Official Newegg app is ready to do business in the Marketplace

Newgg Official App

Newegg.com--it's a geek's dream. It's also where we all go to build our own PC. Between their fast shipping, low prices, individual parts and even being tax-free here in New York (they're in Jersey, ahem), what's not to love about this place? Well, up until this morning you could have said they don't have a Windows Phone app. But now, my nerd friends, they do and it's great--smooth, slick and smartly laid out.

The app is Mango-ready out the gate, allows you to access your account and all your shopping right from your phone. But really, you want it for the ease of browsing their daily deals, right? Other notable features:

  • Comprehensive product specifications.
  • 1.7+ millions customer reviews.
  • Detailed item image gallery
  • Quick and simple shopping flow.
  • Simple and quick search function.
  • Search by category
  • Guided search
  • Advanced search
  • Sorting
  • Good for deal hunting: Shell Shockers, Daily Deals and Free Shipping.
  • All purchases made on Newegg Mobile are routed through Newegg's secure servers.

Sure, it has no Live Tile or pinnable subsections, so there's room for improvement. But as for the basics, we're giving it a thumbs up. Pick it up here for free in the Marketplace. Thanks, Ryan S., for the tip!

Just bought a new router from them the other day...always happy with their service, so I'm sure this will come in handy now and then.

This is cool. I wish you guys would make the QR codes a little bigger. My Focus (original) can't scan it. It looks blurry.

DOH! Guess I should have tried that. I was looking at it in Google Reader and didn't even try that. When I came to the site it was the same size. I was able to scan others without making them bigger so I thought it was weird these were smaller. HAHA, I feel stupid. :)

Mine doesn't give me any of the options to view what that graphic above shows.  It has a skewed logo and one post.  Can't shop or see anything except their one posted deal.  Looks  incomplete.

Wrong one :) I did the same thing. There are several apps pertaining to Newegg in the marketplace, but only one that actually says it's made by Newegg. Get that one. :)

I've been waiting for this app. It's well designed. Can't wait to see what more they do with it

This..this is wondrous. It's kind of a good thing I don't yet have a WP 'cause the quality of my presents to others would've plummeted what-with the direct access to their electronic nirvana (nerdvana?).
