TORONTO, Aug. 2, 2012 /CNW/ - Today, Kijiji, Canada's most popular free, local classifieds site, officially unveiled its Android application to help Canadians find or post classifieds listings on the go.
With the new Kijiji application, users can now search local classified ads, reply to listings, and post ads with just a few simple taps. The design of the Kijiji Android app makes it easy to buy or sell anything, find a job, adopt a pet, rent an apartment, find a local service, and do so much more on the go.
"Kijiji users are already viewing approximately 200 listings per second and replying to nearly 100 million ads each year," said Vikram Kewalramani, senior product manager, Kijiji Canada.

The app has already been installed by nearly 24,000 Canadians.
