App List: Joe Horan of TheBuyFly

“App List” is a characteristic where we request ecommerce professionals to record the apps they’ve installed in their phones, and let’s why they use them. With this setup, we corresponded with Joe Horan, owner and operator of TheBuyFly.com, an ecommerce website that gives iPhone and iPad cases.

Horan began the business while in college at Indiana University, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice. He’s handled nearly all aspects of his business since its inception in 2007. His interests lie within supply management, logistics, and search engine optimisation, where he serves as a consultant for other ecommerce companies.

It’s an wonderful time saver and allows me see where I might need to reduce spending for the month or week. It’s a terrific way to keep your finances in check.”
