Zillow.com launches Android app


In the hopeful-timing department -- the real estate market traditionally busts open in the spring -- Zillow.com has launched the Zillow Android App, delivering data on 95 million U.S. properties literally into the palms of cell-phone users' hands.

Capitalizing on the success of the Zillow iPhone App, which posted almost 1 million downloads over the last 10 months, according to Zillow, the free Android application offers similar features to that system, plus new ones unique to this app.
