We’re changing up Web Wednesdays this week to bring you an app you should know about. Especially if you like Pinterest, listen up.

Have you heard of Snapette? It’s like Pinterest for shopping on the go. Created by Sarah and Jinhee as part of a Harvard start-up competition, it encourages users to snap photos of shoes and handbags they find while out shopping. It aggregates these looks into a Pinterest-like view board, allowing shoppers to browse items near them and share cool finds with their followers.

Not interested in the app? Snapette is also available online, where you can browse before heading out to go shopping or just look at the eye candy uploaded from the users in over 130 different countries. The only drawback with the online version is that browsing by location isn’t as intuitive as we would like, but overall you’ll see a lot of Instagram-eque photos of drool-worthy shopper curated inspiration.

    I tried using snapette for a while, but the users don’t really know what it’s for. Women start posting pictures of their manicures/nail art, and soon the app becomes Instragram #2.
    This is strictly to inform other shoppers where to buy things, not to show off your beauty secrets.
    OR users don’t fill in every info field and you’re left wondering where the item can be bought, how much it is, and who it’s made by.
    So until people using Snapette follow the rules, this app is doomed to fail.

    Leah, we really appreciate your feedback on this! Where are you located? Do you use the online version or the app? We haven’t noticed much on our side in Seattle, but we tend to go more on the website than the app. Online there are “buy now” links to the items, too, though we found the UI needs some work. Love these kind of insights, thanks and look forward to hearing from you!
