Google Launches New App for Mobile Deal Hunters
Google launched its own deal-of-the-day website entitled Google Offers after it failed to acquire Groupon for $6 billion last year. Today Google announced that it's bringing its deal hunting service to iOS devices with the official launch of the Google Offers app.
The free app allows users to search for instant savings in map view, and redeem most offers without having to print a voucher. It also sends notifications when new deals are available or saved deals are about to expire.
Google Offers is available for free in the App Store starting today. It's compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The app is only available in the U.S..
Here is a complete list of features via the Google Mobile Blog:
-Instant savings, just around the corner: Quickly discover offers near you in map view or search for deals by category to easily find the right deal for you.
-See & use the deals you want, when you want them: All of your purchased and saved offers are tracked in "My Offers,” for easy access from your iPhone or online.
-Savings made simple: Instantly redeem most offers with your iPhone, without having to print vouchers.
-Never miss a great deal: Get notifications when new deals are available or when a deal that you’ve purchased or saved is about to expire.
