Etsy Launches Android App

After releasing a new iPad app last week, the DIY crafty social shopping network Etsy has released an new app for Android devices. The Android app, which works on any Android device, lets users shop 17 million items from 800,000 sellers around the world. Users can shop by category, season or Etsy seller. The app includes photos and videos of the many products. It’s available in English, French, Dutch, and German.

The company first got into the app business last November with an iPhone app, which was followed by an iPad app last week. According toTechCrunch, the app passed a million downloads in four months. As of October 2012, Etsy reports that the iPhone app has been downloaded more than 3.5 million times.

On any given day, the site sees 25 percent of its traffic come in from mobile devices. From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, almost 1 in 3 visits to Etsy came from mobile devices.
