App Review: Window shopping just got cooler
Sweet Couch is a new app that allows you to window shop with your friends right from your smart phone as well as chat about the latest products and trends in the market
Whether you are shopping online or offline, deciding on which product to buy can be a difficult task, at times. Perhaps that’s why you always drag a friend along. But what if they are out of town, and you need advice? Try Sweet Couch, a new app that allows you to window-shop with friends online.
The app (also available as a web service) lists products across categories — right from shoes and clothing to electronics, home appliances, home decor and furniture. All you need to do is download the app from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, sign up, add a few trusted friends via WhatsApp (and make them download the app as well) and you are ready to go.
The app has been designed in a way to automatically offer suggestions of similar products, thus, offering better choices. We found this feature often to the point and very helpful.
Browse through their collection of products, if you like something and need help in deciding, just ping your friend about it. There’s no need to take pictures or screen shots. Your friend will automatically be notified about the product. And if your friends are not available at the moment, you can also ask questions or discuss the product details with Sweet Couch experts.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to sort the products out; a feature we feel would have been very useful. But despite that it’s a great way to shop online. However, you cannot buy products from Sweet Couch. When you click on buy, it will take you to the original page of the product for transaction. Sweet Couch aggregates the products and helps you share and discuss it with friends. Readers are advised to take precaution while making online payments on any website accessed via Sweet Couch.
Available on: Google Play Store and Apple App store
