NearBuy / NearBuy


It is really hard to find the most likable item in the fashion store. Especially, when a shopper wants to see more items which are similar with the one in front of their eyes, there is no possible way to do that excepting going other stores directly.
NearBuy is the smartphone application that finds similar items nearby. By using barcode scanning function and location-based technology, it helps shoppers to easily get the information of similar items near by their current location.
