Tecca Apps: Buying gadgets made easy

There’s always a lot of news around about apps for mobiles and just recently we’ve brought you details of the new Napster App for iPhone and described how Apple is now allowing Google Voice Apps for iOS devices again. Now there’s some good news for all of you who are interested in buying gadgets, with the news of a startup called Tecca.

Tecca launches today with both an Android and an iPhone app which aim to take the worry and indecision out of buying a new device or gadget by giving you all the information you might need. Ben Parr over on Mashable says how the apps will give users reviews, prices and purchasing options available. Tecca calls itself a “virtual concierge” which sounds like a pretty good description of its services.

Ross Levinsohn, chairman of the company says, “Our goal with Tecca is simple: help inspire consumers to make confident decisions about personal technology and electronics, whether they’re purchasing new products or making the most of the devices they already own,” and the three focus areas that Tecca uses are product marketplace, product discovery and product research.

The article on Mashable points out that Best Buy is very much prevalent on the apps, which is not unexpected as it’s a company investor, but that Tecca also incorporates other merchants. The company also aims to launch a PC and tablet app sometime this year. For more on this go to mashable.com.
