6 Cool Little Shopping Apps You Need To Download For Your iPad
What do you use your iPad for at the moment? Would you get excited if I told you it’s easy to use it to spend all your money shopping? First you will need to find out about some of the great shopping apps out there, so let’s take a good look at them right now.
Just because it’s easy to buy things online doesn’t mean you won’t ever walk around the shops. What will you do when you see something you love? In the past you would obviously have to buy the product or risk having to go back to the store when you find out it’s not cheaper online, but now you don’t have to. You can use the app to scan any barcode you find in the store and it will search online to find you the best price possible.
A few years ago daily deal websites burst onto the scene and Groupon is definitely the biggest player in the industry. Once you have the app on your iPad you can look through it regularly to find deals with up to 75% off normal retail prices. You might get a little carried away when you find those deals, but don’t worry because you can track everything and you will be reminded when your deals are about to expire.
Even if you don’t buy a lot of things online you will still need to go to the supermarket every week to buy food. It’s an easy way to build shopping lists and you can do it by scanning barcodes when you’re at the supermarket. You can add items to your favorites list and it will help you make a new shopping list quickly every week. If you want a great deal you can also use the coupons on the app to save lots of money.
If you have clothes you want to buy or sell you should test out Poshmark before anything else. Your entire closet can become your storefront because once you’ve taken a photo of everything you want to sell you can upload them to the app. You can also create limited-time deals and it will help to sell your stuff much quicker. If you want to buy something you just need to realize everyone else with great clothes will be able to do the same thing.
When was the last time you browsed Pinterest? They have done a great job of building a platform that allows you to browse beautiful photos of products. Fancy has tried to do the same kind of thing except their platform is a lot more geared towards you buying things. They have recently received a lot of investment and they will become even bigger within a few years. At the moment there is a feature where you get sent a box of goodies for less than 50$ per month.
If you work from your iPad there is a good chance you’ve spent a lot of time in Starbucks. It’s great working from a coffee shop instead of a quiet room inside your home. Luckily you don’t even need to take your wallet with you because you can pay for your coffee using the Starbucks app. They might have been the first large company to come out with this feature, but you will see a lot of other companies allowing the same thing in a few years.
Keep an eye out for more
I hope you’ve found most of these apps tempting, but even if they’re not what you are looking for there are thousands more out there. Once you see how amazing they are you’ll no doubt realize mobile shopping is going to become absolutely massive in the next few years.
