The latest version of the top app incorporates Krillion’s StockCheck™
technology, which provides real-time inventory availability, and tells
shoppers if the product they want is in stock and available at nearby stores.
It also includes Krillion’s smart price comparison feature that alerts
shoppers if the product they are looking for is available at a lower price
from another retailer nearby.

New key features, powered by Krillion, include:

  *Real-time product inventory availability with map view
  *Dynamic “Best/Better” price comparison badges
  *Simplified store, category and price filters

“Product shopping research on smartphones accelerated 114 percent year over
year from 2012 to 2013, with the majority of shoppers checking product pricing
and availability^1, making it even more important to give these ready-to-buy
shoppers the critical information they need to make smarter purchase
decisions,” said Michael Sawtell, president and COO, Local Corporation.

“One of the first shopping apps of its kind designed for iOS 7, Havvit
delivers a highly personalized and intuitive shopping experience using our
patented Krillion local shopping platform, which aggregates shopping content
from 90 of the top 100 retailers,” added Sawtell.

Havvit supports on-the-go consumers, allowing them to track savings, compare
prices and find products nearby, all from their pre-selected favorite stores
and brands. Download the free, iOS 7-compatible Havvit app from iTunes®
