[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Kima Labs today is proud to announce Deal Flow, a new free app for iPhone and iPod touch that helps solve deal overload, by creating a personalized deal feed that lets people browse the deals they care about, all in one place on their iPhone. Deal Flow is available today as a free app in the iOS App Store.
The past two years have seen an explosion of deals and offers. Over 200 companies now offer Groupon-style local deals, dozens of websites offer time-limited "private" sales, while hundreds more traditional online retailers have stepped up promotion of their own discounted merchandise.
The result is a new opportunity for consumers to save money while discovering products and services. But this opportunity places a burden on consumers, who face a torrent of marketing email and dozens of websites to check. A dedicated few do the work of deal finding, but an increasing number simply tune out and miss offers they'd love.
Deal Flow solves the deal overload problem. Anyone with an iPhone or iPod touch can create a personalized feed with just the offers they want to see. First, Deal Flow continually scours sites across the Web, from Groupon to Target to Woot, digging up thousands of new online and local offers each day. Then, these offers are presented in one easily browsable iPhone app that adapts to each user's interests.
Deal Flow gives users full control over the offers they see, without requiring arduous setup or long surveys. Each user's Deal Flow starts out with the most popular local and online offers--and then gets refined as users block less interesting deals and sites. The result is a personalized Deal Flow, a store with myriad departments, but tailored to a single shopper.
