New App Helps Christmas Shoppers Make a List and Checks for Best Prices
South Lake, Texas – This Christmas, savvy consumers will be going shopping with a new secret weapon – a new iPhone app called MyList.
MyList leaps ahead of its competitors because it offers users with 3G or later phones the ability to scan a product’s bar code and seamlessly transfer the data to its powerful database where the information can be sorted and compared using several factors like price.
MyList also allows you to take a photograph of the item being shopped for, which is especially helpful if it has different visible features offered by different manufacturers or vendors.
Another major advantage of MyList is that it makes it effortless to synchronize your shopping experience with family and friends. After downloading the free app at the iTunes App Store and registering MyList web site users can then build, manage, and personalize all their lists containing items from any retail chain that syncs in real time.
All lists are automatically synced to a group account to be shared with user-selected iPhone/IPod/iPad2 owners and synchronized with a website so the lists can be shared with family and friends using laptops, personal computers, tablets or netbooks.
“My wife got the idea for MyList,” explains James A. McNeilly, CEO of the Southlake, Texas company which developed MyList, Wedding Registry and Baby Registry among other mobile applications to make life easier and more fun. “We used to create all kinds of lists using Word and then leave the house without the list. Other times she would give me a note to pick something up and I couldn’t read her writing or I wasn’t sure which brand to get. To overcome these shopping problems we did an analysis of all the information needed for shopping and began developing MyList.”
To use MyList you simply click on any of the list examples and start adding items. Merely scan the bar code of an item which will then populate most items’ details automatically. You can also edit any detail seamlessly, or enter the store where the item can be found and add a photo.
When your list is complete notify each member of your group who will now be able to see your entire list by category and each item on your list. The shopper then chooses an item in the shop feature places a check on the item. When they have finished shopping they can tap the “Shopping Done” feature and the item will remain on your list but show no quantity, indicating it has been purchased.
The app is available directly from the iTunes App Store. The app is being promoted by Westwind Communications iPhone App Publicity.
