SnapUp Lets You Go Shopping, Track Prices Just By Taking Screenshots On Your iPhone

SnapUp Lets You Go Shopping, Track Prices Just By Taking Screenshots On Your iPhone | MobileWeb | Scoop.it

A new application launching today on the iTunes App Store wants to make mobile shopping – including organizing products you like from multiple stores and receiving price drop notifications – as simple as taking a screenshot on your phone. SnapUp, as the app is called, is able to automatically identify and recognize the products you save as screenshots in your iPhone’s Camera Roll, allowing you to then move those products into lists, keep track of sales and other deals, and then finally buy when the price is right.


“The biggest problem in mobile – from a consumer standpoint – is that there’s no way to bookmark anything,” explains Mehta of the challenges faced when mobile shopping. “In order to bookmark something you need to have it work inside each app, and each app has a different UX [user experience] for bookmarking something or sharing it,” he says.

Wearables At Work Will Reshape The Office

Wearables At Work Will Reshape The Office | MobileWeb | Scoop.it

Salesforce, the maker of online tools for tracking customers and helping employees collaborate, is the latest company to try and capture the buzz around wearable devices, following in the Nike-clad footsteps of Samsung and Apple. Earlier this week, it introducedSalesforce Wear, a set of code libraries to help build apps that connect Salesforce's data with smartwatches, activity trackers, computerized glasses, and other sensor-laden gadgets we wear on our bodies.


The obvious thing to do with this software is build simple notification apps. Meetings get more productive if employees aren’t constantly pulling out their smartphones, and can instead stay in touch with a simple glance at the wrist. But I'm more intrigued by the notion of connecting the world of work to the world of fitness.

Geotargeting drives key brand engagements even when stores are closed

Geotargeting drives key brand engagements even when stores are closed | MobileWeb | Scoop.it

While much of the talk around geofencing has focused on driving foot traffic with an ad delivered to a nearby customer, a growing number of retailers are recognizing opportunities with geofencing after stores close or when a location has shut its doors for good.


The trend points to the growing sophistication of mobile marketing, with brands increasingly looking beyond simple location to take into account other factors that can drive more contextually relevant experiences for consumers. For example, by geofencing stores that have recently shut down, retailer Ashley Stewart hopes to retain customers by driving them to another nearby outlet or to its mobile site.

Google To Go After Amazon By Stepping Up E-Commerce Offerings

Google To Go After Amazon By Stepping Up E-Commerce Offerings | MobileWeb | Scoop.it

Cnet reports that Google wants to challenge Amazon’s dominance in the e-commerce market by expanding the resources of its Google Shopping Express service.


Shopping Express is a service that lets users buy products from local retailers, and delivers them to their doors the same day or next day. It was first announced in March 2013.


Recode was first to release a report detailing Google’s plans to beef up the Shopping Express service by investing as much as $500 million into it. However, Cnet says that number is “quite exaggerated”, according to sources close to Google.

On your way? Routeshare for iPhone lets you share your real-time ETA with a link

On your way? Routeshare for iPhone lets you share your real-time ETA with a link | MobileWeb | Scoop.it

Location’ is a core part of many mobile services these days. Local news, local weather, local restaurants, local hotels… you name it. But GPS and location-based services are perhaps most useful for finding your way from A to B – and letting others see where you are.


While there are a number of location-sharing services out there such as Glympse, Routeshare has just entered the fray with its own take on the concept.

Routeshare for iPhone is more specifically about sharing with another person where you are and how long it will take you to arrive at a specific destination, rather than what route you’re taking. You simply enter a destination, select how frequently you want to display location updates, and hit ‘Start’.

Staring at your smartphone -- or tablet, e-reader or laptop, while we’re at it  -- for too long can lead to tired, itchy, dry eyes, and even blurred vision and headaches. Think zombie eyes and you’re there.
