As you may or may not know, I’m a bit of an app addict. I enjoy finding and testing new apps, and of course I enjoy sharing them with you too. I recently found out, from the lovely Sian over at Mummy-tips, about a new app which promises to simplify shopping, . Anything that simplifies shopping is good in my book, and as this one is a free app, I downloaded it and gave it a try. Shortly after this the developer of the app contacted me to ask if I was interested in hosting an AMAZING giveaway to help raise awareness of the app, and so I present to you my first ever giveaway…
Simply Tap is the new, instant mobile checkout that allows you to buy in seconds when you see something you like in magazines, out and about, on-line and in store. Download the app for your smartphone, register your details once, tap in the unique Simply Tap code to buy and your delivery will be on its way. You’ll find tap codes in magazines, on posters or on the websites of Simply Tap retailers like Carphone Warehouse, Thorntons, Pretty Green, Best Buy.
Essentially, you see what you want, simply enter the Tap Code into the app, and you’ve paid in an instant. You can find out more information here: http://www.facebook.com/SimplyTap
The app itself feels like it’s in its infancy – I have yet to see any “tap codes” anywhere yet in my everyday life (although to be fair I haven’t looked very hard) – but if this catches on I can see it being brilliant. And very dangerous to my bank balance! All that I’ve seen of the app so far are the selection of special offers and cashback deals available, and I haven’t yet felt the urge to buy anything through it. That’s the reason I’m not highlighting it as an “app of the week” – I haven’t used it fully yet! Mind you, I must admit their current “£10 cash back when you buy a Kindle” offer is extremely tempting… The geekdaddy has been hedging for a Kindle for ages, and that would sort out his Christmas present…
However, two of my lucky readers are going to be able to go one better than that! Because Simply Tap would like to offer all the UK-resident readers of geekmummy the chance to win a brand new Amazon Kindle. I’ve got TWO to give away, and to be entered into the draw to win one all you have to do is tell me: If you could have anything in an instant, what would it be? Entries must be submitted using the widget below, and there are some optional additional entries you can do as well:
