The Daily App: SaveWorks For Smartphones, Web10:00 AM EST Wed. Nov. 14, 2012
The Internet has been a great resource for finding coupons online and for attracting business with discounts. On the consumer side, one problem has been sifting through the dozens of websites and offers to find the best discount. And for suppliers, the issues include deciding where to post your discounted product to get the most exposure at the lowest cost. Today's Daily App is intended to help solve all these problems.
SaveWorks for Android and iOS is a free app for consumers and businesses that connects bargain shoppers with sellers willing to offer a discount. Working together with a coupon network at the SaveWorks.com website, registered shoppers enter their zip code on the site or on their mobile device and indicate what type of product they're looking for. In theory, a list of vendors and products would appear along with prices and addresses, depending on whether there are product discounts available in the specified region.
The service also is free to businesses, which enter information for the product or service they offer along with geographical data. Those entries then appear as consumer search results. Launched in May, the new service contained no entries for any of the zip codes we entered. Developer SaveWorks, Inc. also offers versions for BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7. The mobile apps also can search by GPS coordinates, business or city name and feature turn-by-turn navigation, automatic phone dialing, reviews and ratings, and a savings tracker, as well as sharing capabilities with Facebook and Twitter.
