New App Lets You Shop And Chat With Mates In Isolation

We miss shopping. We miss our mates. We miss shopping *with* our mates. Which is why we were pretty excited to hear about a new app that helps with both of these problems.

Enter, TapApp Browser, a new app that lets you shop during lockdown, while chatting to your mates. Virtually, of course.

We must have approximately two million screenshots of various items of clothing saved on our camera roll. Okay, probably not two million, but definitely too many.

While browsing online, it *is* frustrating having to constantly screenshot items, close the app and head over to WhatsApp to send to a friend for their opinion.

Enter TapApp. It's a bit like mixing a web browser with WhatsApp. You'll still be scrolling through the likes of ASOS, Missguided and Topshop, but with TapApp, there's a chat window open at the same time, allowing you to shop and natter simultaneously.

Meaning no more laborious screen grabs...

You can also build group wishlists and unlock secret coupons to share with mates.

It's ideal for lockdown, especially considering we've all had to cancel shopping trips with pals. In fact, we can't even remember the last time we step foot in the likes of H&M or other high street stores. Sob.

"Over 20,000 people signed up in January to be first on the beta", said TapApp founder Steve Tucker, a Manchester based entrepreneur.

"And this was before the full magnitude of the pandemic became clear".

Steve built TapApp in his spare time after also becoming frustrated sending screenshots to friends on WhatsApp. We feel you, Steve.

As the situation started to change due to COVID-19 and the ongoing pandemic, Steve realised how useful the app could be.

"It's great to have a positive effect on people's mental health, and that's really why I decided to make TapApp free. It's the least anyone can do to give something back," he said.
