BY Dan Berthiaume

San Francisco – Free digital personal shopping assistant Shop It To Me has released an iPhone app. This makes Shop It To Me, previously available via Internet and e-mail, available to smartphone users.

Shop It To Me searches more than 100 online department stores and specialty retailers to uncover sales on items that exactly match each shopper’s preferences. Relevant sale items are compiled into a single email and delivered to the shopper, who can click through to a retailer to make the purchase.

Shop It To Me for iPhone is part of a new unified interface that enables shoppers to check their latest sales, to save favorite items for later and find out what’s trending. The mobile app is available exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category. Shop It To Me plans to add social shopping to its offerings this winter.

"Consumers want to shop sales but are tired of being bombarded with emails from dozens of different retailers pushing everything under the sun," said Charlie Graham, founder and CEO of Shop It To Me. "We let you see when just the items you care about go on sale in your size."
