Snipi: Drag and Drop Price Comparison That Travels With You

by mac on May 21, 2009

Snipi, which just launched today, has a pretty impressive solution for Firefox and iPhone users. Their toolbar, which works on stable versions of Firefox (ie. not beta versions), lets users drag and drop products, photos, and videos into the Snipi bar for immediate price comparisons and social sharing options. Then, they can take that information on the go using the iPhone app.

With Snipi, once users install the toolbar they can start grabbing images from product detail pages across the Web.  Snipped items will grab all product details — title, image, price — and users can then enter

a description, tags, and a category. Items stored in the Snipi toolbar travel with you in user-created lists and include price comparison details (by zipcode if necessary) and user reviews.

The toolbar is also social in nature. So, users can share their product, photo, or video snips with their Snipi friends, or via Twitter, Facebook, and WordPress. iPhone users can then access popular snips, their lists, and comparison shop right from their phones.
