Barclays are looking for 10 Mumsnetters who are currently looking to buy a house to try their Homeowner app and film their feedback.

Here’s what Barclays say, “We’ve designed our Homeowner app to make our customer’s lives easier – with one of the UK’s largest property databases at your fingertips, alongside tools to calculate moving costs and direct access to estate agents and mortgage specialists.
This is a great opportunity to put this to the test & receive your feedback on what works and what we can improve upon - so that you can help us do this even better in the future.”

Mumsnetters will be given the task to download the Barclays Homeowner app and use it whilst house hunting. Mumsnetters will have to capture their experience on camera. Selected Mumsnetters will need to send their video footage to MNHQ. We will then create a montage of everyone’s videos which Barclays will use on their website and social media accounts.

For more information on the Homeowner App and its full T&Cs and features, go to

If you’d like to take part, we're looking for Mumsnetters who:
-Have a smart phone (with 3G capability) so they can download Barclays Homeowner app and use it on the move. Please note, charges from your provider may apply here.
-Are currently house hunting and looking to buy
-Available to capture the footage and send it to MNHQ between 22nd December and 9th January.
Testers do not necessarily need to be a Barclays customer to take part.

If you’re interested, please sign up here. Entries to take part must be submitted by 18th December.

Selected Mumsnetters will be required to take video footage of themselves as well as leave feedback on a thread onsite. Mumsnetters who complete both tasks will be sent a £30 Love2Shop voucher and will also be entered into a prize draw to win a £150 Love2Shop voucher!

Thanks and good luck!

When you say 'smartphone' I'm assuming you mean iPhone or Android? I have a Windows phone and most companies don't make apps for that. Happy to be corrected if Barclays have though.

Good luck to anyone who has a new Barclays mortgage- write everything down on conversations, date and name them and keep in touch with them the second they are late on something.

Is MN product testing the new way for companies to get super cheap advertising footage? Film yourself and let Barclays use it all over the country for thirty quid??
