Jackthread, the members-only men’s online shopping club, is launching an app developed by Fueled Mobile Design and Development on Tuesday to make it a bit easier for its members and the 20 percent of them who already come through their mobile devices to shop. The online and now mobile shopping club features top-tier street, skate, surf and contemporary men’s fashion brands as well as offer daily sales of up to 80 percent off. The Jackthread app will be available as a free download in the iTunes App Store as well as the Android Marketplace.

The site had yet to be optimized for mobile device users despite their 8 million page views per month, but with the new apps the company anticipates a drastic increase in the number of mobile shoppers. The users who download the app are given the option to sing up for daily reminders for exclusive announcements about curated sales as soon as they go live as well as special sales available only for mobile users. New users will also be given instant access to the daily deals and will not have to wait for an invitation.

The problem with the iPhone today is that is has become the hub of all decision making. Starting with Urbanspoon and with Yelp, and even OpenTable, we rely on apps to guide us to where we want to go.

None of these apps have any sort of human touch though. Apps like Yelp and Urbanspoon just jumble up all the places in the area and then rank them based on user ratings. You might be looking for a really cool restaurant to kick back at after a long day, but nothing that these apps have will help you narrow down your options. There’s just no differentiation between The Cheesecake Factory and the coolest place in town, and there’s definitely something wrong with that.

To fix this issue, Thrillist has made an app that hand picks the very best in food, drinks, and shopping, all with descriptive editorial, to finally give you what you want… something great.

“Search, sort, share, and save thousands of hand-picked, local favorites — from five-star steaks to two-dollar tacos, rooftop clubs to underground speakeasies, and bespoke shirts to kicks inspired by Jacques Cousteau.”

Next time you are looking for somewhere to go, just do a quick Thrillist search and see what’s awesome right around you. It’s not available in every city yet, so check out the list of cities on the iTunes page before you pick it up.
