We’ve been pretty quiet on the development front for a while, largely because we’ve been working on a revamp of Shoplette‘s user interface and Shop-related features over the past month. We’re now happy to announce the relaunch of Shoplette with a spanking new interface that’s more fun and easier to use.
The new interface features an easy-to-use “Show me” navigation widget in the right-hand column that brings you to all our shopping feeds, as well as related shopping information when you’re looking at shopping locations and items. The new gallery also simplifies everything and lets you focus on what you’re really interested in – what other people bought and where they bought it.
Special thanks to our friends Andy Croll at Deepcalm and Stuart Wason at Headspace for their invaluable help and advice in our revamp.
We’ll also be releasing a new set of shop-related features very soon, so look out for it!
In the meantime, please explore our new look!

A public service announcement brought to you by Shoplette.
Thanks to Techgoondu for a great write-up on Shoplette today!
“The idea: you spot a pair of pink hello kitty slippers in a boutique mall in Japan’s trendy Shinjuku shopping district to die for, and you want to let all your friends know. You whip out your phone, snap it, and upload it where all your friends can goggle over your latest purchase. Except that with Shoplette (beta), the whole world can find out what and where you like to shop.”
From: Shoplette: Singapore’s shopping twitter, Techgoondu.com, 12 Dec 08
The “twitter for shopping” moniker is definitely growing on us! We’re currently working hard on some new improvements on the service and will be releasing new updates in January 09. Look out for it!
Wallets are a little tighter this Christmas Season, so Lifehacker’s come out with a great guide to online deal finders. They’re all a little different from Shoplette, which provides “shopping intelligence from the crowd” by helping you find out where people bought great stuff, but for the savvy shopper, the more options the better, eh?
