Shopping apps that clearly and attractively display their wares seem to be on the rise of late, which is how we find ourselves with Tictail - an app that demonstrates just why people like such tools. It’s a convenient way of finding cool new items to buy, without getting off the couch.
Starting out, Tictail requires no set up to speak of. While purchasing items, understandably, requires you to sign up (either via Facebook or email), but you can simply browse what’s on offer before you go that far. The app provides a number of different categories, each attractively laid out through a series of images.
You can find products relating to shoes, gadgets, backpacks, jewelry, accessories, and plenty of types of clothing. Once you enter a category, you simply swipe your way through what’s on offer with large photos demonstrating what you can buy or the kind of store that you can further explore. Each item comes with a small description, as well as a price and shipping cost, depending on your country.
There’s an almost Etsy like quality to what’s available, with some great original bits and pieces for sale here. Often they come with a premium price tag, but it ensures that Tictail feels classier than just going to a regular store.
It’s remarkably easy to buy stuff, perhaps almost too much for those who are easily tempted into buying new things. For those simply planning ahead, a Like button, as well as the option to share with others, ensures you can keep a tab on possible purchases.
Easy to use, stylish, and a great way of finding some hidden delights that you just couldn’t find in regular shops, Tictail is sure to keep avid consumers happy for a while.
