Making payments just got a little easier for owners of an Android phone with the news that PayPal has introduced its app in the Android Market.

The e-commerce business says that the app gives users easy access to many of its popular features.

The eBay subsidiary also stresses that for those worried about security, it uses the same technology and safeguards that they have for the web client.

Some of the features include:

  • Direct integration with the contact list – Users select a name from contacts to make a payment
  • Recent history – A smartphone can be used to look at transactions over the last couple of months
  • Balance checks – balances in any of the currencies held can be shown
