[prMac.com] Brisbane, Australia - Deal Mob announces the release of Hungry Horse 1.0.15 for iOS. In the current economic climate deals have become a way of life for both retailers and consumers in many industries. New Daily Deal and group buying websites such as Groupon and Living Social are springing up daily and attracting a huge following all over the world.
Deals are most prominent in the food & drink marketplace, with venues offering different promotions to attract existing and new customers alike. Meal deals are typically advertised at the venue itself - limiting potential customers to only those who can physically see the venue. Existing meal deal websites are notoriously unreliable as the information is often out of date since it is not maintained by the venues themselves.
This is where the free Hungry Horse iPhone app comes in to play. Hungry Horse uses GPS technology to find the best active meal deals or drink deals within the local area. Only deals that are available to purchase today are displayed so the customer doesn't have to read all the small print. Meal deals can be sorted in different ways to enable the user to find the best deal in the quickest time i.e. Nearest, Best Value, Top Rated, or Food Type. The user can also filter the display to show Deals that are available by time of day i.e. Now, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, or Drink specials.
Hungry Horse is great for people not familiar with an area such as tourists or business travelers. It allows them to seek out the best deals in the local area on demand as only a local would normally be able to do. Meal deals can also be found on the Hungry Horse website for those who don't have access to an iPhone or iPad.
The Meal Deals displayed in the app are maintained by the venues themselves through the quick and easy to use website ensuring a high quality of information is made available to the customer. It only takes around ten minutes for venues to create an account and upload a deal into the system through the Merchants link on the website. Hungry Horse is a low-cost marketing platform for food & drink venues, charging only a small fixed monthly fee payable by the venue. The cost is equivalent to that of a single average meal deal but, more importantly, we don't take a percentage of your sales like other group buying operators. A free trial period is also available for the first two months of subscription with no contractual obligation.
