Find bargains over your phone with DealNews for Android

by Ian Black

I think the old saying goes — you can’t be too rich or too thin or have too many bargains. Perhaps the economic times are driving the deal-palooza frenzy going on now, but the current shop-'til-you-drop contenders for Android include Groupon, Google Offers and now DealNews.

DealNews delivers online retails bargains. Scrolling tabs across the top let you pick from Newest, Hottest, Features or categories like Computers, Gaming & Toys, Home & Garden and so on. Drill down into a particular listing, and you can either Buy Now — where the app takes you to the retail site and will auto-insert any required coupon code — or Save to push the listing to a favorites section of the app. Share any amazing offers over Facebook or Twitter, or email directly from the listing.

Need more? You can search by keyword, and specify particular product categories and specific retail businesses to browse. DealNews claims you can find more offers over its page in Facebook, its Twitter feed or by browsing its website.

Overall, the app is very straightforward with no bells and whistles. If you go offline, you’ll have to touch Refresh to bring back the list of offers. It might be nice to see some comparison shopping to check how good some of the deals actually are. Nonetheless, the offers do seem like bargains, and this category of apps is pretty hot.

It’s free, so check it out for yourself.
