The iPhone version of the application has been downloaded more than 1 million times since it debuted last April, Zillow chief operating officer, Spencer Rascoff, said in the release.

The Android version uses GPS to find and follow users’ location and displays Google Street View images of houses, along with sales information and estimated values for 95 million homes in the U.S. It also takes advantage of Android’s voice search capability, so users can say an address, neighborhood, Zip code or city to call up that map location.

Zillow is offering the Android app free through the Android Market.
