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

Not sure how to vote, but an app is essential marketing. The App ikon would appear on the phone screen as a permanent advertisement, a bit like the Amazon app...so easy. No signing in, no filling in forms.
oh and by the way, it's really irritating when you are trying to write a listing and press the 'back' button and everything you have added disappears. I find it so irritating that i just don't bother retyping and leave the web page. the sellers need to be as engaged with the process as the buyers to keep the turnover fresh and lively.
