We launched a new version of the PriceMe website on Friday evening. Here are some of the highlights:
Search suggestion updates
PriceMe has offered users limited search suggestions for about a year and a half. We expanded this feature a few months ago to also include suggestions for retailers, brands, categories and a combination of brand and category. The new version of PriceMe includes a count for the combination of brand and category. For example, HTC Mobile Phones (15). In addition, the retailer star rating directly appear when searching for a retailer.
Users that first log in using Facebook and then review products can have their review appear in the activity stream on their Facebook wall. This is a great way to share the review with your Facebook friends. Unfortunately, the wall update doesn’t work if users first review and then log in (we’re working on a fix for this problem).
We added a review section to PriceMe. The purpose is to display the latest user and expert reviews.
PriceMe has developed some handy tools for shoppers over the years such as search plugins, widgets and mobile apps. Now you can find these tools in one place on our new tools page. There is a link in the footer.
