First For iPhone, Now For Android: Rakuten Releases Official App [E-Commerce]


The smartphone revolution Japan is seeing can’t be ignored by Rakuten, the country’s biggest online mall. After having released a special shopping app for the iPhone in February, Rakuten just released a counterpart for Android.

Rakuten says there are two things especially worth mentioning about their new app:

  1. the widget that helps users to access certain functions directly from the Android home screen
  2. the scan feature: scan a barcode on a given product and jump to the product’s page on Rakuten Ichiba

The Rakuten Android app can be downloaded for free here.
