SaleLocator, previously a search engine focused on driving results of retail sales, has launched a fully functional iPhone app that empowers your smartphone with up-t0-date data on all the best deals happening in stores near you.
SaleLocator is free, insert applause here, and it offers tremendously robust coverage of deals happening live, right now, in the retail stores that you love and frequent. In fact, SaleLocator boasts over 175,000 sales each and every day. By utilizing their iPhone shopping app you will be privy to advertised, and non-advertised sales in thousands of retail stores at the push of a button.
SaleLocator utilizes the GPS feature of your iPhone to determine your location and tailor the deals to be relevant to your proximity. You may then search by keyword, proximity, or category to drill in further to your specific interests. There are over 20 categories, and you are able to access detailed information, such as driving directions and expiration date of the item on sale.
An additional feature that I enjoyed was the built in social functionality wherein I was able to share great deals with others via Facebook, Twitter, or email. You are also able to bookmark sales and create shopping lists, although this functionality does require a one-time registration, which is also free.
SaleLocator is a win/win iPhone app. It is free and it aims to save you a lot of dough. Media outlets are shining a spotlight on SaleLocator, and retail stores are taking notice. Hence, SaleLocator has secured relations with many national retail outlets, such as Barnes & Noble, H&M, and more. In fact, more join each day, and thus the value of this app is growing with the growth of their partnerships. In addition to this, SaleLocator employs a research team dedicated to ensuring that all the best deals are available to their growing fan base.
SaleLocator iPhone app [ iTunes Link ] requires iOS 3.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
