Sift Shopping has arrived
Posted: 1:24:00 PM 0 comments
About 6 months ago, I started working full time on a startup venture located out of the San Francisco Bay Area while working from home. Since joining, I have taken five trips out to the area. Lots of planning, coding, and sleepless nights have occurred between now and then. In fact, if you're wondering why I don't write here as much anymore, this is probably the main reason. With the exception of my WoW raiding time with SMTR, most of my free time has gone into a new creation.

Today, that creation is here. Introducing Sift.

Currently it's an app for the iPad 2 or higher that basically takes all of your shopping-related email sales and puts them into one easy-to-access place. We currently support nearly 3,000 shops, so even if you're just a casual shopper like me, I'm pretty sure you'll find something of interest in Sift. It does have Chick-Fil-A, after all.

Not only can you get your sales into Sift, Sift can also bring sales to you. We get hundreds of newsletters per day, allowing users to find new places to shop. We also have social connections, so you can see what your Facebook friends are interested in buying, as well as share your interests with others.

And did I mention it's beautiful? Probably the best part of the app, and I can't take credit for it. Seriously, you've seen this site, you think I could come up with that nice of an interface? With fluid animations and clean design, it makes the browsing experience a heck of a lot more enjoyable than sifting through your email yourself.

This is something that I've poured the last several months of my life into, and I'm quite proud of the result. So if you've got an iPad 2 or newer, give us a try and let me know what you think.
