These days having an online presence is almost futile if you do not have a mobile presence. With the number of smart phone users increasing faster than the birth rate in the Philippines, it is a crime for an internet company to not have a mobile strategy. Group buying sites are heavily dependent on social media and online traffic are no exception.
Groupon, the big daddy of all group buying sites was first to launch their Android mobile app (available for Android OS v1.6+ devices), the app allows Groupon subscribers to browse unbeatable deals on local adventures, and purchase with the touch of a button (or screen if your Android mobile device lacks keyboard). Groupon clones, of course were quick to follow suit and have launched their own Groupon clone mobile apps which features SMS deal sharing, ability to place upcoming deals, Facebook login, share deals on Facebook, view purchases, notification, simple checkout process, purchase history, PayPal, and even no print coupons (better save them trees!).
Dealies.ph, an up and coming deals aggregator (featuring the best deals from all active group buying websites in the Philippines) servicing the bargain hunting, deal scouring Filipino populace, is not one to miss this “requirement”. Though still a baby in the Philippine group buying scene, Dealies.ph already has its sights on going mobile, and there is no better place to start than with Android–the most open mobile development ecosystem available.
