Operator – search, shop & buy with our professional shopping experts
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
If you’re like me, you tend to avoid shopping for new things simply because you never know what you want. You’ll spend time meandering through aisles searching for something, then you’ll end up buying things you don’t need just to make the trip worthwhile.
Operator is an awesome iPhone app that puts you in touch with real people who are ready to do the shopping legwork for you.
Whether you’re searching for clothes, electronics, tickets, or something else, chances are you’ll be able to find it and have it delivered.
Concept and Functionality:
The first thing I noticed about Operator, by Operator, Inc., is the highly intuitive layout. I didn’t have any trouble with figuring out how to find my way around the app, which means you’ll spend more time shopping and less time navigating.
When you first open Operator, you’ll be prompted to chat with “WelcomeBot” and provide your name and phone number. Once everything is set up, you can begin shopping for items in categories such as fasion, shoes, beauty, and home.
One of the things I really like about Operator is the way it’s designed. It’s very similar to communicating via text message, so conversations with individual operators (who are real people) seem very warm and personal.
You definitely get the feeling that they’re genuinely helping you find what you’re looking for.
As if Operator couldn’t get any more helpful, some cities offer the ability to have your purchases delivered straight to your door via UberRUSH.
This is made possible due to the fact that Uber’s co-founder is in charge of Operator. Imagine being able to find what you’re looking for and have it delivered to your door in no time flat.
The old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words still holds true, and you can optionally include a photo to send to your operator in order to help them with their search.
Remember that awesome picture on the wall at your friend’s house? Just snap a photo and send it via Operator; they’ll find it for you!
Operator is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. I couldn’t find any in-app purchases, and I’m not sure if a small fee is included with a purchase through the app.
Overall, Operator is the perfect app for anyone who lives a busy lifestyle and doesn’t have time to wander around brick-and-mortar stores.
It’s even better if you live in a city where UberRUSH is supported.
Operator requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
