App Watch: Staples

With all the recent Windows 8 app development fiascos from major companies (think Dropbox and Twitter), here is a refreshing, refreshing change — the official Staples app.

One look at the app and you would agree that this is the way to develop apps. Not only does the official Staples app comes loaded with features and options, it is one of the best designs ones currently available in the Windows Store. Sign that the developers knew what they were doing.

Before we get to that, here is the official description that explains everything:

“The Staples App brings easy to your Windows 8 tablets, laptops and desktops. So go ahead – redeem coupons and rewards. Compare product prices and features. Check product availability at Staples stores near you. View your order history, update your shopping lists and find the ink and toner you need. And above all, add some easy to your workday.”

Brings easy, indeed!

Long story short, you get access to the complete Staples catalog at touching (get it) distance. You can browse, search and buy for everything from office supplies to computers and electronics. The app also transitions to real life and allowing you to find nearby stores as well as driving directions.

The app makes perfect use of the touch functionality of tablets and touchscreen devices, but the developers have not forgotten traditional keyboard and mouse users.

Now, only if all Windows 8 apps were like this!

With the amount of features on offer, this is the perfect app not just for fans and customers of Staples, but technology fans as well that want to keep tabs on latest products and reviews. The app works on all Windows 8 platforms (x86, x64 and ARM) making it a must download.
