Online accommodation and rental site, Airbnb finally ventured into the smartphone arena with their new application for Android devices. For those not in the know, Airbnb is a community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book accommodations around the world, and now it is possible from a mobile phone, too. Whether it’s an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, anywhere on Earth. The site did have a few safety problems in the past, but that hasn't deterred them, and they are still going strong.
