Being fashion savvy in the ‘noughties’ exudes an unlikely mishmash of cultures. With modern methods such as online shopping more popular than ever before, contrastingly, the demand for modern produce is less sought after than you would imagine, with ‘vintage’ trends making a strong comeback of late. Whatever your style, the following apps are tried and tested to assist you in your purchasing quests, from the mundane to the bizarre!
1.Pocket auctions for eBay
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Simple, clear-cut and efficient, allowing eBay addicts to shop, bid and check current auctions in real time, any time of day! Somewhat more user friendly/compatible than the ebay mobile app which is aimed specifically at android phones.
Compare prices, browse and buy – all while on the go! With all the classic features of the online store including access to wishlists and shopping cart, Amazon mobile is a must have for serious online shoppers! Its also great for gift buying, if you’ve got friends with hen parties abroad then use it to spy those great bargains so you can splurge when you get there!
3. Good Guide
Currently only available for use in the US, the Good Guide app brings a whole new dimension to virtual shopping. Including a barcode scanner, ratings and a wealth of useful information on how to shop eco-consciously, although far from perfect in its early stages, an app of this kind has tons of potential thus is definitely one to watch out for in the future.
4. Card Star
Fantastic plastic managing! By scanning the bar codes of your favorite store loyalty cards, the idea is that the barcode will then be saved onto your mobile device, making it more convenient and accessible, cutting out the burden of attempting to carry and locate each individual card for every separate purchase you make. Clever, no? We’re inclined to agree. With other great features such as access to offers and promotions plus a contact and store locator, the app is great in theory if not for the convenience factor alone. However, as it currently stands, Card Star has a long way to go, as many cards/bar codes are not yet supported.
5. Find Chocolate!
Quite simply a necessity for chocoholics worldwide! The premise of the app is quite simple: craving chocolate? Find it, fast!By tracking your current location in order to generate a list of nearby chocolate shops, the app makes use of maps and local info to help pave the way for chocolate lovers everywhere. In a word? Genius.
So ladies, if you’re serious about your retail therapy habit, these little gems are sure to come in handy. From food fanatics to fashion junkies; take your pick, choose wisely, and prepare to shop ‘til you drop!
