Disruptive Aussie Startup Taking on Pinterest

Imagine if you could go through magazines or Pinterest, come across something you like and get it on the spot.

Australia's Oneflare.com.au, a leading quotes comparison website has done just that with their new iPhone App. The App is set to revolutionise the way people plan home improvement projects. Instead of merely liking a photo of a home interior, you can have it there and then.

The App includes Oneflare Scrapbooks, the only end-to-end visual tool that allows users to easily access more than 30,000 home design images, plan their home improvement projects and instantly hire reputable suppliers all through the one App.

Oneflare surveyed its customers and found that more than 85% of the respondents feel that Oneflare Scrapbooks is better than Pinterest when it comes to finding ideas specifically related to their renovation project.

"With our new App, busy Australians can now plan, cost up and build their dream home all in the one place. We have more than 40,000 registered local businesses that are ready to help," Oneflare CEO Marcus Lim said.

"We're also taking on the magazine industry. More than half of the respondents find home and garden related magazines expensive and time-consuming when looking for home design ideas," he said.

The survey also revealed users appreciate having real design examples.

"The Scrapbooks are a great way to share ideas and to assist with the creative process. Real comments from real people - not just artificial set-ups for the purpose of magazine photos," Oneflare Scrapbooks user, Brian Catto said.

It has also received the tick of approval from Channel Nine's The Block favourite, Katrina Chambers.

"Oneflare's Scrapbooks is so easy to use! The pictures are a great size and I can easily save the photo, send it to Facebook or add it to my own scrapbook for later use."

The free Oneflare App is now available to download on iTunes here.

An iPad version will be released later this year.
