MASHALOT (mashalot.com) is the only free social network where the conversation is completely about shopping. MASHALOT connects and enhances the shopping experience by allowing users, a.k.a. “Mashers,” to share items they want or have purchased with their family and friends. MASHALOT is available exclusively for iPhone and iPad from the App Store at www.AppStore.com.
Mashers snap a photo of the item they want or have purchased, tag the photo into a category, write some text and share instantly. They then share their posts – “Mashes” – simultaneously on MASHALOT, as well as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Tumblr. You will discover trending products, stores and deals by following other shoppers, tags or in the Search section and see what is trending locally or throughout the entire app. People, tags and places that have the most activity will populate a Masher’s feed. Users can personalize their feed by following others’ tags such as Deals, Apparel, Beauty, Travel, Restaurants etc. You will also discover the best stores, products and sales by choosing whose shopping profiles or tags to follow. Deals, Apparel and Foodie are some of the top tags on the app, ensuring Mashers are always in the know when it comes to the latest restaurant opening, hottest designer or retailer with the best savings in store or online.
