There are so many similar products on the market these days due to stiff competition, and money is so tight, that you probably want to get 2 or 3 opinions before you venture out on a shopping spree. Particularly if you're thinking of purchasing a big ticket, and I mean anything over $10! Besides, it's so easy to do a little research either on Google or by asking friends who may have heard of the particular item in which you are interested. However, there is a super quick and easier way to get opinions on products, or to share your own thoughts, by using a really helpful app called Ratingly.

Just scan the barcode on any product and rate it. If you have strong feelings about that particular item, then share them with the Ratingly community whose participants are eager researchers like yourself! Additionally, you can follow your favorite users, products or categories so that you stay "in the know" with what is hot, and what is not. You definitely don't want to buy an item that looks good by its packaging, only to take it home and find it really doesn't work or look quite as good as advertised!

So how do you begin to get involved in researching products and sharing your opinion? You need to sign up for Ratingly first thing on opening this product review app. It will request your e-mail and password. Once sign-up is complete, you are taken to the screen where tabs labeled Inbox, Scan a product or Find Products are listed at the bottom, while All Reviews, Me and Others are listed on top. I scanned an Energizer battery pack for iPhone which I had just recently bought. The scan quality was excellent in spite of my shaky hand! Once scanned, there were fields to fill out to describe the item such as Name the Product, Select a Category, Product Brand, Take a Photo of the product and Save. If you wish to review products that other consumers have entered, just navigate to Find Products and enter your item either in the Search field, via the Quick Search Tab or by performing a scan. The review offerings are still few at this point, but more are being added every day by enthusiastic consumers, one of which may soon be you!

The goal of Ratingly is simple just as the app itself is easy to navigate and use. Ratingly wants to help consumers make the best decisions when shopping for any type of item. It has created a community of users like yourself who review products just so long as there is a barcode embedded. Don't shop without knowledge. Use the power of Ratingly to find out the good, the bad and the ugly on the products that you, your family and friends use every day. Stop a shopping disaster before it's too late by researching it. Alternately, provide a good shopping experience for someone else by reviewing an item you absolutely love which may help them make their purchase decision. Oh, and don't forget you are also able to share your opinions on your Twitter account which we all know is one of the best ways to spread the word!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Ratingly is an excellent way to shop smart and share your thoughts on products that you use every day!"
