Sccope App for BlackBerry Goes Social(June 20, 2012)
Windsor, UK (PRWEB UK) 20 June 2012
Cogenta, the developer behind the popular shopping app for BlackBerry Sccope, is pleased to introduce its latest 3.3 version, now available on BlackBerry App World, consisting of great new features that will make shopping a social experience.
Sccope's users are as keen social media fans as they are savvy shoppers, looking for best prices and making the most of retailer deals, discounts and offers. Having recognised this, Sccope developers added these new features to allow its users a thorough mobile shopping experience:
- Sharing and discussing products found on Sccope with BBM friends within Sccope;
- Sharing product details and user wish lists with BBM and Facebook friends;
- Sharing Sccope app with BBM friends who are new to the shopping application.
When it comes to making shopping social, Cogenta's CEO Adrian Hobbs meets the challenge with enthusiasm: "We are very excited about the latest release of Sccope which uses BBM and other popular social networks to create a social shopping experience". He also adds that: "Sccope is unique in the way it enables shoppers to get real-time feedback from their trusted BBM friends by making the full use of BBM integration: sharing product information, initiating conversations and discussing them all within the App".
