Woolworths App for Android
6 September 2011: Woolworths today launched the Woolworths App for Android that will give customers a more effective and efficient way to do their grocery shopping. This follows the recent and overwhelming success of Woolworths App for iPhone which has already been downloaded by more than 670,000 Australians.
From today, customers with Android devices can download the Woolworths App for free1 by searching for the word “Woolworths” in the Android App Marketplace.
Has Fakira, Woolworths Innovation Program Manager, said; “Following the overwhelming response to our iPhone App, which was downloaded by 670,000 Australians, we are excited to announce the launch of our Android app.
“Android is Google’s smartphone platform which is used by many major phone manufacturers and millions of customers across Australia so it made sense to extend our app to these other smartphone users.”
“Already iPhone users have been telling us the new Woolies app is making their trips to the supermarket quicker and made navigating the aisles simpler. I’m confident Android customers will find the new app to be just as useful,” said Mr Fakira.
Customers can personalise the app to their local store with exclusive Everyday Rewards member offers and weekly catalogue specials. The app will make it easier to navigate through Woolworths supermarkets with an aisle ordered shopping list. Customers can also add items to a smart shopping list with a barcode scanner, access to hundreds of recipes and much more.
Key features available on the Woolworths App for Android include:
• Store Finder: Find your nearest store via GPS, save a preferred store, see store details, opening hours and services of each supermarket e.g. Liquor, Seafood and other facilities.
• My Specials: Exclusive offers for Everyday Rewards members and fuel savings vouchers.
• Shopping lists: Create, edit and save shopping lists that will appear in the aisle order of your preferred supermarket. Also share shopping lists via email.
• Product Finder: Search for products in your preferred store by name or category, scan the barcode and add them to your shopping list.
• Weekly catalogue: Display weekly catalogue specials currently available in your preferred area.
• Recipes: Access to over 800 recipe ideas and add recipe ingredients to shopping lists.
Note to editor: The Woolworths Android App is compatible with version 2.2 and above and has been optimised for use on the most popular handsets within Australia.
