What is Maybe*?

Maybe* a movie. from Maybe* on Vimeo.

Introducing Maybe* - a new social shopping app that helps you decide what to buy.

Maybe* is designed for those moments when you’re not quite ready to “buy now”. When you’d like to look around, ask friends for their opinions, save for later or see the item in store.

With Maybe* you can shop anywhere, online or in-store, save all of the things you like in one place, share with friends for feedback, comments and suggestions, and decide what to buy. Watch this movie to find out more.
