What can honest Abe get you? Well, if you’ve got $5 and access to the Fiverr Marketplace, alot! After opening on iOS (only) in December, Fiverr is making its way to Android now. If you haven’t heard of Fiverr before, it’s an interesting concept that helps link up buyers and sellers in the so-called “gig economy” to perform services starting at just $5 each. When browsing Fiverr, for example, you may see someone offering to do a portrait sketch of you, sing happy birthday in a funny way to a friend, or even test out your new Android app for just $5.
Like every other marketplace, expect to see a wide range of products and services. You’d be surprised. You’ll likely browse this as a novelty at first, but you’ll invariably find something and think of it next time. Else, there’s always craigslist.
The Android app is a perfect companion to the desktop version of the service, letting you browse through available gigs in a more manageable layout made for Android phones.
