It has been a long time coming, but if you are an ardent follower of interior design or would love to browse through endless array of photos that portray beautiful homes, stunning décor and amazing furnishings from designers across the globe (and let’s face it, who wouldn’t!), then having Houzz come over on to the Android platform is something you have been anxiously waiting. The wait is now over with the company bringing its acclaimed app for Android users and it is available on Google Play for download.
The app has been highly successful in the iOS arena with Apple users already downloading it over 5 million times and its usage increasing by 400 percent in the last year or so. The platform offered by Houzz really does provide designers reach clients in a more direct fashion and consumers and designer enthusiasts can now not only share their own creations and home images, but can also contact interior designers and architects after seeing their work online. The interface sports over 500 million images and has acquired a perfect 5-star rating on Apple’s App Store.
Houzz says that 40 percent of its users already access the site from both iPhone and iPad devices and that percentage is expected to grow in the next few years. Considering the fact that there will be over 8 billion handheld devices by 2013, catering to the needs of the mobile platform is indeed a smart choice and Houzz is most likely to find similar success on the Android platform considering its vast resource base.
