Gamestation launching iPhone app

Gamestation's new iPhone app allows users to search for games online.

UK specialist retailer Gamestation has launched a new iPhone app to the AppStore today.

The app is available for free and allows new customers the ability to browse titles across all formats, as well as see what the top pre-orders currently are. The app supplies product details, screenshots, user reviews and trailer videos through a gallery system.

Customers who have signed up to a Gamestation account will also be able to sign in to the app and use an express checkout function to make purchases. A GPS function will direct users to their nearest store, should they wish to buy their games in person.

Gamestation has promised that all orders made through the app will be made with the same delivery dates and quality of service that customers might expect from stores or internet shopping.

We know our gamestation customers think about gaming 24/7 – well, if they have an iPhone or iPod Touch, they now they have a way to get their fix whenever they want and wherever they are," said Gamestation's Paul Howes.

"They can use it to find the nearest gamestation store and get their hands on what they want right there and then. Or if they can’t get to a store, they can reach for their iPhone, order away and it’ll be with them within a couple of days!

Woop - an app on an overpriced phone for an over priced store! Though at least the phone doesn't smell like a Tramp's armpit, like my local GameStation does...

I'll stick with Steam and Amazon for my gaming goodness

The big question - and if the answer is "no," the missing killer feature from an app such as this - is: does it offer live stock listings of local stores? It's all very well users being able to "find the nearest gamestation store and get their hands on what they want right there and then," but it all falls down if it turns out that your nearest store sold out of UltraHyped 3 an hour ago.

Unfortunately corporate thinking comes into play....

Management: "Hey, everyone has an iPhone, let's build an app."
More Management "Yeah good idea, we'll make millions!"

as opposed to ...

Management: "Hey, everyone has an iPhone, let's build an app."
Clued up devs "Errr, chances are people will install it, but it'll never get used, and thus is a waste of time, money and energy."
Management: "oh, lets not bother then, just make sure our site is mobile friendly."

Bit-tech with exclusive news??? are you sure you didnt see the app on the store and become the only site to bother writing about it? Its the one thing BIT is lacking which disappoints me, real exclusive news. Please get out more and report insted of copy paste articles from other sites.

Who. Cares.
Enough with this iApp crap. I would rather see news on the new windows mobile 7 or the latest android device.
Although truth be told, I would much rather see news on new hardware or modding or games.
