Love the XPLR app from Sam Golbach and Colby Brock, love the exclusive offers and limited addition items, but want to get access to these benefits off your phone and on your desktop or laptop computer where you don’t have the app? In this article, we’ll explain how you can use the app on your desktop or laptop computers.
What is the XPLR app?
The XPLR app is the official shopping app for the apparel brand XPLR. XPLR is the brand created by Sam Golbach and Colby Brock. They each have their own line of merch, which you can access through this app, or through their official shop. XPLR is a shortened way to say “explorer” and the XPLR brand is about adventuring to abandoned places.
What are the features of the XPLR app?
The app connects you up with the XPLR store, and the company offers limited edition items and apparel through the app that they don’t sell on their main website. You can view the items, add to cart, and make your purchase, all through the app on your device.
Users state that it is much more efficient, fast, and easy to use the app than to shop in the XPLR store.
There are not a lot of additional or extraordinary features at this time, though this may change over time as this brand matures.
Can I use the XPLR app on my desktop or laptop?
I don’t like shopping on my smartphone or cell phone, but I really want to take advantage of the special offers and deals on the app!
Or maybe you just really want to buy that shirt, pair of pants, hat (etc) that you saw on the site, but you don’t want to use your phone?
There are many reasons not to use your phone for shopping. You maybe concerned with security, sharing your personal details on unsecured networks, or it is just dang hard to enter in your credit card details into your phone (with your big fingers). It is definitely much more comfortable to use a keyboard and mouse (with a bigger screen) to do online shopping.
Luckily, there is a workaround to be able to use the XPLR app on your desktop computer.
XPLR Desktop Work-Around
You can use the XPLR app on your desktop computer with the help of an emulator. There are emulators for Android apps and iOS apps, but for the purposes of this workaround, it doesn’t matter whether your smartphone is a Android device or an iPhone. You can use the Android version or the iOS version of the app on your desktop, regardless of which version you have on your phone.
This is accomplished through the use of an emulator. We prefer the Android emulators (thus you’ll see that we recommend the Android version of the app from the Playstore).
Android emulators are free, for the most part. We recommend the Bluestacks emulator, especially if you are new to the idea of running an Android app on your Windows PC or Mac. Bluestacks is a high quality emulator that is beginner friendly, though the same could be said for LDPlayer.
Steps to Use XPLR on your Desktop
- Download the Emulator of your choice
- Open Playstore in the emulator
- Download the XPLR app to your desktop device (while in the emulator)
- Use the app like you would normally, browse and shop at your leisure
XPLR Final Details
The XPLR app is still an infant app, and I expect that it will continue to develop over time as the brand develops. For now, it has only been rated a few times, but highly. Playstore notes that it already has 10,000 installs, and a rating of 5.0 (with 570 reviews thus far).
