Reinvent Your Shopping Experience with Your Phone

During a recent stroll through Westfield of downtown San Francisco, I wanted to find the best price for a blush applicator. With so many cosmetics counter options in this galleria and Union Square, I wanted to avoid hitting every shop. So I took advantage of my new iPhone application, Where to Shop. It’s a product / store finder that uses GPS to locate whatever you’re shopping for, within your vicinity. It’s a pretty decent tool considering it’s free.
I found a variety of brushes ranging from 45 to 10 bucks. Not bad! The application loads photos of products available, store name, distance and store phone number. However, I highly recommend calling to confirm whether the item is in stock. Some retailers can be a little behind in updating their online inventories.
After a few clicks, I decided on a brush at Sephora. It was a bargain among the several comparable items listed at nearby stores. This shopping application saved the day. It made my shopping search relatively easy. Plus, it saved my feet and new stilettos from stomping from store to store.
