Consumr: The App That Will Save Your Wallet (and have you addicted in 2 minutes flat)
This is the Age of the Smart Phone - we have endless archives of information at our fingertips at any given time, and our opinions are as powerful as advertisements (which is, like, really really powerful). Consumr uses all of these factors in the most beneficial and convenient method possible for consumers (get it?) and has created a one-stop-shop App and website for endless product reviews and recommendations.
Have you ever been in a store and come across an item that looks really cool, but you have no idea whether it’s really worth your money or not? Chances are if you have been in that position, you’ve either had to put the item back because you’re unsure, or purchased it on a whim only to be disappointed once you got it home! But with the Consumr App, you won’t have to worry about the unknown anymore. As long as you’ve got your phone, with a quick *snap* of the product’s bar code you can instantly read tons of different reviews on it! Not only reviews, but also similar products, other places nearby to find the item, and ratings as well.
When you first open up Consumr, you are given the option to browse products in each category (from baby to pet care, grocery to toys, home and garden to health) and from there your sub categories. You will find the Scan option at the lower lefthand corner. Just click this and hover over any product’s barcode to find that item instantaneously!
Once you’ve scanned the item, you can read other Consumers’ reviews and ratings, as well as add your own opinions to that product’s thread!
It’s that easy! Consumr also remembers every product you scan, so that you can go back and re-read the information or add your thoughts later. Every time you review or scan a product, you get points added to your profile, which add up to make your profile more recognized, help you get more Consumr friends, and eventually could even get you sent free stuff! The other day I came home to a package full of delicious snacks… who could say no to that?!
So what are you waiting for? This is an App that really has it all, and I would readily pay $5+ for it.. but I forgot to tell you the best part. It’s free!
So head over to the App store and download it straight to your iPhone.. or if you’re an Android person, or anti-smartphone completely, you can just visit http://Consumr.com on your computer and get the experience there as well!
