Recently, Trend Hunter featured the Eyeona app, a tool that alerts you when something you've previously purchased gets marked down, and now you can add Hukkster to the list of shopping apps you won't be able to live without. Hukkster, the brainchild of Katie Finnegan and Erica Bell, is an app that alerts you whenever fashion items you desire go on sale. With this innovative shopping app, you will never have to obsess about whether or not you should pay full price for that pair of designer leather boots or handbag ever again. You can also say good-bye to buyer's remorse!

When you're shopping online, just use the Hukkster app to 'hukk,' or hook, on an item you want. The app lets you set details such as the desired price point or sale rate, and it will then track that fashion item for you, notifying you via text message or email when its price or sale rate reaches one of your set preferences.

Hukkster is definitely a dream come true for budget-conscious fashionistas and online shoppers. As co-founder Katie Finnegan puts it, "Instead of making impulse purchases you later regret, with Hukkster you track the products you care about, creating a virtual wish list that allows for comparison shopping and efficient decision-making."
