Does Old Navy’s ‘Snap Appy’ App Usher in a New Era for Mobile Shopping? Join Us on LinkedIn for Mobile Mania Tuesday!
These days it seems like everyone has a smartphone. As more and more people continue to rely on their mobile devices, retailers have been under increasing pressure to develop a mobile site and/or app that's intuitive, innovative and, of course, thumb friendly.
Welcome to Retail Online Integration’s Mobile Mania Tuesday! Each week, we'll select a retailer and discuss its approach to mobile strategy and integration.
This is our second go-round and we thought it would be fun to take a look at Old Navy’s Snap Appy app. The idea behind this app is to get users to take a snapshot of an Old Navy logo and other special icons either at an Old Navy store, on TV or anywhere to reveal "surprises" — a deal, game or something to make you smile every time you snap. Surprises are always changing. The app also features a full-service shopping experience. Snap Appy is available for both iPhone and Android.
Does Snap Appy usher in a new era in mobile shopping or is it a novelty — fun to talk about, but too demanding to actually use? How do you see it evolving over time? For all you iPhone users, read about and download Snap Appy here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/old-navy/id342792281?mt=8
