Graduates of the Łódź University of Technology in central Poland have created an intelligent shopping app that has become the most downloaded program of its kind on English-speaking markets.
The graduates are thinking big: they want their Listonic app to go global.
The app displays suggestions based on a user’s shopping history and uses voice recognition technology so consumers can tell their phone what they want to buy.
"Our goal is to create an intelligent list, the best shopping list in the world," said Filip Miłoszewski, one of the team that created Listonic.
He added: “Listonic is currently the best-rated shopping list in online stores and is also the most downloaded application on all English-speaking markets.”
Following Polish- and English-language versions, the app has been translated into six other languages: German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian and Danish.
This summer there are plans to add another 10 languages, including Indonesian and Hindi.
Listonic has so far been downloaded 1.5 million times. It is estimated that it currently has more than 400,000 active users every month, half of whom are from outside Poland.
