XE.gr is Greece's largest ad newspaper and online portal. This app grew in stages - from the award-winning car-and-bike-related "Automoto.gr" to the property search "Property.gr" apps which I had built as stand-alone apps, eventually adding jobs and classified sections, and integrating the suite into one big app. This app is built entirely using native UI and was completed in a surprisingly small amount of time. It remains one of the most-used apps in Greece right now.

News & Awards:

  • xe.gr reached #1 in the Greek iTunes app store (displacing Google’s Chrome :)) for more than a week, stayed in the top 10 for more than 2 months, and continues to be in the top-50 overall.
  • The property.gr app won the prestigious 2011 Hermes Bronze Award in Greece.
  • The automoto.gr app won the prestigious 2010 Hermes Gold Award in Greece.

Integrating and expanding on the award-winning automoto and property apps, the new all-in-one xe.gr features all of Greece’s premier classified and job ads paper sections in one large but efficient app, featuring iCloud integration and optimized for the latest developments in iOS!

From the App Store description:
