Shopping apps are a major business, and a proven asset to the app store. Whether store specific or a deal finder, a good one can turn any smartphone into a valuable money saving tool. That is where Flipp comes in.
Flipp, by Wishabi Inc., promises savings in your pocket by allowing you to view local store sale flyers in your area. Simply enter your zip code or let the app access your location to pull up store circulars. Add the stores you are most interested in to your favorites by tapping the heart icon. Browse sale items and tap the items you would like to add to your clippings area to save them. Then use the innovative discount filter to easily find the biggest sales with a simple slide.
When first using the app, I was very impressed by the overall design. Very clean, well put together, and stylish. Flipp gave a thorough tour of all of its features right off the bat, making it super easy to use. Initially when I put in my zip code, my results turned up 94 flyers in my area. Quite a few to flip through. I recommend marking the store flyers that are your favorites to filter the clutter and get to what you are really looking for. These are kept in a separate area, so you can refer back to the others whenever you like. Or if you know what you want, you can also browse by category for a more precise look.
My favorite feature was the discount slider. When you drag the discount slider, it automatically highlights deals in the specific flyer with the matching percentage off discount. If you want to see only the biggest discounted items, just slide it all the way to the right. Very helpful when you want to browse for only the biggest bargains. The search function allows you to search for a particular store or item within the flyers. Great for planning shopping trips for big weekends coming up like Black Friday and other holiday sales. Here is the entire description:
