New York, New York – August 22, 2012 - Gilt.com, the innovative online shopping destination, today announced the availability of the redesigned Gilt on the Go App for iPhone and iPod touch. The app features an all-new look and feel, updated product detail pages, and the ability for users to access their Wait List for the first time on mobile.

The new Gilt on the Go App creates a seamless Gilt.com shopping experience where members can shop all of their favorite items with the speed and simplicity they have become accustomed to on Gilt. 

New features include:

• Gilt Color: The Gilt Color feature is an inventive way for customers to shop by focusing their iPhone or iPod Touch camera on any color in order for products of a matching color to be returned.

• All New Look & Feel: Large imagery on every page; more intuitive navigation.

• Wait List Support: Members can now access their Wait List for the first time on mobile. In addition to showing available and unavailable items, the Wait List also recommends similar items for Sold Out products, which is a new feature for Wait List.

• Members-Only Sales: Mobile-exclusive sales will now be open to members only. Other users will be able to see the sale, but will not be able to view the Product Listing or Detail Pages without signing in.

• Speed and Performance Enhancements: The app is speedier all around. Gilt customers on the go are able to sign in and purchase quickly at 12:00pm EST with a heightened factor of entertainment.

• Updated Product Detail Pages: Large images show off Gilt products more clearly than before; more prominent "Share" button to allow users to tell their friends and family about the best deals Gilt has to offer.
