Every day, TriplePoint client AppGratis hand-picks an app that they think you ought to have. They feel strongly enough about the app to make it free for a day. We download and check out what’s on offer — because it’s free.
AppGratis has a special present for you today! All you need to do is find it, decide you want it, and buy it, and AppGratis will cover you with $25 in credit. $25 to buy very real merchandise in the actual world, not in game goods or microcurrency! Pretty fancy, right? That’s the deal with today’s app, Fancy, a new social shopping system that lets you “discover, collect, and buy from a crowd-curated catalog of amazing goods.” Sign in, and browse a Facebook-style list of posts from Fancy users, except each post is an item you can purchase and have sent to yourself. If you like an item, you can say that you “fancy” it, in the British sense; items you’ve “Fancy’d” can be shared with your friends, commented upon, and added to customizable lists.
Fancy is a great way to browse for gifts, allowing users to pick genres, price points, and even colors they’d like to see — but if you’re still stumped, an in-app gift consultation allows you to submit a request to the Fancy community for their own suggestions. Fill in a little info about the gift recipient, and send off an email. AppGratis’ gift to you today is $25 in Fancy credit — just put in the coupon code “appgratis” at checkout. I’m getting this Robot Tea Infuser!
