Black Friday is upon us and the official Christmas shopping season has begun. Shopping is on everyone’s mind today and social media has been the underlying theme for all of 2009, so it makes sense to have a look at the newest social shopping app on the market.
After two months of beta testing, Vancouver’s Adarsh Pallian of Social Crowd Ventures has launched JustBought.It – what he claims is one of the only Twitter/Facebook/iPhone/Andriod connected social shopping apps out there. JustBought.It helps you find cool items by connecting you with people with similar taste and style and recommending stores tailored to you.
With JustBought.It shopping gets a whole lot more social as you have the ability to poll your Twitter and Facebook friends for a second opinion on that new shirt you’re considering using their free iPhone app. Have no friends? Don’t worry – there’s an app for that. Walk into a store and see what other’s have purchased there using JustBought.It’s augmented reality app on your Android phone.
For those obsesssed with Twitter Lists, you’re going to love creating shopping lists on JustBought.It. Oprah’s popular “Favorite Things” episode has been cancelled this year, so why not create your own list and tweet away. With JustBought.It you can showcase your favorite brands and shopping discoveries on your profile and share them with others.
