Ryan Kim from GigOm has the scoop in a post title, “ShopSavvy brings instant scan and buy to mobile shoppers.” The big news in ShopSavvy 5 (available both on iOS and Android) is our new wallet feature. We have built adapters that allow for ‘one tap’ purchasing from online retailers like Barnes & Noble and Buy.com. Think Amazon one-click for any retailer on mobile – i.e. one-tap.
We have built adapters for 49 retailers to date and we expect to bring on two to three retailers each week until 2012. Bigger retailers currently live are: Barnes & Noble, Buy.com, Toys ‘R Us, Babies ‘R Us, Radio Shack, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sports Authority, Ace Hardware. Coming soon: Target and Walmart.
Here is an overview of ShopSavvy from me:
Finally, there is also an unannounced ‘beta feature’ in ShopSavvy 5. We aren’t going to publicize it until after Christmas, but power users should be pretty excited when they find it.
