Web Site Review: Wishpot
July 25, 2007
Ever wish you could store all your fab online finds in one place? Your wish is Wishpotâ€™s command, and organizing your faves is just the tip of the iceberg. Wishpotâ€™s what the tech world is calling a â€œsocial shoppingâ€ site; like Facebook or MySpace, you create a network of contacts with whom you can swap shopping tips, exchange advice and product reviews, and get general feedback on your finds (because, letâ€™s face it, sometimes when thereâ€™s no virtual mirror available, you need a virtual pal to tell you that that vest is heinous.)
Wishpot is a virtual shopping genie in a bottle: type in the product youâ€™re shopping for (everything from clothes to electronics to gifts) and Wishpot will generate a list of popular picks. Download the Wishpot browser button and give it a click every time you find something you crave on your favorite online retailersâ€™ sites; your new â€œwishâ€ will be waiting for you next time you log in (think of the possibilities for wedding and gift registries). And take Wishpot on the road when you do â€œrealâ€ shopping. Simply click a camera-phone pic of what you desire, text message it to Wishpot with self-created tags, and voila! Itâ€™s added to your list while youâ€™re on the go so you can pick it up online.
