We’re pretty excited here at Newdigs.  We’ve got lots of things cookin’, with some further announcements forthcoming.  That said, the most immediate topic is our new look and feel!  We hope you like it, but please be warned, there’s still some dust in the corners to clean up.  We’ve got some database work to do and, although we’ll be working as fast as possible, you might bump into bugs.  If you do, feel free to contact us at our /support page.

Thanks, and keep checking back for more updates!

The Newdigs crew, for the last 14 weeks, has been participating in High Tech Rochester‘s Launchpad business accelerator. It’s been an extremely rough process on us (which is good!), but we’ve come the other side stronger, with more knowledge of our market. That said, today is literally the culmination of the program: pitch day.

Come join us and the rest of our Launchpad classmates at pitch day at Geva theatre. Follow this link to register. It’s today at 4PM-7:30PM at Geva Theatre!

WXXI’s Innovation Trail shares the Newdigs story

We are very excited and grateful at Newdigs to have been featured on WXXI’s Innovation Trail, which highlights the budding start up economy in their ‘Company Town’ series. Zack Seward sat down with Ben & Daniel at Newdigs HQ, and talked about Newdigs’ aspirations for the coming months and years. We can’t say enough how jazzed we are to be a part of this movement in our community towards starting businesses and identifying viable products to solve market problems.

We’d really like to hear back from Rochester (and the rest of NY) about your ideas and wishes for apartment search. We’re listening!

Our New Look! – updated

Updated!we’ve put out a big code update. It fixes a majority of the issues on this list, and though there are a couple problems still nagging us (photo upload for listings!), a majority of things are working!

As you might’ve noticed, we’ve had a bit of a facelift at Newdigs.com.  We’ve been hard at work trying to make the site better reflect a bit of our flair, and I think we’ve got it!  That said, you’ll notice a lot of little snags, and a couple of really big ones.  Here’s a not-so-conclusive list that I’ll be editing throughout the period of our update, until they’re all gone:

  • Editing properties / listings is broken.  This should be fixed this weekend.
  • The option to create an account has been removed, and won’t go back up until the listings thing is fixed.
  • Toggling advanced search options won’t modify your search results.
  • Flagging listings (for content, whether questionable or awesome) is broken.

Those are the big issues and they’ll be fixed as soon as we possibly can, from top to bottom.  If you spot any other issues, please feel free to drop us a note using the little “chat” icon nestled on the right side of your page.

- Looking forward to hearing from you all!
