Redecorate with Style Using the New Augmented Reality iPhone App from Blinds.com

  (November 09, 2011)

(PRWEB) November 09, 2011

Window Shopper, a new mobile app available for iPhone, uses augmented reality to allow users to cover their own windows in real time in a matter of seconds, transforming the way people shop for window treatments. With the Window Shopper app, trying on window blinds and shades is now as easy as trying on a shirt at the mall. This tool give homeowners all the creative power and support they need to choose the perfect window treatments without stepping foot inside a big box store or decorators shop.

The thing we hear most often from customers who are on the fence about buying online is, I dont know what the blinds will look like. The Window Shopper eliminates that worry completely, said Blinds.com CEO Jay Steinfeld.

You can simply snap a picture of a window or pull one from the camera roll and select the window shape. Once you have marked the corners of the window using the easy interface, swipe left and right to view different window treatment styles in the window.
In an industry that has been slow to embrace technology, this app revolutionizes how people buy blinds and will help everyone who uses it to feel comfortable buying custom products, like blinds, online, said Steinfeld.


Key features of the Blinds.com Window Shopper iPhone app include the ability to:

  •     Snap & Select: Take a picture of a window in your home, office, RV, boat...anything with a window you want to cover.
  •     Shop: Browse through Blinds.coms most popular products on YOUR window. Dont see the style/color combination you are looking for? Download additional product packs until you find the one that works.
  •     Sample: Get free color samples sent to your home so you touch and feel swatches and make sure the color matches your homes motif exactly.
