    At Shopbee, We’re focused on a new way for shopping apps to work–by including the entire shopping experience in the app. This means sharing opinions and photos with friends, sharing what you found, and inviting other to see some great new fashions, foods, and entertainment. We want to fill this missing part of shopping for people: http://www.facebook.com/myshopbee
