SaleLocator Launches Free Location-Based Android App to Help Bargain Shoppers Find Whats On Sale In Stores Nearby(June 28, 2011)
Valhalla, NY (PRWEB) June 28, 2011
Extending its mobile presence for bargain shoppers on the go, SaleLocator (salelocator.com), a shopping and sales search engine, today announced its new Android app. The SaleLocator Android app, which helps local shoppers find what is on sale in retail stores nearby, is now available for free in the Android Market under the Shopping category.
"With the SaleLocator app running on the two leading mobile platforms, we have the opportunity to deliver our local in-store sales information to more shoppers, said Michael Falkson, co-founder and CEO of SaleLocator. Although we find that our mobile users have much shorter sessions than web users, they use SaleLocator more frequently. iPhone users access the app more than three times a day which is double the typical usage of other Lifestyle apps.
Like the SaleLocator iPhone app, the SaleLocator Android app provides the largest database of in-store local sales nationwide. Future updates will be made to both platforms simultaneously. The Android app features include:
- Find in-store sales: Search by Proximity, Category, Keyword or Mall and in a list or interactive Google Maps view.
- 20+ retail categories: Explore nearby sales in categories such as Clothing & Apparel, Furniture, Health & Beauty and more.
- Detailed sale info: Click on a sale for maps, driving directions, merchant contact information and offer expiration date.
- Promotion sharing: Share sales with just a few taps via email, Facebook and Twitter.
- My Sales and Sales Alerts: Bookmark favorite sales and sign up for regular email updates of nearby sales.
SaleLocator reaches beyond the big metro areas to offer relevant sales data in all U.S. markets without the hassle of visiting multiple sites or circulars, lengthy sign-up processes or coupon codes.
Shoppers can search SaleLocator for local brick-and-mortar retail sales by keyword, location and through one of 20 possible SaleLocator categories including Clothing & Apparel, Furniture, Health & Beauty, Sports & Fitness, Toys and more. SaleLocator lists on average more than 275,000 local in-store sales each day from nearly 1,000 retailers, including 38 direct national and regional retail partners.
A nationwide, local retail sales search engine and iPhone app, SaleLocator offers the largest collection of in-store sale information to help local bargain hunters find the best ongoing sales near them. Founded in 2010 by Michael and Udi Falkson, SaleLocator is owned by Hello Hi Technologies, Inc. SaleLocator today is providing local shoppers an average of 275,000 sales per day through partnerships with a growing list of retailers and its proprietary retail sale sourcing process.
