If you’re an iPad owner and have fallen down the craft-filled rabbit hole that is Etsy, you’ll be happy to hear that the popular shopping site has launched a tablet-friendly universal version of its iOS app. More than merely a scaled-up version of the iPhone experience, the iPad app lets you browse handmade and vintage items using a magazine-like layout.

Etsy notes that the app no longer includes seller functionality, so those who run shops on the site will need to rely on Safari for accessing those features from here on out. Also, although the ability to buy and redeem gift cards has been added to the app for iPhone users, it’s still in the works for iPad. Still, for shoppers the refined layout, editorial content, and ease of access to things like friends’ favorite items should be a boon.
