Google Offers is now available for iPhone users in the form of a stand-alone app offered via the App Store. The deals service by Google is essentially a smaller version of Living Social and Groupon, who offer daily deals based on your location.
Mashable reports that the app is only available in the United States right now, with deals in a large amount of major metropolitan areas. Users are able to find nearby offers by using the app’s map view, or searching specific deals by category.
Once they purchase a deal, users are able to track their offers in the “My Offers” section of the application. Deals can actually be redeemed instantly from your iOS device, that way you don’t have to remember to print out and bring your voucher.
According to Venture Beat, the Google Offers app description gives the following reasons for downloading it:
“• Instant savings, just around the corner: Quickly discover offers near you in map view or search for deals by category to easily find the right deal for you.
• See & use the deals you want, when you want them: All of your purchased and saved offers are tracked in “My Offers,” for easy access from your iPhone or online.
• Savings made simple: Instantly redeem most offers with your iPhone, without having to print vouchers.
• Never miss a great deal: Get notifications when new deals are available or when a deal that you’ve purchased or saved is about to expire.”
Mashable reports that Google Offers can be found in the App Store for free and is designed for the iPhone and iPod Touch, though it is compatible with the iPad.
