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.
