Don’t you wish there was one place to go to get personalized shopping advice and access to thousands of brands?
Actually that place exists, and now you can access it on your phone!
If you have been following this blog you know I utilize a great tool called Shopcade to browse through thousands of brands to find the best pieces for every trend. Since its inception Shopcade has been a computer based platform but this week the company debuted the first version of its iPhone app at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.
If you have used Shopcade you probably think that a mobile app would be a great idea but a tough one to pull off with all the data, images, and animation the site contains. The first version of the iPhone app is actually very smooth, loading your feed quickly without crashing (hello Tumblr app).
So if you love to shop, get great deals, and win prizes but don’t use an actual computer too much now is your chance to get in on the action.
One of the biggest draws of Shopcade is its personalization. Based on the brands you like and shop and the users you follow and interact with your feed is populated with items that will align with your interests and style! So you don’t even have to browse for the right outfit, there is a great chance it will find you!
Like the original the mobile version of Shopcade allows you to create lists of products you want in whatever way you want to organize them. Above are two of my most recent lists showing the broad range of products available on Shopcade– its not just for fashion freaks like me!
The mobile app lets you quickly and easily navigate through millions of products from thousands of brands. You can use the search function to look for something general like “black dress” and sort it by brand, merchant, most popular, latest arrivals, and price. If you just want to browse you can look through the general category, brand, or merchant as well.
When you select an item you can do a few things with it; shop it right away, ‘want’ it and add it to a list, or share it on Facebook or Twitter.
You can do just about everything with the app you can do with the computer platform save for a few details that will likely be integrated into future updates and versions.
There are many reasons to join Shopcade even if you aren’t super into fashion.
Shopcade lets you browse through products and create lists as well as earn points for interacting with the community that can be redeemed for free rewards. You also have access to exclusive deals to a number of merchants available only to Shopcade users. In addition you also earn cashback for every purchase you make, or someone else makes from your Shopcade. All that coupled with games like ‘Spin and Win’ and the monthly sweepstakes to win free prizes there really isn’t a reason NOT to join!
Signing up and downloading the app is completely free as is earning points, getting rewards and winning prizes.
We all love to get great deals, so what are you waiting for!?
