Argos - There's an app for that

Argos has launched a new application for Apple mobile devices, which will allow customers to browse more than 25,000 products on the move.

The new app will offer information on more than 25,000 products, a price and stock checker updated in real time, a store locator and user-generated comment with regularly updated customer reviews.

Multi-channel sales at Argos are now heading towards more than 50% of all company sales, with Check and Reserve accounting for 22%.

Argos head of multi-channel developments David Tarbuck commented: "Developing a mobile application was the next natural technology step for Argos to ensure we remain a significant shopping destination for the modern day consumer. In December 2009, visits to Argos.co.uk from Apple mobile devices topped 750,000 - so we know the demand is there from Apple users for us to provide this customer demographic with a mobile solution for shopping with Argos."
