Fantastic Finds: A Review

Imagine an Instagram full of awesome shopping finds, filled to the brim with sparkly jewelry and colorful shoes. Now, let me introduce you to Finds, aka my new favorite app.

Finds is an app that can best be described as an Instagram you can shop from. You post a photo of your shopping 'finds', and your followers can then 'Love' and comment on the items!
The extremely kind people behind this innovative app contacted me about a month ago to try Finds out and I did, and I loved it!

My favorite things about Finds:
  • The sense of community is fantastic! Everyone is always 'Loving' each others finds.
  • Discovering new people to follow is easy as pie!
  • Another easy as pie feature? Finding items to Love.
  • The posting process is easy and quick! (I could totally make a joke here but I'm gonna take the high road. This is a grownup blog.)
  • The filters are super pretty.
  • Find another user's item you have to have? Press 'Buy' and it will take you to where you can go purchase the item!
  • It is honestly so hard to describe why I love it, like Instagram, you know? It's just great.

Some little things I think the app could add:
  • Timestamp - I'm so used to seeing the timestamp on the upper right hand corner on Instagram that I keep looking up and expecting to see the time of posting when I'm on this app
  • More filters - I use Afterlight to edit all off my iPhone photos, but I rarely notice anyone using the filters. Maybe adding more of a selection could improve upon that.
  • A way to report spam commenters. I've seen a few girls comment on follows asking for follows on almost everyone's pictures. And there are some people have full, unrelated conversations in the comments section.

Follow me on Finds by searching under 'Users' for Paige Whitney and clicking my pretty face. Show me some love, go 'love' your favorite item on my profile!

I am currently in a contest on Finds for whoever gets the most 'Loves' on an item. It would mean the world to me if you would go support me!

Comment down below with your profile name so I can check your Finds out! :)

Finds is in no way compensating me for this post. All opinions are my own.
