Pickn’Tell is mobile shopping experience that works anywhere. The application adds a social element to the common task of heading to the store. Users can choose outfits from their favorite shops and send them to friends for feedback or suggestions before making the purchase. Using a smartphone lets users request feedback while they are at the store or while at home. Users can save a wardrobe and create a wish list of items they want. Private chats are also available so users can converse with friends or family without showing the whole world what they are buying. A larger online community can also be accessed if the user wants to follow others with similar fashion sense.Show more screenshots »
Pickn’Tell was founded in 2011. The application was intended to change the way people shop for clothes. The features list has enticed many users, primarily because of the unique social functions. While users can share information on their shopping trip over networks like Facebook, Pickn’ Tell earns high marks because it caters to those shopping for garments and accessories specifically. So far the mobile-focused app has received many mentions and rave reviews across the web.
Pickn’Tell combines many of the things a shopper wants out of social networking. While the application includes many of the same features as sites like Facebook, it breaks away with numerous shopping related extras. Users can send photos of outfits to friends and get feedback even if they are browsing alone. The application also provides access to discounts, events and gift cards offered by their favorite brands.
Pickn’Tell utilizes a clean interface that is very upbeat and modern. Users can really get into the retail experience each time they log in with their smartphone. Each button is sleek and easy to find so the application takes minimal time to figure out. The website is just as eye-catching with vibrant photos of unique fashions worn by happy people.
A new user can sign up for Pickn’Tell by clicking the white “Create an Account” in the upper, right hand corner. A blue “Connect” button is also available nearby for users who prefer to sign up with a Facebook account. Those who go the traditional route are asked to supply a full name, phone number, password, gender, age group, country location and email address. After choosing notification options, the user is automatically signed in to their new account.
Just like most shopping-related applications, Pickn’Tell allows users to create an account and use all features for free. There are no subscription fees and the user isn’t required to make any purchases. The service will actually encourage users to buy items through discounts and coupons, so this is a fair tradeoff. Most users would likely skip the application if it came at a price. Free is just right for the features the user is given access to with Pickn’Tell.
Pickn’Tell is a great application for anyone who enjoys shopping for clothes and accessories. Those who frequent malls and popular retail stores will really love the convenience of browsing with friends literally in their pocket. Anyone who doesn’t make shopping a hobby may not find Pickn’Tell as interesting, but for everyone else it is a handy tool that can enhance the overall retail experience.
