    The Future of Shopping and the Opportunity for Developers

    Naveed Anwar

    Consumers are using technology to fundamentally change the way they shop. New technology, driven by developers, in mobile, social networking and local commerce, are blurring the lines between online and offline purchasing. Mobile devices, constantly connected to the Internet, are quickly becoming an ubiquitous aspect of the consumer shopping experience. On mobile devices, consumers can find items in their local stores and check their availability, receive proximity based discounts to shops they pass by, barcode scan items to compare prices and look for sales across local competitors and online retailers. What do these shifts in consumer shopping behavior mean for merchants, and how can the mobile developer and entrepreneur communities take advantage of these changes?
