Staying at a hotel is so 2009. Airbnb has made it easy for landlords to put rooms and entire properties up for rent, and easy for rentors to find a place to stay. And today, we now have an Airbnb Android app.
The Airbnb Android app is nicely done, with loads of photos and easy access to property descriptions. There's a video section as well, and integration with Google Maps makes it easy to see exactly where you're staying.
Airbnb's also offered up a "featured" section, showing you the service's top 40 properties, and the best of cities such as Austin, Texas; Paris, New York, beach locations, Los Angeles and others.
Sign into your account, and you've got easy access to upcoming rentals (or properties that you're renting out). Upcoming stays are beautifully displayed, with location, duration and contact information for the host.
We're not quite sure we want to go so far as to book a stay from our phones -- we're a little too anal for that. But the Airbnb Android app is a great way to browse listings, and a great way to keep up with your upcoming stays. It's quickly earned a spot in our app drawer.
We've got more screen shots and download links after the break.
