Real estate website Zillow.com told WebProNews today it has launched a free Zillow Android application.

The Zillow Android app uses GPS technology to find and follow users on an aerial map, and displays "Zestimate" values, homes for sale, homes for rent and recently-sold data on the homes around them.

Users can also search for homes, even they are not in the vicinity, by tapping the Android platform’s voice search capabilities. By saying an address, neighborhood, ZIP code or city the app will automatically take the user there on the map.

Key features of the Zillow Android app include:

*Home details and historical data on 95 million homes in the U.S.

*Curbside images of homes using Google StreetView

*Multiple photos, home details, and contact information on homes for sale and rent

*Users can filter their home searches by sale price, rental price, number of bedrooms, bathrooms and listing types

"Since the launch of our highly successful  successful Zillow iPhone App, which has been downloaded nearly one million times since April 2009, home shoppers have been asking us to build an app for the Android," said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow chief operating officer. 

"It’s clear that people want access to all of Zillow’s data and information like Zestimates, listing information, and prior sale price while they are out looking at homes or exploring neighborhoods. We saw this as a great opportunity to be on a platform with enormous potential for real estate and home shopping."
