[prMac.com] Milton Keynes, United Kingdom - With Daily deal sites like Groupon and Living Social offering deep discounts, it is not a surprise that people are flocking to the deal websites in droves.
Users signing up for these sites soon find out that they may be overwhelmed with lots of emails from different deal sites. Most of them are deals from their local area but not from services they care about. That is why Emityme Apps launched the iPhone App, My Daily Deal which lets the user control what kind of deals he/she wants to be notified about.
My Daily Deal which can be downloaded on the Apple App store this now, will allow the user select from over 180 US cities to view deals from. The user can also select from 9 categories of deals, including Activities and Events, Beauty and Wellness and Travel. So now the user can say goodbye to the Spa deals he/she cares nothing about.The user can then subscribe by email to receive notification of deals from one city in the category chosen.
The app will show deals for the city and category that was selected. The application aggregates deals from all the major daily deal websites including Groupon, Eversave and KGB Deals. Living Social which is the second largest site after Groupon is noticeably missing due to the restrictions the site has placed on daily deal aggregators.
The developer of the app, T. Abayomi says that won't affect the quality of deals offered through the app. "Living Social accounts for about 17% of the U.S daily deal space, so we should be okay with not having to show deals from the site. We have the opportunity to work with other providers that make up 83% of the market so we feel that is a good deal. Moreover, the best deals come from the smaller sites with a more personal relationship with the small businesses so we are open to collaboration from any of the sites that feel we can add value to their services." Mr. Abayomi says.
With the My Daily Deal app one can buy a deal on the go by adding a link to the daily deal site where the deal can be purchased. If a user can't be bothered using thier phone to make purchases, the deal can be sent as an email reminder to buy later. But the user beware, it is called a daily deal so it may be long gone.
