Released on November 1, Walmart For iPad arrives a full two-years after the release of the popular U.S retail chain’s official client for both iPhone and iPod touch, which originally hit the App Store in the Fall of 2009.
Designed specifically for the iPad’s larger display, the app features Walmart’s new, enhanced shopping experience, allowing customers to search, browse and buy products whenever and wherever they feel like.
Perhaps the most notable aspect of Walmart’s new iPad client, though, (apart from its card-like layout of products), is how the app allows you to create your own virtual shopping list. So, next time you need to grab those home furnishings, taking your iPad along for the ride and being able to tick off the items as you pick them up, might not seem as crazy an idea as you originally thought.
