Google Shopper For Android, iOS Gets New Search RefinementsBy: Chris Crum - March 19, 2013
The Google Shopper app for Android and iOS just got a new update with version 3.2, which adds some new search refinement options to make shopping easier.
“Need a new camera, but aren’t quite sure which one is right for you? Google Shopper 3.2 allows you to see the most popular cameras on Google Shopping via a specialized result page,” explains Google Shopper product manager John-Shriver Blake. “Overwhelmed by choice? Google Shopper 3.2 provides you with the ability to use category-specific refinements to narrow down your search. This means that if you’re looking for a point and shoot camera with a 10 Megapixel sensor, you can easily find the most popular cameras on Google Shopping which include that set of features.”
You can also refine searches by specific brands, stores, prices and other criteria. It will then show you the most popular items based on the criteria you select.
“Finally, once you’ve narrowed down your query to a few options, Google Shopper allows you to view detailed product information about each so that you can make an informed buying decision,” says Blake. “In addition to reading that information, viewing reviews from across the web or watching video reviews from YouTube, you may find it useful to view multiple high-resolution product images in the new lightbox viewer.”
The app is available in the Google Play Store, and in the App Store.
