Having traveled a lot these days with my family does not make me any smarter. Well, at least not where shopping is concerned, as I am quite a terrible shopper.I’m an impulsive buyer. If I had it my way, I would probably just grab anything I fancy from the shelf while shopping. Alleviating stress would also prompt me to go on retail therapy, leaving me with buyer’s remorse soon after. All these habits would be fine if I am a rich woman with savings like a Fort Knox, but sad to say these habits are just killing me.
As much as I would love to stop being such a shopaholic, I got to admit that at times it is rather tereupeutic. So I suppose things can still be under control if I could make better desicions when I am on my shopping rampage.
Have you ever purchased something, or went to an eatery and upon finding out the price during payment, felt if you did not get the best deal? I always find myself in such a predicament, but lucky for me that there is a smartphone app to remedy that.
Here’s introducing CREAM, a new smartphone application currently available for android devices, with iOS compatibility coming soon.
So, what does it do? Read on below then.
CREAM can help you start making smarter purchasing decisions. Leverage the crowd by using CREAM to get real-time pricing information from others to determine if you are receiving a good deal or not.Features of this apps include:
- Unlimited amount of pricing questions to ask the crowd
- Notifications when you receive feedback on your pricing decision
- Price comparison tools to help you find more deals
- Compare prices on the same product all across the world
- Easy currency converter to convert foreign currencies
|Step #1: Snap a photo|
|Step#2: Enter the price of the item|
|Step #3: Share it with all the users in CREAM.io|
I’ve been using CREAM for the past one week or so since its launching on my Android based smartphone, the Ninetology U9Z1+.
Check out the activities notifications that I received.Even though CREAM is currently still in beta stage, the amount of users have been increasing daily, with more and more photos being shared and hundreds of feedbacks given.
Here is what I usually do: simply snap a picture of the item they were looking to buy, add the price and add a quick description of the item.
It would then be instantly sent out to CREAM users where they could let the consumer know if they were receiving a good price on the item. Users could then select other places nearby with better deals and also recommend other options and items. The data would then be presented nicely in a chart graph for the CREAM user to analyze and decide if they should purchase the item.
