An innovative app that helps user in shopping in a big mall. User dose not need to carry shopping cart. Just a Windows 8 tablet and that's it.  


User is already registered to Super market chain. While shopping takes a pic of product via tablet. identifies object from bar code, special pattern or a simple number. After identifying the object the app gives useful info about product like Price, Review, Special offer/discount and other stuff. User can add it to wishlist or purchase cart. At the counter user just needs to provide user account number and list is already available with company. Instead of waiting in long lines user just need to wait in cafeteria while counter collects the item and prepares a bill. User can also purchase and pay it  in app and get it delivered home.

This avoids most common problem in supermarket shopping, carrying things around, waiting in lines and reviewing/removing things from shopping list at the counter. 

  • If things anything is out of stock user can be shown near other near by markets where particular product is available.
  • User gets a notification is a she/he has added a particular thing ti wishlist and it has a special offer or its running  out of stock. 
  • User also gets live suggestion if better deal is available or bigger sizes of same product.
  • Based on users history of past visits to super market and kind and number of products purchased customized deals and offers unique individuals can be created.
  • This app also contains a map of each store so user can quickly find any item location via simple search.  


Understand retail categorization. Make is simple 3 step process to add any item to list. Search product, select product and add it cart. Make it simple intuitive and clutter free.

First version - supports browsing through catalogue
