Supermarket giant Tesco has launched a shopping app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Tesco has been working with mobile specialists Ribot, who designed and developed the new app.
Once downloaded, Tesco Groceries lets customers who have registered with tesco.com, access their home store’s product range and 'Favourites' - items purchased online or from a Tesco store using a Clubcard.
According to Tesco, customers can log into grocery accounts and add forgotten items to baskest, or start a new order from scratch, checking out securely on the phone or later online.
The updated orders then synchronises from iPhone to computer and vice versa.
"We’re always looking for ways to make life easier for customers. The iPhone app creates a fantastic new way to shop with tesco.com whenever you want, whether you’re adding last minute essentials or starting a new order," said Laura Wade-Gery, CEO for tesco.com.
Available from the Apple iTunes Apple Store, Tesco Groceries is free and requires the iOS 3.0 Software Update or later.
The Tesco Groceries app joins the family of Tesco apps, including Clubcard and the Winefinder, which together the supermarket claims has now reached over one million downloads.
