Hi Product Hunt! Thank you @benlang for your support! I’m Walter and I founded GIST to solve a big problem: Getting Word-of-Mouth recommendations online. Right now, we have to rely on review sites or, worse, advertising, to discover products. We’re looking at it in a different way: GIST visualizes what you and friends have actually bought. No stars, thumbs-up, or comments — just seeing what people you trust have really purchased while making it easy and rewarding to share what you’ve found online. This solves the biggest problem facing online product and content discovery: Trust. Core features: - See what you buy in one place — we have over 160+ Stores, Amazon, Square, Shopify PLUS Netflix (!) integration. Products are frictionlessly captured and presented via gmail and direct integrations. - See your impact on others — when a friend buys something you’ve shared on GIST, you’ll both get notified — Now you can get recognized for your expertise and famous for your taste. - It’s your data! Every purchase on GIST is 100% private and we will never sell your data to anyone. Right now, you already give away your personal shopping information to other sites — We're giving it BACK to you so you can decide what to share and what to keep for yourself. Other neat things: - All images shoppable — no more broken links or pins! - Platform agnostic — Product collections (“GISTs”) can be shared and viewed where you already communicate (iMessage, WhatsApp, Web-widget) - Mobile-first — looks amazing on your phone (and pretty decent on desktop) Features coming soon: - Advanced computer vision treatment on product images — now even your vacuum cleaner will be Instagram-worthy! - You tell us! What would you want to do using GIST?

Congratulations!! Literally the product I feel like my friends and I have been missing for years. Looking forward to learning more!
Love the design. Neat app for me. thanks
Pros - smooth UI, intuitive. Assume it lifts conversion. Its playful and at its core allows for meaningful product recommendations. Cons: no Android.
Great UX and is something that's missing from the modern shopping experience. WoM is key for brands and ecomm has inexplicably been less social than it could be. Needs to be on Android too!
