Zappos Android app makes shoe and clothing shopping a snap

by Caitlin M. Foyt

So you've got a style all your own, and you know exactly what you like. Zappos is your ideal place to go for shoes, clothing, accessories, beauty products and housewares.

Say, for instance, that you're a big fan of Chuck Taylor All Stars. You have a couple of pairs already, but because there are so many different styles and patterns, you think you will never have enough of that particular shoe. Zappos is a great way to buy your shoes online. Instead of sifting through Google results, you just tap on shoes and select the category (sneakers+athletic) and you're well on your way to owning yet another pair of your favorite shoes.

At the same time, though, Zappos is also a resource to consult when you might not know exactly what you're looking for. You can browse by item, conduct a search, or browse brands. If you find something you like, you can add it to your favorites and buy it later.

Because everything is organized in a logical way, it's hard to imagine the average smart phone user would have any difficulty with this one. Everything is broken down by styles or brands, and each product listed on Zappos has a photo.

If the constant clicking around of online shopping tends to frustrate you, this is a great alternative. The fact that this service is available on-the-go is dangerously convenient.
