Walmart App

The second most popular shopping app had a mobile audience reach of 46.1 percent among mobile U.S. audiences in 2019. The Walmart app helps you to shop smart, and assists when you're in Walmart stores. Both Android and iPhone versions include features like browse, search and purchasing Walmart products. You can view rollbacks, create shopping lists, check price and product availability. When you are in a Walmart store you can view aisle locations for items on your shopping list and locate the nearest Walmart store. Moreover, you can find $4 prescriptions and order frills through the apps, track your orders with enabling push notifications and add products to a favorite list using input, text, or by scanning barcodes.

eBay app

With around 183 million active buyers as of 2019, eBay is one of the largest providers for consumer-to-consumer and business-to-business sale services over the internet. With the eBay app, you can buy, sell, and save money. It takes just a few seconds to list items you want to sell and covers a huge variety of categories. Users can save money and do their shopping online by using this app. The eBay app offers top brands in electronics, tech, and cellphones.
