Walmart Launches New Retail Apps
Walmart this week launched new retail apps for iOS, including separate apps for the iPhone and iPad.
The iPhone version includes such features as voice recognition, budgeting tools and coupons, while the iPad edition boasts touch-optimizsed shopping and a browse-my-store feature.
"Today, mobile allows us to have a similar personal relationship with our customers that Sam Walton had with his customers 50 years ago when he opened the first Walmart store," Gibu Thomas, Walmart's senior vice president of mobile and digital, said as part of the announcement. "We can greet each of our customers by name, guide them through our stores, and give them product recommendations and real-time savings — all from their mobile devices."
