When first setting up ShopSavvy, I was able to sign in with my Facebook to create a profile. The app then asked me shopping preference questions like what stores I would like to follow and products I was interested in. My answers helped create a more specific shopping profile geared to what I would be using the app for. The app is set up with an Explore and Store area along with a News feed to check on the stores and products in my preference. I could also see what others are interested in by adding my friends through Facebook, Gmail, text message and email. All in all a very thorough and organized shopping experience.
ShopSavvy Classic has made an all in one shopping experience that fits in the palm of your hand. It is practical, social and just down right handy. All of this for the low low price of free. It is available in the App Store and is compatible for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
