    Slifter Local Shopper Now Available to BlackBerry Users

    Advertisement





    Slifter, a popular mobile shopping tool that uses LBS technology to search and share products and promotions at local retailers, is now available for download on BlackBerry smartphones from Research In Motion.

    BlackBerry smartphone users can now shop smart by searching more than 300 million products available at more than 150,000 retail stores across the U.S. Slifter for BlackBerry smartphones will allow users to: search local store inventory for products, Hot Deals, and promos (including 40 million circular offers); see product information, images and maps; save products and promotions into a mobile Shopping List; and share finds with friends.

    "Slifter on BlackBerry smartphones serves as a way to enhance and illustrate the power of mobility in retail," said Alex Muller, CEO of Slifter. "With address book integration, rich product results, and GPS integration on available models -- Slifter's BlackBerry smartphone build was designed to truly personalize a consumer's shopping experience."

    Interesting, I think this has great potential....but right now it's not working for me. I live approx 30 miles east of Phoenix and my area is not metro at all, but very close to a lot of shopping.

    I tried looking up random drug store items since they(Slifter) had walgreens rolled gauze as a hot item. The first item I looked up it said was available at CVS, but gave the nearest location 20 miles away.....there's a CVS about 6 miles from my house....

    Then I looked up tampax tampons and it came up with two items, a 500 count box for $80 (online) and a tampon vending machine $295(also online).....what about the large assortment of stores in my area that I can confirm do sell tampax tampons??

    Even with GPS and my zip code, it said the nearest place to get a Conair folding handle hair dryer for $13.88 was 20.42 miles away.......yet when I view the map in the application, it shows the walmart that's just 5 miles from my house.....

    So, yeah, great idea, and I can't wait to try it again in a few months and see how much the accuracy has improved......but I'll dump it for now

    Maybe it works better in the really metro areas right now.

    This is a great little prog! Used it a couple months till I had to delete it because my native memory was choked in spite of the fact that I had 1.8g still open on my memory card.
    Can't wait for the 9500

    I had another program similar to this on either my 7105t or 8100 that did the same thing except it gave a list of things to choose from to build your shopping list. I don't remember the name of it though.

    I just tried it again, made sure my zip was correct, searched sandisk sd card.

    It told me the nearest was 26 miles away, but there's a circuit city less than 10 miles from me......weird
