Mobile-savvy commuters can now access the popular Zipcar car-sharing service right from their Android mobile devices. Just released this past week, the new Zipcar app for Android is as useful as its iOS counterpart, as it enables Zipcar members to map out, reserve, unlock, and even honk the horn of their Zipcar of choice. Non-members can still download and browse nearby inventory, but can't reserve, lock, or, sadly, honk any of the vehicles.

While the app appears to be fully functioning, it's important to note that it is still officially in beta, which means users may run into a few bugs. However, Android-wielding Zipsters should still be happy with the considerable convenience the app offers.
