Mobile Shopping Comes of Age with ShopSavvy
Mobile shopping platform ShopSavvy, which boasts more than 40 million downloads and millions of monthly active users, has announced a new update (version 8) for iOS mobile devices and Android smartphones.
The new version offers up several new features, most notably an all new shopping feed system, featured lists, and improved sharing capabilities thanks to enhanced integrations with Facebook, Google (Gmail) and other social networks.
The shopping feeds and featured lists are what will capture the attention of savvy merchants however. Users' real-time activity streams will now include price alerts, updates from other users, and new additions to store catalogs, while ShopSavvy's featured lists will enable users to identify and follow featured channels and receive updates along with personalized information based on their interests.
“This month’s release marks the first stage of ShopSavvy’s transformation into an integrated platform fueling product discovery for our customers with unmatched product detail and store information,” said John Boyd, CEO and co-founder of ShopSavvy. “ShopSavvy has invested in technology to organize the world’s product information in real time, and these features will enable us to surface this valuable content to our users in new ways -- helping our customers find exactly what they are looking for, as well as discovering brand new products that delight them at each use.”
