As one of the web’s most loved social shopping sites, it was only a matter of time before Svpply, which has long brought the window shopping experience online, launched its first iPad application.
Today, you can download the new iPad app, sit back on your couch and enjoy its elegant interface and seemingly endless product catalog of over 1.3 million products and 80,000 stores. Open up the app and you’ll find the Svpply Shop, a constantly updated, endless scroll of the beautifully designed products, fashion items and tech selected by Svpply’s community of members and tastemakers, with over 3,000 new products added a day.
As you would expect of such a beautifully designed ecommerce site, the Svpply iPad app is equally aesthetically pleasing and intuitive. Use the app to search for accessories, art, shoes, tech, media, home stuff and sort items by category, gender and price. Connect your social accounts to visit your friends’ favorite products or thumb through the collections of their favorite stores. It’s like Stumbleupon meets Tumblr but for hipster shopping.
“We set out to build the best window shopping destination on the planet.” says Allan Yu, Svpply’s lead designer. “Svpply has the best products from the best stores, and now you can get lost in them with a few taps of your finger.”
To date, the New York-based Svpply (pronounced “supply”) has raised $550,000 from Spark Capital and other investors. The site is similar to the London-based Lyst, which has raised $1.5 million and lets you follow your favorite designers, stores and stylists and the New York-based Fancy, which has raised $18 million in funding and focuses on meta-tagging to create the Web’s best database of “things”.
