The new era of online shopping is here. The LIKEtoKNOW.it app ups the level of convenience while you’re browsing the Internet. It’s disturbing when you see someone dressed in something you like: a great dress, impressing jeans, hot bikini or so on. You don’t have to ask the author what it is or where to purchase it because you can just scan it with LIKEtoKNOW.it.
Interface — 5/5
It’s highly integrated with Instagram. Even more: the service utilizes Instagram as the main tool for uploading and searching. The service requires authorization, so first, you have to create your account or login with Instagram, if you have already set up the connection.
The interface will seem very familiar for devoted Insta users. It’s hard to imagine someone who will enter this app without preceding Instagram experience. So it will look like something you already know. And it eases the usage.
Content and Features — 5/5
The inner recognition system works quite well. It’s some kind of magic (if you have never been interested in what AI can do now, it’s the great start). The app really can recognize clothes, bags, accessories from different brands. The best analog is Shazam recognizing a song by its recorded fragment. LIKEtoKNOW.it does the same with things.
If you don’t want to deal with screenshots and hope your desired things will be found, you can surf within the app. All the pics featured by LIKEtoKNOW.it are already processed, and there’s a direct link below each. So you don’t have to screenshot them. Just tap the link and do the shopping like you usually do.
The photos within the system are also tagged, so you can browse in the category you like. It may be about the price (special offers, under $50, under $100 and so on), about location (Europe, Brazil, so on), special events (wedding accessories, style advice), specific items (for kids, for pregnancy, for family style, for men, fitness wear), and so on. You can also follow users you like right within the service.
As you can see, most offers are for female users. LIKEtoKNOW.it certainly isn’t a man’s man’s man’s world. The app features a male section, but if you look inside, you’ll find that guys are surrounded by a lot of dressed up girls even there, featured mostly as shiny happy pairs.
In order not to let you forget anything, the service sends you an email after you like something. The email contains the link to the object you liked, some similar pictures, and direct links to online shops where you can buy these items.
Usability — 4/5
Though the app has a brief tutorial at the start, it may be hard for a beginner to make out where Instagram ends and LIKEtoKNOW.it begins. Yet it’s enough to spend two or three minutes to get familiar with it, and the integration becomes a help, no more confusion.
You need to launch LIKEtoKNOW.it first, then launch Instagram (or another service) and take your screenshots. Then the app receives the screenshot you make, compares it to its base and provides the recognition.
Since late August 2018 multiple issues were reported. The app often didn’t react to screenshots users made. Hope it’s a temporary issue, and it’s to be fixed soon.
Compatibility — 5/5
The app works great both with iOS and Android.
