Three Cheers for Apps: New Etsy for Android

As more people use handheld devices to access Etsy from wherever they are — from the sidewalk to the couch — we want to make sure they’re getting Etsy at its best. Just last week, we released our first Etsy for iPad app, expanding the iOS experience and giving shoppers a fun and tap-friendly way to explore the marketplace. Our Android-using members have been itching for an app of their own (us too!) and today, we’re excited to introduce the new Etsy for Android.

Nearly a quarter of Etsy’s mobile web visitors now come from Android devices all over the world. So we’ve made the app ready to globe-trot — available in English, French, Dutch, and German. And with so many people looking for gifts this time of year, we’ve designed Etsy for Android to be an easy and rewarding way to shop for one-of-a-kind items, whenever the giving mood strikes.

Download Etsy for Android to:

  • Search across the entire marketplace (from 17 million items).
  • Find gifts for him, for her, or maybe yourself.
  • Browse other members’ favorite items and shops.
  • Purchase directly from your phone or tablet.
  • Track your purchases.
  • Contact shops and receive convo notifications.

Head on over to the Google Play Store to download the new Etsy for Android app.

We’re thrilled to now offer three different apps for our members to choose from (Android, iPad, and iPhone), and we’re excited to see what our creative community does with them. Three cheers!
