Official Snapdeal app gets much-needed refresh, now offering an immersive shopping experience

With over 18 million members, is India's largest online shopping site featuring a wide assortment of products from Indian and international brands in multiple categories.

While has had an official Windows Phone app since two years, it was a half-baked effort and hasn’t been updated much. The abominable reviews on the Windows Phone Store listing tell the tale. But as we’ve seen, 2014 has been a great year for official and marquee apps in India, and with their latest update, Snapdeal joins the fray.

The latest update bumps the app to version and brings a smooth online shopping experience on your Windows Phone device. The app also utilizes offline caching for improved performance. Users can sign-in for quick access to online product availability, shop from favorite brands, and get their order delivered by a free shipping service to 4000+ cities within India.

The revamped app features a user-friendly interface that allows you to browse through multiple product categories which are grouped in an intuitive and easy to navigate manner. You can easily find what you’re looking for using sorting and filter options. For each listed product, users can view reviews, specifications, and features before placing an order.

There’s also a neat option to shortlist products to view or buy at a later time. However, products shortlisted on your Windows Phone device are not accessible across all the platforms, which is a bummer. There's still some way to go.

Download the Snapdeal app for free from the Windows Phone Store. The app has an intuitive user experience, and competes with other e-commerce apps like Tradus and Flipkart. There are also exclusive mobile app-only offers, so give it a whirl, and let us know how you like it.
