Shopping search engine TheFind has released a new iPad app designed to give users a more effective experience of finding what they want using the iPad.
TheFind applies machine learning and semantic search to shopping, by crawling the web, and collecting information on over 500 million products from 500,000 stores. The results include product comparisons.
Company spokesman Usher Lieberman told VentureBeat that 30% of TheFind’s traffic is now mobile, and its iPad traffic has grown by more than 250% in the last year.
“An app like this will be destructive in e-commerce,” Lieberman claimed.
"Our app can fundamentally provide a better experience by cutting across all stores with personalized search, making check out easy, and storing your information. We want this iPad app to become the de-facto starting point for shopping and, ultimately, a daily habit.”
