Price PatrolSAN DIEGO — Earlier this month, Price Patrol, the only GPS-based, live inventory shopping app that lets users search the real time availability of the items they want, announced the launch of its new feature: in-app purchasing. The app, which launched in San Diego in 2014, is a search engine for live retail, allowing shoppers to search and compare the price and availability for over two billion products worldwide—both in stores nearby or online.

“Launching version 2.0 of Price Patrol is an important milestone because it showcases the app’s true potential; we’ve completely overhauled the app’s user experience and activated in-app purchasing, making it easier and more intuitive than ever before to get you the products you want, right when you want them,” said Vince Marconi, President and Founder of Price Patrol. “Whether you use the app to bargain shop for recurring purchases like diapers or are on the hunt for the most wanted toy this holiday season, Price Patrol is the go-to shopping companion.”

Here are just a few of the different ways Price Patrol makes locating products you want at a store near you seamless and convenient, with just a few clicks:

• With the app’s “My Radar” function, users can make a wish list in-app for their most coveted products. When the user is near a store that carries that item, they are notified of its price and availability.
• If you’re waiting for the price to drop on a certain something, the app will notify you once that item is in your ideal price range and at a distance you are willing to travel.
• On vacation to somewhere sandy and warm, but realize you forgot sunscreen? Open the app to view all of the stores close by that carry sunscreen and see real-time price and availability.
• If you regularly purchase the same brand of dog food like clockwork every month, a notification can be set so that you know which store in town is currently selling it for the lowest price.
• Purchase the item directly within the app, or have it waiting for you at the store to check it out in person before you buy.

Price Patrol is available for a free download on both iOS and Android devices. Learn more at www.getpricepatrol.com.

SAN DIEGO (Sept. 8, 2015) – everyStory, a new cloud-based story-sharing mobile app and platform, announced today that it is now available for free in the App Store for iOS devices. An Android version of the product will be available via open-Beta in the coming months. The company has developed a streamlined mobile application that allows users to create, preserve and share personal stories in one place. Accessible from anywhere, everyStory lets users store audio and image files to a private cloud-based system with the option of sharing photos and stories between other everyStory individuals and groups.

“I created everyStory after being diagnosed with colon cancer and realizing my son may never remember my voice or hear my stories. I am passionate about providing people with an innovative way to preserve and share memories forever in the most interactive way possible,” said Dave Keene, CTO and founder of everyStory. “Now having the app compatible and available for download on all iOS devices, the art of storytelling and preserving memories has never been easier. Users can start creating stories and sharing memories with their loved ones straight from the palm of their hand. We hope to elevate the lost meaning of photos with our unique unlimited audio recording, tagging, sharing and activity tracker features,” said Ed Cox, CEO of everyStory.

Users can import photos from a computer, iOS photo album or scan physical photos directly into the app using a device camera. everyStory integrates a social network component by having an activity view functionality and by encouraging users to tag photos with people, and/or by location, subject or date. To create an interactive photo-album, everyStory lets multiple users record an audio message, on the same photos, in a shared album or within a group. Users can simply tap a tagged person’s name to hear the story that is connected to a specific photo or album.

The everyStory team has plans to launch a full Android version in the coming months as well as implement new sharing, photo and audio features to the existing functionality. The app is free for users and is currently offering space for 1,000 extra photos as a sign-up bonus through September 2015. Various membership options will be accessible for sign-up no later than early 2016 for users interested in receiving increased storage capabilities.
