Online PR News – 08-June-2011 – – New York, NY â€“ June 7, 2011 â€“ Taap It (http://taap.it) to officially launch on 6/15 after a successful beta launch under code name Social Listing
â€śWhen I want to sell something, I generally always use eBay or Craigslist, but usually the process takes time, I donâ€™t get to meet the person Iâ€™m selling to (or buying from), and I canâ€™t list from my smartphone,â€ť said Rip Empson, Editor at TechCrunch. â€śWhich is why Iâ€™ve become intrigued by Social Listing, a two-month old startup that launched at Disrupt NYC last week.â€ť
Social Listing, beta code name of Taap It, is one of the startups that got the most attention at TechCrunch Disrupt Startup Alley last week. Located in Midtown Manhattan, 2-month-old Taap It builds location-based mobile applications for iPhone and Android with a singular goal: to connect local buyers and sellers better, faster, and more social via mobile devices.
â€śItâ€™s completely simple to use, solves a problem, and thereâ€™s no mystery about why this could be a blockbuster,â€ť said Andy Green, Editor at The Technoverse Blog. â€śWith Social Listingâ€™s app and perhaps three or so clicks, you have taken a picture of your object, embedded geo-data with the image, and then automatically published it on Social Listingâ€™s mobile siteâ€ť.
Whether you want to sell a used car or sublet your apartment, Taap It offers a simple, fast and free way that can get the job done within a few clicks. Itâ€™s classified advertisements, reinvented on your phone.
â€śIt is so fast and easy to use,â€ť said Duy Huynh, Product Manager at Taap It. â€śTaap It turns those boring classified ads into more social, fun, and most importantly â€“ instant local purchases.â€ť
Via Taap It, you will be able to find nearby hot classifieds from your phone with a few taps. All classifieds are sorted by distance from where you are. Once you see something you like, you can tap to call or email the seller immediately.
â€śTaap It gives us the power of immediate purchase,â€ť said Duy Huynh. â€śWhen I buy something, I want to buy it right now from people who are within 500 feet from me. Local newspapers couldnâ€™t do it. Craigslist couldnâ€™t do it either. Taap It will completely change how we browse and shop locally.â€ť
Posting an ad is also quick and easy. Take a photo of the item you want to post, whether you want to sell a used TV or rent a room in your apartment, enter some information, and instantly share with nearby Taap It users, Facebook, and Twitter.
The official Taap It app will available on both iPhone and Android on June 15, 2011.
