The Only App You’ll Need for On-The-Go Personalized Search, Barcode Scanning, and In-Store Price Matching Across 500 Million Products and 500K Stores MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — TheFind, the largest personalized shopping search engine in North America, today announced the launch of its new iPhone app. TheFind for iPhone and iPad now features users shopping preferences and personalizes their search results based on users’ Facebook likes and shopping behavior, mirroring the experience from TheFind.com. The app scans in-store barcodes to locate the best prices and highlights price match availability. Users can shop locally by finding products at nearby stores and take advantage of deals at any store across the web. Shoppers can seamlessly shop in-store and continue shopping on their iPad or laptop using TheFind.com at home.
From local stores to online shopping, TheFind’s new iPhone app saves shoppers time and money by connecting them with any brand and product they care about in real-time. TheFind for iPhone and iPad blends traditional shopping and retail technology, allowing consumers to browse the mall while simultaneously hunting for bargains using the app’s comparison shopping and price match features. It not only scans barcodes quickly and accurately, but also identifies the best deals nearby or online.
“As a complement to our web experience and the iPad app, we designed our new iPhone app to change the way consumers shop, giving those who love the in-store shopping experience a tool to locate the best deals on-the-go using TheFind,” said Ramneek Bhasin Vice President and General Manager Mobile for TheFind.
“Our website and apps sync to make it simple for people to find and get price alerts on items they’ve scanned, searched or bookmarked tailored to their personal tastes,” Bhasin continued. “On a 4 inch screen, personalization along with rich imagery of the retina display on iOS 7 is key in delivering just the right results to the user without having them look through screens and screens of data laboriously.”
Additionally, TheFind recently announced it has crossed the one billion search mark. The number of searches on both mobile apps and online web browsers accelerated in the last quarter after TheFind implemented their patented personalized search technology, which is driven by consumers’ online shopping habits.
