Zipongo has just released an iPhone app. Now you can plan your grocery shopping trip and browse discounts on healthy food on the go. People all over the country use Zipongo to find discounts on healthy food. Zipongo aggregates national grocery retailer circulars, so you can see discounts at stores near you anywhere in the United States. The web app allows you to put in your ZIP code, choose your favorite stores, and see what items are on special in your area. Zipongo also filters for what’s healthy — GO Foods are healthful items with high nutrient values.
Now, with the iPhone app, there’s no need to be weighed down by a laptop or hampered by a lack of good WiFi. Once you enter your ZIP code and choose your favorite stores, you can browse all of the food on discount in your area from anywhere.
Once you’re logged in to the app, you can tap on a healthy item to compare prices at different retailers and get the best deal. Start building your grocery list by tapping “Add to List.” The item will automatically go into your grocery list.
Then, by tapping the “My List” icon at the bottom of the screen, you can view your entire grocery list. The Zipongo Grocery Store app keeps you in the loop on which foods are on discount. Each entry lists the sale price and the time remaining to take advantage of the discount special.
The app has also been designed to eliminate the need for paper lists. By tapping the “Add” button in the upper right-hand corner, you can add your own items, even if they aren’t on discount.
As you’re walking through the store, check off the items on your list as you pick them up. When you’re finished, tap the “Done Shopping” button, and the items you have checked off will be cleared. The unchecked items will be saved for your next trip.
We’re so excited to finally make Zipongo a completely mobile experience. The app is now available in the App Store, and we’re currently working on an Android version. Check back soon for further product updates.
