WE NEED A FOLKSY APP!!!For both facebook and mobile devices!
We need a folksy app for mobile devices and for our facebook pages. To keep up with other selling sites we need to have similar options for potential customers. They are not going to buy from us if there is a simpler way to go through an etsy/ebay app and find things from their phones etc It is really falling behind not having this option, these days its strange there's not an app for it! Folksy should be a bigger name within the uk than other selling sites as it is uk based and this would help toward that! Ease of use is everything for customers, i think we need the app options to provide a simple way for customers to view our products
We need to be an equal marketplace to others and this would help make that so
We are currently creating an API for Folksy listings which will allow us to launch an app for sellers. Sellers would then be able to use this on their mobile devices and tablets to list and manage their Folksy orders on Folksy. At this stage the app will be for sellers rather than customers, but all the development work we are doing on Folksy is now in an app-friendly format so that it can be used by app technology in the future.
You can now add Folksy listings to your Facebook page by creating a catalogue on Facebook. We have set up a new data feed page to make this easier. Just add .rss to your whole shop URL (eg https://folksy.com/shops/claregetscrafty.rss) and follow the instructions here https://www.facebook.com/business/help/384041892421495?id=725943027795860
Please Folksy we need the app to be more successful, it will help folksy and all of us who have shops and our customers, I am personal working hard to get the folksy shop name out there, a lot of people haven't even heard of folksy, so please APP APP APP PLEASE
We need an app for Folksy, I don't think Folksy are doing enough to spread the appeal of their website. Etsy has an app! ebay has an app! Get on it!
100% this needs to happen. Imagine the impact of folksy trending on google play store!!
This is long overdue
Gets my vote, could do with both a buyers and sellers app preferably with a windows phone app too and not just the usual iPhone and android variations there is a big market there that we could and should tap into.
I'm just updating my website to make it mobile friendly and am surprised that Folksy is lagging behind other selling platforms -ddefinitely need an app!

Most definitely Folksy needs an App to keep up with the times and the forever changing online marketplace.
Totally the way forward

I joined Folksy because most of my sales on Etsy come from the UK, and I'm UK based. To find that Folksy doesn't have an app in this day and age is, frankly, staggering! Given that the number of sales I make elsewhere via apps is increasing all the time, it concerns me that Folksy is failing to capitalize on a potential source of sales.
