Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Shopping
Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Shopping Apps

Shopping. Everybody does it. Some enjoy it, some despise it but few will argue that making shopping easier is a bad thing.

In this week's Windows Phone Central app roundup, we're taking a look at a few shopping apps designed to make it easier to find the best prices and/or make your purchases on the go.  As with all our roundups, if we missed your favorite shopping app feel free to sound off in the comments.

When it rains, it pours. The past few weeks we’ve been experiencing a higher than average activity with apps and the Windows Phone Store. Whether new apps like Pandora or updates to old ones, it’s been busy lately. Add The Home Depot to that list of updated apps, it’s just been bumped up to version 3.0 and brings a variety of new features and a refreshed look.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and that’s what we seem to have here at the Home Depot. According to one of our readers, Nate B., at least one of their stores has this new kiosk on display.

The obelisk looks a lot like a giant Windows Phone that’s been repositioned for the Home Depot’s uses although it retains a very Metro-Tile look and feel. Heck, the tiles even flip to reveal more info!

No word if these are going elsewhere or if Microsoft is involved but we do like the idea of Metro (or whatever it will be called) spreading around. 

Check the video of it in action after the break and don’t forget, you can grab the Home Depot app for Windows Phone here. Thanks, Nate, for the video!

The Home Depot releases an official app for WP7

It's always cool when "official" apps hit the Marketplace and tonight we have pretty big one: The Home Depot. Sure, they're not the first company that springs to mind when we think of smartphone apps, but truth be told it's actually pretty slick:

  • Search the store (all departments)
  • Make purchases
  • Store locator
  • In-store map (!)
  • My Account & My lists
  • Deals/Featured products

Yeah, that's not too shabby at all and the layout is up there with other apps like Amazon's. So if you like to spend time the Depot, you'll want to pick this up.

Available here in the Marketplace. Thanks, Amir, for the heads up
