Finding deals online has never been easier thanks to the SnapUp app. Made for mobile shoppers who are as money savvy as they are tech savvy, it is as easy to use as taking a snapshot of a good photo. Interestingly, the SnapUp app is not based on a social framework, which helps make getting to the deals even less competitive.
Recently launched with $600,000 in seed funding, the SnapUp app essentially "extracts relevant data, such as product name, photo, and price, from the [screenshot] image," reports Fast Company. Currently making money through affiliate links, the creators of SnapUp also use this avenue as a metric to gauge consumer engagement. Working with about 1,000 retail websites, including Amazon and Target, the SnapUp app will eventually expand on its information database for users.
