Airbnb Launches Photo-centric App for iPads and Android Tablets

Airbnb's app just got a little more travel-friendly.
The company rolled out a new version of the app for iPad and Android tablet users Wednesday, the first time Airbnb has had a dedicated app for larger mobile displays.
Users can browse and book listings, contact hosts, get directions or check for last-minute rentals. Alex Schleifer, Airbnb's design chief, said the look of the image-focused tablet app is meant to be reminiscent of a magazine spread or coffee table book with big glossy photos.
