Newegg iPad App Review.
With technology developing faster than you can say technology, we always crave for the newest device on the market. With Newegg, you can find all the electronics you are looking for, but also jewelry, perfumes and even pet supplies.
A good viable alternative to the Newegg website
The Newegg app provides you with more or less the same product-browsing experience as its website counterpart. You can search for the item you want to buy and Newegg will list the results according to price, useful links and their subcategories. The best deals of the day are shown on homepage. Adding products to your wishlist or directly to your shopping cart is a breeze.
Newegg.com users are used to reading comprehensive product specifications and helpful authentic customer reviews. The iPad app didn’t miss the mark on this either. Each product is carefully documented, and most if not all products bear reviews. I don’t know about you, but I’m more likely to buy if other have already and recommend it to me.
One of the coolest features is the compare option that lets you select a couple of products and compare them according to their specs. To use this feature though, you need to be viewing a category. The option to Compare doesn’t appear when viewing an individual product.
So tap “Compare” and select up to five different items. Their specs are lined up nicely on the screen and you can easily add the one you like to your wishlist or shopping cart. It essentially the same flow as the website, but the fact that you can now touch the products you want to compare just makes it that much more easier.
I choose the iPad app
It’s great to see that not much has been stripped from the website experience. All in all, the app does a great job at simulating and even enhancing the web experience. Everything works as expected and there’s a good use of the iPad’s real-estate. It’s nice that you can “touch” products before having them delivered to your house.
Pretty much everything you would ever need is at the touch of a button. Whether you’re looking to see your account, what you recently viewed, share products with your friends or get help, they’re all within reach, just where you would expect them to be.
One thing I seriously enjoyed is the animation between categories, when browsing for products. The products just fly out at you and disappear. Then they are instantly replaced by the new selection. It’s the little things that make me smile, I know.
Newegg is the store that lets you window-shop for as long as you like without any pressure. It helps you compare products and remembers the products that you loved. And when you're ready to buy, you don't have to walk a mile to the store that holds your product. Because all the products are in one place, at one app download away. And personally, I choose the iPad app over their website for being much more user friendly than its click-only counterpart.
A version called NewEgg Mobile is also available for the iPhone.
