Wishpot

Wishpot is a social shopping service that lets you collect and and share information about items you find online and in stores. By creating a common space in which users can browse, recommend products, get advice, and find new items they’re interested in, Wishpot seeks to simplify shopping. Wishpot is free, and offers a service nearly identical to the social shopping site Kaboodle. The company allows users to post interesting items in “Wish Lists” that can either be made public or private, where details like product image, price, and other personal notes can be added. New or interesting items can be added to Wishpot from any online source by clicking a browser button that can be downloaded from the company’s website. Interestingly, Wishpot also lets you add items to the site by sending a text message or picture from your mobile phone when shopping in an actual store. The site also boasts a product search across thousands of stores powered by Shopping.com with which you can search products, prices, and reviews. Founded in 2006, the company is backed by angel investors including Adrian Hanauer of Curious Office Partners.
