Shimply App Review

With continuous blogging one thing has definitely happened to me. I have become shopaholic and now want to read all shopaholic series (I haven’t read those before). I use to hate shopping and now is just reverse. My phone is full of all types of new apps and its crying because of overload. But I am a shopping devil here not ready to show mercy. My latest app addition is Shimply. one of India's fastest growing, multi­ category online bazaar for Indian products has launched its mobile app. The app features a patent pending technology of Virtual Trial Room which gives you the freedom to see in advance how the products of your choice look on you, before you decide on one. These products have been sourced from different states of India and Shimply guarantees dual benefit of unmatched selection of products and value for money.
The virtual trial room by addresses the common problem that every woman faces while shopping online - trying on the product. With this feature, will make online shopping experience as close to physical shopping. This technology makes use of the camera on the customer’s phone to click their picture and then place a product on it to see how it will look. With the app, customers can try on multiple products, virtually; the product can be dragged to any part on top of the picture with hand gestures and touch features. The product and base picture (of customer) can be resized to generate a parallax and 3D effect that allows the customer to see the product in a way as if customer is actually wearing it. I have tried this feature and it’s so much fun to do that. Remember any virtual games where you have to doll up your avatar? It gave me the similar feeling.
Another amazing quality of this technology is that the customers can actually try home decors (like paintings/furniture, etc.) virtually to see how it looks on their wall/room. This ground breaking technology can also be used in shopping malls to let customers try on various dresses, without actually going to a trial room.

The patent pending technology aids the users to click their picture and try the products on the app without saving the picture on the phone. Also, it saves the customers from the peeping tom problem.

“In e-tailing categories like apparel, accessories, and furniture, consumers want to touch, feel and try before buying. Not only the consumers’ hesitation about the look of clothing or an accessory, disappears with our app, it also helps them try unique products which represent the Indian diversity and culture. This is the reason why we encourage people by saying ‘India ko try kar ke dekho’,” says Rajat Garg, Founder and CEO of
