Cars.com iPhone application awarded

Cars.com honored for iPhone appBy Tucker Harrington

It was recently announced that Cars.com, an online resource for buying and selling new and used cars, has been awarded with the MarCom Platinum Award for its iPhone application. The application helps potential car buyers with finding information about various makes and models of available vehicles, provides the user with a financial tool to calculate monthly payments and shows expert reviews.

"Winning a Platinum Award for our app for iPhone is a great achievement for Cars.com and is a testament to our work to bring consumers the tools they need to shop confidently when they need them," said Sharon Knitter, Senior Director of Mobile at Cars.com. "This award recognizes our increased prominence in the mobile space and our dedication to car shoppers – constantly seeking new and innovative ways to make their experience even better."

The application has been downloaded more than a million times since its establishment in February 2010.

The site has been no stranger to awards, as it was recently named the "Best Overall Customer Experience" by Keynote Systems.
