Polyvore Arrives on Android (Finally)

The Polyvore community up until now has had two things in common. 1) An overwhelming desire to export their style to the world by pinning collages of outfits and accessories to Pinterest and 2) Use of iOs. The style-conscious and largely-female user base of the Polyvore app are as a rule Mac enthusiasts who prefer to compile their sartorial selections using an iPad or iPhone.

The time has arrived, a year-and-a-half after the iOS launch of the app, for Android phone and tablet users to get in on the fun, as Polyvore has finally launched on their operating system.

The new product has a slight air of being rushed to market, reports TechCrunch, with some minor features like the ability to add background embellishments missing from the Android instantiation of the product. Core features however, such as the ability to swipe to browse through sets and products, “like” items that match your interest, build your own sets with the Editor function, innovate on ideas already present in the community and build custom feeds of styles that you "like," are all still present an accounted for.

Apart from expanding its user base to the Android market, Polyvore is also in the midst of a vertical jump as it attempts to expand its purview to home decoration. Android users interested in joining Polyvore's 20 million monthly unique visitors can find the app by visiting the Google Play store.
