Walmart releases new app to help find the perfect gift

UNDATED, AR (KAIT) – Walmart has released a new Facebook app promising to help you find the perfect gift for the holiday season.

The app page claims it will help you find "the right gift every time," using data from your friends' Facebook accounts to recommend a gift based on their interests.

Walmart Public Relations says the @WalmartLabs social networking unit in the heart of Silicon Valley recently formed the new app.

Gift options range from music and books to games and electronics. Shopycat not only recommends gifts from Walmart.com and Walmart stores, but also recommends gift ideas from other sites including RedEnvelope, Barnes & Noble and ThinkGeek.

Find out how Shopycat works and visit the Shopycat Facebook Page for more information.
