With the Coronavirus pandemic leading to panic-buying and a lot of empty store shelves, two developers created an app called 'WhatsInStock' to help keep shoppers informed.
The WhatsInStock app was created by Andrew Dushane and Matt Dupree as a way to help consumers find the items they need during the Coronavirus pandemic. The app helps shoppers by revealing what is currently in stock, what's running low, and what’s not available at their local store. The app relies on user-generated data, which means that other shoppers can report on current stock levels to provide those at home with up-to-date information. As Dushane and Dupree explain on the WhatsInStock website: "It’s a tool for neighbors to help each other shop confidently and efficiently anytime. And in this unprecedented pandemic, it can help us limit travel and in-person interaction as much as possible.”
