform to better serve my clients and grow my business,” says Monu Singh, a broker with fypio.

Fypio is currently available in San Diego county and the San Francisco Bay Area, with plans to expand to Los Angeles in the coming weeks. The free app is available for download on the iTunes App Store. For more information about the app visit http://www.fyp.io, and connect on Twitter and Facebook.
