Whether you’re a busy professional or simply a coach potato, grocery shopping is probably not how you like to spend your spare time. Sure, some people meet their future husband or wife at the local grocer, but for most of us it’s a weekly experience we’d just as soon skip. Peapod, one of the most popular online grocers, is now making it even easier to skip the grocery store and do your shopping from the comfort of your iPad.
The new Peapod iPad app follows the launch of the company’s successful PeapodMobile iPhone app and allows shoppers to do all their grocery shopping and schedule home delivery directly from an iPad. Peapod customers can search for items they need by name or by the products Universal Product Code (UPC) and easily add them to their online shopping lists.
Peapod allows customers to use their iPads to browse through past purchases and add items they’ve previously bought to their new shopping list. The new iPad app also adds some exclusive new features such as the “optimized views” option which allows users to view items on their iPad in a list or grid format.
Customers in one of Peapod’s 23 US markets can use the iPad app to search, order and schedule a grocery delivery directly to their home or office. Customers can sign up for free and delivery fees range from $8 – $10 with a minimum purchase of $60.
