For Deals Or Just The Latest Designs, These Are The Best Shopping Apps Out There

The very thing that makes Amazon great is also its greatest weakness; its robust selection of goods means you have to dig through a lot of duds before you’ll find a gem. Enter Canopy, a human-curated selection of unique fashion, lifestyle, and home decor products available on Amazon. Its design-focused ethos is obvious from its uncluttered UI to its tasteful picks, which range from an $11 USB plate to a $1,800 platform bed.

Touch of Modern app

For men who have everything and are notoriously difficult to shop for, Touch of Modern (ToMo for short) might be your best bet this holiday season. Known for offering lifestyle items that are both design-oriented and meant to start conversations, this app features timed sales that cover everything from retro hats and beef jerky to vintage Rolexes and Picasso prints.

The Hunt app

Sometimes, all you have is a photo of the floral bomber jacket you covet, but have no idea where you can buy the exact item or something similar. With The Hunt, you can tap into the collective intelligence of fellow fashionistas to get one step closer to owning these mystery pieces. Members can post links to share where an item-in-question is available and its current retail price. They can even go one step further and ask fellow style sisters for feedback on their outfits.

Flipp app

Shopping with paper coupons and weekly flyers may seem outdated in our digital world, but there is no denying the convenience of circling the best deals directly on your smartphone. Flipp combines the best of both worlds by providing a digital library of all the latest flyers and helping you build shopping lists within the app. All you have to do is tap on a specific product or coupon within the digitized flyer, and the app will automatically circle and add it to your digital grocery list for a modern shopping experience.

Ibotta

Ibotta app

Rather than clipping paper coupons to save pennies at a time, Ibotta (pronounced “I-bought-a”) gives you cash-back on your purchases once you get home by scanning your receipts and barcodes. The app is supported by most of the national and big-boxed retailers you can think of — Walmart, Aldo, Jamba Juice, etc. — so you’re bound to get some money back through this app. That said, you’ll need to accumulate at least $20 in your Ibotta account before you can transfer your money to PayPal, Venmo, or a gift card.

Tictail

Store 456

If you’re looking for handcrafted artisan work from around the world, look no further than Tictail. Artists and artisans come to Tictail to set up their own stores, much like Etsy, but with more polish and fewer rough edges. Here you’ll find more 100,000 storefronts, including everything from exclusive small-brand fashion lines and housewares to funny enameled pins and brooches. The app also compiles bargains, but remains far more concerned with bringing unique indie work to a wider audience. It’s a custom outlet for people making items they love, and you get some cool stuff without putting down your phone. Everyone wins.

Donde Fashion

Donde Fashion

Another iPhone-exclusive app, Donde helps you shop for women’s fashion using simple symbols instead of annoying words. If you read all day at work, perhaps your brain needs a break. It’s also helpful if you want a particular neckline or hem, but can’t remember the name of the style. After all, vocabulary limitations shouldn’t stop you from finding exactly what you want. Items are grouped together by type, color, and pattern, with options to filter them by budget and brand. Donde Fashion presents a pretty picture, and orders ship straight from the brand in question.

Spring

Cash 2

This app’s name is misleading; the gear on Spring is not limited to light, seasonal wear. The app hosts clothes, shoes, and accessories for men and women, as well as lifestyle and beauty products to keep you looking sharp. Spring offers pre-designed bundles for the holidays as well, such as the “Wanderer Kit,” a package that includes a dopp bag, charging cable, and a travel size grooming set outfitted with a cleanser and shave cream. Free shipping and returns are always welcome in a shopping app and Spring offers that, too.

Shopami

Crew 1

Shopami gathers all your shopping coupons in a single place. It’s annoying to go shopping only to later discover a promotional deal sitting in your inbox. With Shopami, you simply add the email you use for shopping and turn on notifications, ensuring the app will let you know when you’re near a store with an offer in play. Shopami will also let you know when you’re about to miss out on an offer expiring soon. You can turn off notifications if you hate being nagged, too, and the app will still let you know about offers expiring that day. The brand list is also broad, allowing you to skim coupons from the likes of Foot Locker, Lowes, Zales, and others.

Keep Shopping

Shop 345

Keep’s innovation is more in its styling and curation than any new access. The app presents a broad selection of housewares and categories, as well as guest-curated collections. This app is good if you like to keep your deals under $50, or if you’d rather shop based on the type of person you’re shopping for. Thinking of getting something for your girlfriend? Try “Gifts for Her,” where you can find a bunch of things she might like, such as The Big Book of Chic or some jewelry.

Wish

Cliff 2

Wish is like eBay’s prettier, younger sister. It offers similar items with a better display. What’s more, the way the app handles profiles is more transparent than other sites. It tracks your searches in whatever account you have linked to it, and categorizes them as tags. In your profile, you can see your favorite tags, which helps determine what shows up in your main feed. Other sites use a similar method, but they often don’t show them to you or automatically organize your wishlists the way Wish does. Another plus? It’s available for Windows users.

Stylect

If you’re looking for shoes, look no further than Stylect. It pitches itself as the app to find “all the shoes in the world,” and given it presents more than 10,000 brands, it probably not much of an exaggeration. It currently only supports women’s shoes — sorry, guys — but what they do have ranges from inexpensive to exquisite. It also includes all the filters anyone could ask for to help narrow down the huge selection of footwear.

Final 456

If you like the buzz of going to a physical mall, or read fashion mags for a different kind of buzz, Mallzee could be for you. It tracks trends from more than a hundred big clothing brands, allowing you to discover the newest collections and the freshest threads. The app also touts feeds you can personalize for events or specific items, along with price drop notifications for the latter.
