Clutch is an ambitious new mobile shopping app from a Lansdale, Pa. startup. Ready for this?
“If you were to put together a Pinterest, a Facebook and an Amazon that’s the kind of platform that we are trying to be. You can tag the information that you like specific to shopping it,” said cofounder Ned Moore in an interview with BetaKit. “We have the social aspect around the Facebook functionality, and we have a pretty heavy shopping aspect around Amazon.”
Here’s what you can do with the app, according to a release:
- find local deals, which the app will aim to deliver to you at the right time (like a coupon for a store that you’re shopping in at the moment)
- redeem gift cards and loyalty rewards from your phone
- check out your friends’ wishlists
- scan product barcodes to compare prices with similar items
