Often hangs "Gathering products"

I like the idea of this app but the execution is lacking. The app often gets stuck gathering product information (which makes it unusable).

Does Nothing

Share charm "retrieves product info" forever. Good concept, just does not work. Tried multiple products.

Simple and Smart

Digital Folio is the first application that I have found that use Windows 8 Charm in a very convenient way. For the first time you can shop and look for best deals at the same time without leaving the page where you found a good deal or what you think is a good deal.

Found the Charm

Really nice! In Chrome, there is an option to re-launch the browser in Windows 8 (instead of using Chrome in the desktop mode). After I did that, there was the option to share with Digital Folio.

Was excited about it but...

in my testing, it never found anything from more than one site. I even went to newegg, grabbed a logitech model number (clicked share and verified that DF found it on newegg (but DF said it couldn't find it anywhere else), went to amazon entered the same model number and manually found the same product and clicked share and now DF says it can only find it on amazon! Great idea, doesn't seem to be fully baked yet...

Not Functioning

Revising my last review: Its working much better now and stable. Now for the ways we can improve it. It would be nice if when I pull up the price for something on newegg it would also grab the price of other websites. I tried with on SSD drive and it only adds newegg but not tigerdirect. also would be nice to be able to make folders for folios so that my computer repair company can organize and keep track of online prices and be able to change our prices accordingly. Thanks

Can't get it to work

I'd want to believe this will be a great app but I've never been able to get this to work for me using the Share charm. It just sits there spinning for ever. I've waited upto 5 mins several times without any result.

First item I scanned was a DVD that was just purchased at WalMart but the AP couldn't find the item. Also, the settings aren't easily accessible.
