Walmart's iPhone Application
By David Dorf on Nov 05, 2009
Walmart's iPhone application has a similar feature. It allows users to post a product to Facebook so that you can ask for advice. I tried this as you can see in the picture. Seems like a pretty handy feature. It also allows users to "bookmark" products, sort of like a wishlist although it doesn't appear to be linked to their e-commerce site. Bummer.
The Walmart application is limited to electronics, which is a good place for them to start. There's an innovative feature that lets you take a picture of your room and determine the best TV size. I didn't bother to really see if it works well (I took a picture of the first class cabin on a 757. It said it needed a 20" TV, which is actually about right.), but it demonstrates outside-the-box thinking.
Any other retail-industry apps I should be using?
