An all-new version of our mobile shopping app was launched today on both iPhone and iPad. New features include redesigned navigation, easier list creation and an overall improved look and feel, as well as enhanced exploratory features to find top products within the ShopSavvy community.
The update gives users a “red carpet experience” by taking them through each of the new features step-by-step. We’ve of course retained ShopSavvy’s core value of helping people save money, but with this redesign we’re entering into the larger product discovery space.
Through this iOS update, iPhone and iPad users can take advantage of ShopSavvy’s many new features, including:
• Categories that give users the ability to see the top trending products within the ShopSavvy community, including books, movies, electronics, video games and more
• Cleaner and simpler navigation that provides easier list viewing, product scanning and searching, history viewing and user profile access
• Larger, more prominent and higher-resolution product images to make browsing even easier
• Improved product and category lists through a user experience enhancement that allows shoppers to easily create, view and update lists by swiping from screen-to-screen and dragging and dropping products into the lists.
We’re dedicated to continually improving the mobile experience for shoppers and helping businesses of all kinds bridge the gap between themselves and their target audiences in new and innovative ways. Let us know what you think of the updated app!
When we were working to develop our partnership with Capital One Deals, we knew it could help change the way consumers see mobile shopping. And users haven’t disappointed. We’re extremely pleased with the feedback on the initiative, not to mention the results.
Capital One Deals gives holders of Capital One Rewards cards $20 on purchases of $40 or more when they use ShopSavvy Wallet. It is unique in the credit card industry as it introduces shoppers to brands during the shopping experience.
It also helps consumers take advantage of ShopSavvy Wallet and make mobile purchases with just one tap.
ShopSavvy Wallet users who scan an item in a store and see a better deal online can purchase it immediately without ever leaving ShopSavvy. Unlike other online shopping systems, ShopSavvy’s neutral search results enable consumers to compare prices from a wide range of retailers.
ShopSavvy and Capital One are proud to offer Capital One Deals through the ShopSavvy Wallet, and both companies are looking forward to making the most of this relationship.
Take a look at the below examples of some deals offered.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we’ve dramatically enhanced ShopSavvy’s user interface and product information to make it simpler than ever to get the information you need, so you can purchase items directly through the app.
All of you smartphone and tablet users are increasingly skipping the store lines and identifying products to purchase via keyword searches. That’s why we’ve updated our app to ensure we’re giving you the information you need. From full-screen product photos to demo videos and community reviews – you now have more details than ever to make your purchasing decisions within the app.
Just one example of the many data enhancements to the shopping app: more than 10,000 videos of men’s and women’s shoes, clothing and accessories in use. Our hope is that this added information will help you feel even more confident making online purchases without ever leaving ShopSavvy.
Some other cool features in the ShopSavvy update include:
Cleaner, easier-to-navigate user interface
More product reviews that are conveniently accessible directly from the product screen
Higher-resolution product photos to give you a thorough understanding of what you’re considering for purchase
Thousands of additional videos to view directly within the product screen
30 percent increase in special deals and offers, a result of ShopSavvy’s partnerships with additional retailers, aggregators and other deal sources such as Fancy, a popular mobile app used to discover, collect and buy from a crowd-curated catalog of goods
The ability to identify new products of interest to you through the “Related Products” functionality
Enhanced option for you to flag incorrect or incomplete data and add prices for local stores that aren’t already listed within the app.
As if ShopSavvy hadn’t already made saving money easier, millions of Android and iOS users will gain a much richer user experience through this update, making it even easier for shoppers to get the product, pricing and additional information they need to make online purchases with confidence. This revamp not only provides unprecedented levels of detail about the products you’re looking to buy, but sets the stage for greatly increased sharing among members of ShopSavvy’s growing shopping community.
Today we released Product Cloud 2.0, the latest iteration of ShopSavvy’s proprietary big-data platform that enables our millions of active users to easily find real-time pricing, inventory, reviews and other information for more than 20 million products. Field testing of top price-comparison apps shows that ShopSavvy consistently displays more local store results as well as online price results and lower prices for a greater variety of products than Amazon Mobile, eBay’s RedLaser, and other major platforms.
Based on a study of 600 random product searches across popular product categories such as consumer electronics, video games, books, movies, home and family, and office products, ShopSavvy outpaced other apps in the number of results displayed. For example, with Product Cloud 2.0 ShopSavvy displayed on average 30 percent more local, in-store offers than RedLaser, as well as almost twice as many online price results. This new back-end update continues our commitment to local commerce and our customers will start to see improvement in results and content immediately.
Innovations like Product Cloud 2.0 bring much more robust connections to ShopSavvy Marketplace, which allows our retailers to enter and manage their inventory, price and store information directly into our mobile marketplace of retailers. We’ve been adding around 150 new retailer accounts each month and Product Cloud 2.0 advances our local store results in particular when our customers want convenience and immediacy of buying locally.
