I am comfortable admitting that I love my iPhone. It is always with me and it just does soooo much! When it comes to downloading new apps I stick to things that are useful to me. I am a busy mom so I want my apps to make my life easier. Flipp is the free app that is PERFECT for busy moms. Forget collecting weekly ads and trying to create shopping lists to save you money. Flipp digitally aggregates over 400 retail flyers from national chains as well as hundreds of local stores to help consumers find the latest sales in their community. You put in your zip code and it shows you the flyers that are local for you.
All the pictures in this post are screenshots of me actually using the app. Here is the weekly Target ad. You literally flip through the flyer as if it the paper copy was actually in front of you.
By tapping on the picture it circles the item for you so you can keep track of what you want.
It also puts your circled items onto a "clippings" section to make it easy for you to go right to that part once you are at the store.
The latest release of Flipp has a unique set of features that sets it apart from other shopping apps, including:
- Flip ? Browse through all of your weekly local flyers quickly and intuitively
- Shopping List ? Plan ahead and stay organized while shopping by adding items to the digital list, discovering matching offers from your local flyers, and checking them off in-store
- Search ? Easily find a specific store, item or brand
- Clippings ? Tap an item in a flyer to clip it for easy access while shopping and price-matching
- Item Details ? Tap and hold on an item for additional product information and reviews
- Discount Slider ? Highlights the best savings in the flyer to find them at-a-glance
- Notifications ? Reminders about expiring clippings and nearby offers ensure you never miss a deal
This latest version includes a super handy shopping list feature. Just type in what you need at the store and once at the store mark it off as you put it into your shopping cart.
The really great part is this app will then let you know
what stores have that item on feature that week. You don't even have to browse the
flyers as it will just tell you who has it on sale! Here is the milk on sale at stores in my area.
For those of you that like to do price-matching at stores, this is the easiest way to browse all the store sales in one place.
The latest version of Flipp is available for free download from the App Store on iPhone and iPad in the U.S. and Canada, or at App Store. The new version will be available on Android soon. I am a tad lazy and clipping coupons has never been my thing but this app has made it so saving has never been easier. I love that it is all neatly done in one app and I now find it fun to find the best deals. With their newest upgrade I cannot think of a single thing I would change. This is the app for busy moms that want to save money on their shopping trips but don't have the time (or desire) to sift through flyers and write out shopping lists. Flipp is the time saver app that helps you save money on the stuff your buying anyway....don't shop without it!
