I haven’t tried this yet, but it sure sounds interesting…

Slifting back-to-school with GPShopper

Back-to-school shopping can leave kids and their parents dazed and confused. There are so many questions: where can I find the latest fashions, the coolest gear, and who has them in stock? GPShopper (www.gpshopper.com) comes to the rescue and answers all these questions and more with the first ever local mobile phone product search.

With over 30 million products, GPShopper and its revolutionary Slifter (www.slifter.com)technology allows kids and their parents to receive up-to-the-minute product availability, location and price right on their cell phones.

With Slifter, kids and parents can have a Shopping List right on their cell phone. The consumer simply enters the name of the product they want and their zip code. Their mobile phone displays a photo of the item along with a product description, list of prices, store locations, phone numbers, and directions. Kids can now even share items in their Shopping List with their parents or friends for future birthdays/holidays.

Back-to-school shopping has become a sort of tradition for most households. And, now Slifter is subtracting the stress and adding ease and enjoyment to the back-to-school process.

I wonder what they’ll come up with for the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa season?
