Groupon Has A New Website With Features Aimed At Making It Easier Than Ever For Customers To Shop Groupon's Marketplace Of Deals. (Photo: Business Wire)

Highlights of the app updates include:

  • Local Explorer – The Groupon experience now follows customers as they travel, whether a city away or to a different country. The apps now automatically detect when a mobile customer’s location has changed and send a notification when they are in range of Groupon’s local deals. Inside the app, local deals are automatically selected based on the customer’s current location rather than just their home town.
  • Enhanced UX – Like the website, the search bar has been elevated to the top of every screen to provide quick access. The redesigned iPad app also sports a new home page that, like the website’s new home page, presents personalized collections of deals to explore.
  • Deal “Favoriting” iPad customers can now “favorite” deals to save them for quick and easy future reference by selecting the new heart button on the deal pages.
  • Additional Markets – The iPad expansion now includes 12 additional markets: Austria, Chile, Colombia, French Canada, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia and Thailand.

With these faster, easier and more personalized ways for consumers to explore and buy deals, Groupon is kicking off its five-year birthday celebration. The party continues all month with special offers and a brand new Gift Shop on the website and in the iPhone and Android mobile apps. Just in time for the holiday shopping season, the Gift Shop features unique collections and gifts from local businesses, Groupon Goods and Groupon Getaways.
