I think it’s fair to assume that many of us know about Newegg and the fantastic deals they offer on electronics, computer components, etc. As you’d expect, the Newegg Android app features detailed specifications and over 1.7+ million customer reviews for an endless list of products.
You can quickly browse all items by specific categories like computer hardware, cell phones, and gaming. Or, if you already have something in mind, search with text or voice input. Better yet, if you’d like to see whether Newegg offers a lower price than a store you’re currently in, scan the barcode for instant results.
A truly exciting feature of the Newegg app is the support of gestures. It seems like many Android apps neglect the functionality of gestures and the ease and efficiency they can provide. For example, on product information pages, gesturing a “C” adds the item to cart, a “W” the wishlist, or a “S” to share it with family/friends.
- Main-page access to frequently updated deals like “Shell Shocker” and “Daily Deals”
- Gesture support streamlines shopping experience
- All purchases are processed through Newegg’s secure servers
- Product details, images, reviews, etc.
Areas for improvement:
- Needs to support apps2SD
- Product images need to be much higher resolution
Conclusion: The Newegg consumer electronics Android app has harnessed the power of Android to enhance the mobile shopping experience.
