Deal Drop App Featured in Wired Magazine as Bargain Hunting Tool
November 27, 2012 in Lifestyle
[prMac.com] Sacramento, California - Deal Drop, the mobile app that helps shoppers save time and money by bringing the latest discounts directly to them, has been selected by Wired Magazine to be featured in its annual guide of recommended apps.
Deal Drop was one of only 300 apps chosen to be included in Wired Magazine's App Guide in print and online, and earned a score of 8 out of 10. In the "Deals and Bargains" section, Wired liked how local deals could be shown for multiple cities, and how deals were organized and searchable. The app has also been featured by iPad Today, Appolicious, Droid Nerds, Locker Gnome, and other publications.
"I'm excited and honored to have the Deal Drop app be recognized by Wired Magazine, an authority in the world of technology," said Darren Phillips, creator of Deal Drop. "Since the app debuted in 2009, I've continually updated and improved it with two goals in mind: to save you money and make finding the best deals easier."
With Deal Drop (formerly iDealyzer), consumers now have all the best daily offers in one place. Users can save 40%, 50%, 60% or more on popular products from local and national stores. This free app is available for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
Deal Drop puts thousands of daily deals at users' fingertips from Woot, Groupon, Living Social, Tanga, and more. Customize the list from 80 national and 4,500 local daily deals to see just the most relevant coupons.
The app also delivers money-saving discounts from popular shopping destinations such as Target, Buy, eBay, Newegg, and more. As an optional feature, users can choose to be notified when there are new discounts from their favorite stores.
Designed for anyone seeking a bargain, Deal Drop helps people save on brand name items such as computers, apparel, travel, gifts, jewelry, electronics, and more. Shoppers can view top deals and order them directly from their mobile device.
"With Deal Drop, you can sit back and let huge discounts come right to you," Darren Phillips said. "The app scours the top daily deal and shopping websites to help you save money on brand name products online, in stores, and where you live."
As daily deal websites and online shopping continues to grow in popularity, it can be difficult for bargain hunters to find the best deals or keep up with the latest discounts. To solve this problem, the Deal Drop app was created for shoppers who love deals - but do not love having to read all those emails. Instead, this innovative app collects all the most valuable coupons in one convenient place.
Many online deals are valid only for a limited time - 24 hours or as little as 30 minutes. However, with the Deal Drop app, shoppers no longer have to worry about missing out on money-saving discounts. The app brings the latest savings directly to them, ending the time-consuming hassle of looking through all the daily deal websites and emails. This lets people see deals sooner so they can grab products before they sell out or discounts before their expire.
In addition, the app allows users to easily let friends and family know about the latest bargains through email, Facebook, Twitter, and more.
