Shopping on an iPhone is hardly a one-off or freak occurrence. Many merchant websites have fixed their responsive websites or mobile websites so that it is both easy and convenient to shop with an iPhone. Most difficulty comes from compatibility issues where you cannot see the photos correctly or where the checkout is fiddly. The five iPhone apps for shopping listed here are really great apps for shopping as they are correctly optimized and they are powered by companies that have a nice range of things you can buy (or that you may be interested in buying). The list is in no particular order as all five shops are pretty different from each other.
They do run well known shopping app that is able to save you money because it is known for saving people money. Merchants will work to get themselves onto the directory so that they can sell their goods through the app. In return, this company will ask that the merchant gives some sort of price break.
The Groupon app works for businesses in over seventy cities at the moment, and has a lot of price breaks and discounts for the average online shopper. The range and pull of its app is also laudable. You are able to get discounts on things that are location based such as restaurants and haircuts, plus you may get discounts on online goods that are sent through the post. As a matter of fact this app can be the best in iPhone apps for shopping.
It would be pretty dumb for a website as big as Amazon to ignore something such as mobile shopping. They do have their own app for mobile shopping because it makes the whole process a little easier for the user than them going through a mobile browser. The app has little convenience factors such as how your username is already logged in and how you can have it sign you in automatically.
There is also a scary feature where you can take a photo of a product and there is a chance that Amazon will locate it for you in its own inventory so that you can see how much it would cost you on Amazon. You can also use your wish lists and other well-known Amazon features, which includes being allowed access to some of your account functions that you may be used to from desktop use.
This is an app that was created by eBay. It is a free app that you can use as a barcode scanner. You line up your camera with the barcode and take a photo. It then reads the barcode and gives you comparisons for prices based on the product you scanned. It is good because it does not mess up the picture if you have a shaky hand or if you take the image in a rush.
It seems pretty good at picking up the lines and correctly identifying the product you want to research. It shows comparisons from a number of online outlets so that you can get the better prices for your products. It is very handy if you need to restock on certain items and you still have the product packaging with you. It may also be used if you are shopping in real life and you want to check the online prices to see if the store prices are lower. It will show you top coupons on that day.
This is an app that helps you to shop in the real world. It allows you to take a photo of an item with a graphical front. The most commonly recognized ones by the app are CDs, video games and DVDs. You take a photo of them and it brings up a user review of them, and tells you where they may be purchased online and where they may be purchased in local stores.
You can also see information about things that are not commonly know in the mainstream media. It also has a barcode scanner that you can use too, which is used by taking a photo of the barcode. The app is free and it is a great little accessory when you are shopping in real stores as oppose to when you are shopping online. It is also handy if your friend or family member has something that you want to buy.
This is an app that you can use to see what product testing has been done on the products you are about to buy. You can see ratings on a massive range of items from baby items to electronic goods. It is mostly for store shopping which means things such as cars are not featured. It is a big reviewing app that lets you know what you should and shouldn’t buy.
