Spring, the fashion shopping application that launched on iOS several months ago, is now available on Android devices as well. The service isn't focused on social sharing, instead billing itself as an e-commerce and aiming first and foremost to make it easier to shop 700+ men's and women's fashion brands. It has exclusives, sales (sometimes), an easy check-out experience, and it handles customer service for orders instead of directing you to the brands. And this isn't your whim-of-the-day start-up. According to Forbes, Spring has kept a 100% retention on all of its launch brands, is adding more every week, and has now secured $25 Million in funding to grow its business and hire more people beyond its current 45 employees.
On Android, the application is very reminiscent of its iOS origins, but it works well for browsing brands, checking collections curated by fashion editors and influencers, and finally making the purchase with a simple swipe. (Oh how easy it is to spend your money nowadays!) The service only delivers in the US and its continental territories, and accepts Google Wallet among other payment options — Visa and MasterCard for example, but not Paypal or Amazon Payments.
For new Android users, Spring has a $20 discount offer on any first order over $75. It lasts until August 16th, 2015 and works automatically on your first purchase so you have a lot of time to browse the app and pick an item you like if you want to benefit.
