Good news for the deal hunting Android users. SlickDeals launched their app for Android yesterday announcing the event on their reddit account. So for those of you eager to get started saving money on all kinds of products, you’ll find the link to their app on Google Play at the bottom of this article.
If you are hearing about SlickDeals for the first time, here’s a quick description of what they are all about. The website gathers deals around the web letting you know the best of the deals through your account on their web page or now through notifications on your Android or iOS phone. There are plenty of websites like them, but they are arguably the best.
The basic functionality of the app right now is that you get notifications, or browse the list it generates with the current offers. I you see one you like, the app will provide a direct link to the website offering the deal right in the app, or through you default browser.
Besides that, and more importantly, they offer push notifications with deals that are currently the community’s favorite, letting you know only of the best of their current list. The app also lets the user vote (up or down), comment or add deals right on their phones and comes with a Forums section which lets you talk deal-related things or off-topic discussions with the SlickDeals community.
As of now, the app has seen only a moderate attention on the Google Play Store having only up to 5000 installs, but then again they just posted it on the 4th of April. It currently has a 4 star rating (3.9 to be more precise) from 91 reviews, most of them being a 5 star review.
The most complains they got so far was the lack of a tablet version for the app and the fact that the app doesn’t have landscape.
All-in-all it’s a good-looking app (not a cheap iOS port) to have installed that whatever you’re keeping an eye out for deals, or you let it notify you of products on sale you are interested in (did I mention it lets you set up specific key-words for deal alerts?).
