App Review: Clinch

Have you ever been shopping online and thought wow I love that but I’ll shop around a bit first and buy it later…well that’s me all the time. The problem is when I go back to find it I can’t remember where it is. It happened just the other day with trainers. I found some Nike ones I loved but then couldn’t find them again….lost forever! I tried Google searching but it’s unbelievable how many types of Nike Trainers there are!

I recently discovered there is an app in existence to solve this problem called Clinch. How it work is you browse online though the app and when you find something you like you ‘clinch’ it from the page. When clinched it grabs the items details and saves it in the app.

You can see you now have a photo of the trainers, the name, price and additional details.

I found four pairs of trainers I liked from various websites so I ‘clinched’ them all. I used the apps Compare feature to see the trainers side by side to assist me in the all important what one should I purchase decision. Seeing them side by side is extremely helpful because I’m usually drawn to one when I see them in this format.

You can also see all the details of the trainers and for me comparing the prices can really help me make a decision!

As a result I chose this grey pair of Nike Juvenate trainers.

Using the app I can now easily click on the trainers to go back to the website they are from and buy them…so simple!

Now I have the perfect trainers for me I wanted to plan a gym outfit to wear them with. I used the apps Canvas feature to do this by selecting other items I had previously clinched.

You can see I have written little notes about each item and I love how clean and fresh the page looks.

There are so many ways you could use the canvas feature. You could use it to plan an outfit like I did it or use it as a mood board when decorating a room…the possibilities are endless!

The Clinch app is free and currently available for iPad. It’s the perfect app to improve your online shopping experience and become more organised and coordinated. It’s quick and easy to use and made online shopping an easier, creative and more fun experience. Highly recommended!

    Oh my god what a lifesaver! I’m dreadful at online shopping – I don’t want to commit too early so I end up going round in circles looking at hundreds of similar items in different shops – then never buying any of them because I can’t decide! Hopefully this will help me whittle it down a bit – great review!
