July 19, 2013. San Francisco. TheFind, the vertical search engine for shopping, has partnered with Huge to create and launch TheFind for iPad, a new shopping experience that streamlines the online shopping process. Designed from the ground up for iPad's large Retina display and multi-touch screen, the app saves people time and money by searching across every online store, locating all of the current prices on even the hardest to find items, browsing rich imagery and automatically filtering results based on individual preferences. Huge worked with TheFind on design and front-end development for the app, as well as branding and identity.
“With iPads rapidly proliferating across America, they are poised to become the dominant device for at-home shopping within the next two to three years,” said Siva Kumar, CEO of TheFind. “Shopping stands out on the iPad, as it is just about the only core segment of media consumption where most of the activity still happens in a browser, not an app. We think it’s simply a matter of time before something very much like TheFind for iPad, which aggregates across all stores, simplifies checkout and helps people manage their online spend, becomes a daily shopping habit for millions of online consumers.”
“We are so proud to have partnered with TheFind to create their new iPad shopping experience,” said Alison Grippo, Managing Director of Huge San Francisco. “The new app gives users a beautiful, fun place to shop, curate and track millions of products from thousands of online stores with ease. We look forward to seeing its popularity grow and using it to finally find everything ourselves."
Instantly personal search results are driven by your preferences as expressed through Facebook likes, search activity on TheFind and email transaction receipts via Slice. Streamlined checkout means that any product can be easily purchased from any online store from within the app. Email receipts from any store allow the app to keep track of all users’ online orders, shipments, return policies and more.
The launch of TheFind App follows the release of data from TheFind that shows both strong demand for a better iPad shopping experience, coupled with enormous growth in both iPad ownership and the use of these devices as a preferred shopping platform.
