Here's yet another reason to stayed glued to your phone, constantly. Snapette, a location-based shopping application, just underwent an upgrade that now lets users stay connected to their favorite stores in a borderline-obsessive kind of way. With the new version of the app, shoppers are able to view new products, in-store events, and even exclusive deals from participating stores that include Sigerson Morrison, Thistle & Clover, Steven Alan, Jean-Michel Cazabat, and plenty more.
On top of all that, merchandise can be purchased through a brand's e-commerce page by clicking on a "Buy Now" button. And since it doesn't exist unless it happens on several social media platforms, users can share their snaps on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, and Tumblr. Head here for a full list of stores.
