[prMac.com] New York City, New York - BiteHunter, the first real-time search engine for dining deals, announces the release of its newest free mobile app for the iPhone, BiteHunter 1.3. After launching its first app in June 2011, BiteHunter utilized its user feedback to create a more user friendly interface, as well as add multiple features to increase functionality and more than 200 sources to increase deals shown across the country. BiteHunter provides more deals in real-time than any other player.
BiteHunter 1.3 caters to nationwide consumers and gives users the ability to locate convenient dining deals, specials and information in real-time. In addition to a revamped user interface and design, the app now features a calculator to show amount saved on each deal, the option to connect via Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare to save and share more efficiently, and additional filters for an easy-to-use search engine. With more than 200 sources being added, the app also allows users to personalize preferences to locate deals for your favorite types of cuisines and to save deals for use at a later time.
BiteHunter's new version also includes a "Bite Now" feature that shares limited-time offers from companies such as Groupon ("Groupon Now") and LivingSocial ("LivingSocial Instant"). These features of the mobile app are available only with BiteHunter.
"Reviewing our user feedback gave us the power to update and create a newer and better version of our already successful mobile app," said Gil Harel, CEO and co-founder of BiteHunter. "BiteHunter now reaches a wider audience with more dining deals and more filter search results. Our resource is built for consumers, so better serving them is always our end goal."
BiteHunter scavenges the web for all of the best deals and information that restaurants are promoting on sources such as Twitter, Facebook, blogs, websites, newsletters, daily deal sites and more - and compiles it in one easy-to-navigate website and mobile app. Its search capabilities allow consumers to find dining deal listings based on anything from location, time of day and specific kinds of food, among other filters.
