Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — TheFind today announced the launch of TheFind for iPad, making online shopping easier, better and more organized. Designed from the ground up for iPad's large Retina display and multi-touch screen, the app saves people time and money by searching across every online store, locating all of the current prices on even the hardest to find items, browsing rich imagery and automatically filtering results based on individual preferences.
Instantly personal search results are driven by your preferences as expressed through Facebook likes, search activity on TheFind and email transaction receipts via Slice. Streamlined checkout means that any product can be easily purchased from any online store from within the app. Email receipts, again from any store, allow the app to keep track of all your online orders, shipments, return windows and more, giving each of us a complete picture of our eCommerce selves.
Launch of TheFind App follows closely the release of data from TheFind that shows both strong demand for a better iPad shopping experience, coupled with enormous growth in both iPad ownership and the use of these devices as a preferred shopping platform.
“With iPads rapidly proliferating across America, they are poised to become the dominant device for at-home shopping within the next two-to-three years,” said Siva Kumar, CEO of TheFind. “Shopping stands out on the iPad as it is just about the only core segment of media consumption where most of the activity still happens in a browser, not an app. We think it’s simply a matter of time before something very much like TheFind for iPad, which aggregates across all stores, simplifies checkout and helps people manage their online spend, becomes a daily shopping habit for millions of online consumers.”
TheFind for iPad App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or http://www.AppStore.com.
