Slickdeals Launches Official iPhone AppPush Notifications Allow Users to Receive Alerts for New Frontpage Deals (December 18, 2012)
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Slickdeals (www.slickdeals.net), the largest community-based deal sharing site in the country, today released its official iPhone app. The app offers full access to Slickdeals' Frontpage, Local and Popular deals pages as well as 18 forums where users can participate in discussions about Product Reviews, Tech Support, Finance, Games and more.
The Slickdeals app takes advantage of a number of iOS features for deal hunters. Push notifications enable users to receive alerts when new deals appear on the Frontpage. The Local Deals page uses location services to accurately determine relevant deals for users on-the-go. The Slickdeals app also allows users to browse Local Deals on a map view to identify deal proximities from a number of local deal providers such as Groupon and LivingSocial.
Similar to the full site, the Slickdeals app opens up to the Frontpage where the best user-vetted deals can be found. Users who are logged in to their Slickdeals accounts can browse, vote on and comment on deals directly from their iOS devices. When users are ready to purchase a deal, they can click on the "Go To" button and users will be redirected to the merchant's site.
"The Slickdeals app has been long overdue, but this is an app we're proud to have taken our time creating," says Bryant Quan, Slickdeals CEO. "We have built this app around the savvy Slickdeals user who wants access to the best deals whenever and wherever they may be."
The Slickdeals iPhone app is now available for download at the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/slickdeals-mobile/id584632814). The Slickdeals team is currently developing an Android app that will be available in early 2013.
Founded in 1999, Slickdeals.net is a free, user-driven deal sharing site where consumers collaborate and share information in order to make the best shopping decisions. Slickdeals hosts 18 forums where users interact to share accurate and the most up-to-date information on online shopping deals. Slickdeals prides itself on being user and community focused, never allowing paid placement for front page deal listings.
