Save on the Products you Love with Upside

 photo Upside_zpskciwuldi.jpgThere are many ways to search for a good deal on the items you want, whether searching through the Sunday paper, clipping coupons, or websites such as Amazon or eBay, but these methods are very often time-consuming and sometimes fruitless.  Even with mobile devices, finding a bargain may require you to install several apps, possibly even on a brand-by-brand basis or through many individual companies.  An online retailer may not always have what you are hoping to find, but Upside Commerce exists to help you save money in a much more convenient and timely way.  Simply by linking your Upside account with existing social media, you can find all the discounts that once required much more effort or the use of many different mobile apps.  Upside is a quick, paperless option that works with a large range of major brands at any store that accepts coupons.  Online retailers can be cheap, but Upside can give you discounts in real time while you are out shopping, even on items that are already on sale.

We store a lot of information on our various tech devices, from pictures to videos to documents and many other files.  We also share these many things to a number of different social media sites and personal websites and keep them there to access later.  We may have different photos on a desktop, tablet and smartphone, while we use each of these devices at different times to post anything that interests us.  This can all get complicated and lead to a lot of time spent going from program to program on any number of different tech devices to access our files.  Fortunately, there is ZipCloud, a Cloud storage platform that allows you to securely store, stream, and share your media content online.  The app’s creators tout it as one library for all your media where you can import all your movies, documents, music, photo and home videos in a unique place.  It is a media library in the cloud, where it is faster and easier to enjoy your media anywhere and share it with friends.
