HipmunkTravel and hotel search service Hipmunk launched a new mobile app for Android devices today.

Much like Hipmunk’s website, the Android app aggregates ticket fares from airlines and allows people to sort them by time, price, flight duration, airline as well as “agony,” Hipmunk’s algorithm for discovering the most enjoyable flights.

Similar to its iPhone app, Hipmunk for Android’s visual interface optimizes the travel search experience for a mobile device without sacrificing any of the key features that makes the service so desirable to use.

The app also lets you see which flights have Wi-Fi access, lets you save searches and sends you directly to an airline’s website or third-party travel service to book your tickets.

Hipmunk faces competition on the Android Market from competitors like Travelocity and Kayak.

Co-founded by Adam Goldstein and Steve Huffman in 2010, the San Francisco-based startup has $5.2 million total funding from Ignition Partners, Y-Combinator and a handful of angel investors. The company has a total of 10 employees, including Hipmunk Senior programmer Christopher Slowe, formerly of Reddit.
