BarBack, a new kind of mobile application that enables users to bypass crowded bar lines by ordering their favorite drinks, paying, and closing their tab right from their smartphones, this week officially launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.com for garnering widespread support and the necessary financial backing to complete and market the app on a grand scale.

Founded by a team of active duty Marines and veterans on a mission to put an end to the long lines at bars in everyday life, BarBack provides users with a wide variety of benefits that prevents the awkward cutout of good conversation at bars.

“This app prevents the classic bar problem of leaving conversations to wait in a line,” said Jimmy Murtha, Co-Founder of BarBack. “Instead, people can finally maximize their time with friends, and add real value to their social experiences night after night.”

BarBack comes with a “Nearby Feature,” enabling users to locate the closest bars to them geographically that offer BarBack. It also comes with a “Rating Feature” that allows users to rank beers and bars so others can read about a venue before they visit it. Plus, there’s a “Favorite Feature” so users can keep track of their favorite drinks and experiences out with the app.

In order to launch BarBack on a wide scale with multiple locations live in the app, BarBack is looking for crowdfunding supporters to offset the cost needed to provide BarBack at a minimal price for the first year.
“We have ambitious plans for BarBack, which is why we’re asking everyone to consider supporting the campaign on Kickstarter today,” said Alvaro Yanes. “With help, we can bring BarBack to dozens of locations in America’s most popular cities. Spread the word.”

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.
