Thrillist Launches JackThreads For iPad App, Offering Men's Fashions At Huge Discounts
One of the most popular online shopping locations for men now has a native app presence on Apple’s tablet. The free JackThreads for iPad app is available now in the App Store. Offering street, skate, surf, and contemporary men’s fashion brands at huge discounts, JackThreads has seen its revenue grow significantly since launching their iPhone app in 2012. Currently, nearly half of the company's revenues now come from mobile. Speaking to TechCrunch, Thrillist CEO Ben Lerer notes that the iPhone app just passed 2 million downloads, and has become a “huge driver” for the business. As a result, it pushes “millions of pageviews and sales sessions.” JackThreads for iPad offers the same deals available through the company’s website and iPhone app. This includes the five to seven brand new sales that launch each day at noon ET, and last for 72 hours. Current promotions include tropical prints by Chor, new arrivals from Rogue and Ben Sherman, and more. All items are typically available for up to 80 percent off the regular price. As someone who has purchased items from JackThreads in the past, I welcome the news of an iPad app. Of course, my wallet may not like it, nor will my closet. The JackThreads for iPad app is available now, as is the iPhone app. [gallery]
