Great Shopping App 

Wanelo is one of the most popular shopping apps around right now.  Wanelo (which stands for Want Need Love) allows users to post products from all over the web, onto the Wanelo site.

Reminiscent of Pinterest, user have a button in their browser, and can click it to post. As opposed to Pinterest, however, every image you see on Wanelo is is shoppable, and ties back to the e-commerce site it once came from.

The app is an extension of the popular site, Wanelo.com. Users can follow other users, brands, and influencers and discover a variety of products based on popularity.

 

Pros
Clean interface, very user friendly
Large scale means you probably have a friend or two on it, so you can be a voyeur and see what items they are thinking of buying
Massive amount of user generated data leads to strong product discovery potential

Cons
The biggest problem with the app, is something they are actively trying to fix, but have not been yet able to do so. When you click through some of the items to the retailer’s site, they are sold out.

 

AG Bottom Line
This app is trouble! In a good way. It is one of the most addictive, time consuming apps out there. Wallets beware. If you are looking to discover great new products, and spend your spare time drooling over new finds,  you need this app.

Highly recommend download
