3.Slice: We just discovered a new app that can make our lives easier. As a way to keep track of your online purchases, Slice has helped users to track and organize more than 90 million purchases to date with a total purchase value of $3 billion. How it works is the app pulls information from the electronic receipts in your inbox and finding purchase information for everything you’ve bought online or for which you have an e-receipt, so recall notifications happen without any extra work or thought. They also have a shipping notification feature that lets you know when a package is about to be delivered and Price Drop Alerts notify's you of opportunities to claim partial refunds. They also have a new tool for Recall Alerts that automatically notifies you when an item you've purchased has been recalled by the manufacturer. Slice also automatically match recall information from the Consumer Product Safety Commission with your purchases and alert you when there's a match via a timely push notification. To make it even more effortless, Slice also links the alert directly to the CPSC.gov recall page to provide you with more details on the hazards and what steps you can take. The redesigned Slice apps for Android and iPhone feature a more visual user interface with improved navigation, along with a dedicated tracking section that monitors potential recalls and price adjustments.
