Phones and shopping. There’s no better combination than this. Shopping can be very overwhelming at any time of the year but the problem is, with so many apps available you might not know where to start. We can help you with that. Below are some of the best shopping apps which can enhance your shopping experience.
eBay has recently launched its newly updated app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. You ca bid for items or just purchase them directly. But if you’re buying from another country, be sure to consider the shipping costs and the customs/duties. Also its important to check the seller’s reputation and his rating before buying any product and you can directly contact the sellers too regarding information about the specified product.
The online retailing giant has replaced in-person shopping for an increasing number of people. Thanks to ease of use of these apps shopping on your phone is beyond tempting. As for the app itself, Amazon created the perfect mini version of its full-sized version, with a very customer friendly UI and a clean presentation style for search results and item profiles.
A free app, available for iOS and Android phones, it lets you collect reward points if you check into select retailers (such as Target, Best Buy, Macy’s, and more). These reward points called kicks, can be used to redeem for rewards like gift cards and movie vouchers. Walking into stores is no big thing for most of us, and Shopkick gets you rewards just for doing that.
A free app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices, Groupon delivers deals and coupons to your phone or tablet. Many of the products and services can be gifted to loved ones in form of gift vouchers. After downloading the Groupon app and signing in, you can buy and redeem Groupon deals and track your purchased vouchers.
The newest shopping ap out there is Bestie Shopping. It is an app and website that might best be described as “Instagram for products.” You can subscribe to feeds from people who have similar tastes, you can see photos and descriptions of products that matter to you, and tap to purchase the item online. Along with commenting on the products and sharing with your followers, Bestie also provides coupons and discounts on the products.
ShopSavvy gives the ability for shoppers to scan barcodes or search for an item in order to look up the best prices at top retailers and shops. ShopSavvy uses your smartphone’s camera by letting you scan barcodes of products. Within a while you’ll see how much the same product costs online or at a nearby store. It also includes the option for directions to the stores that have the product cheaper. You can purchase the product online as well.
Google Shopper, a free app for Android and iOS alerts you to nearby offers, shows deals of the day, lets you scan barcodes to learn more about products, lets you search for products via voice input, and delivers detailed product information. The only thing you can’t do is actually buy products from the app.
