App Maker Treehouse Mobile is Making Local Offers Easy to Find
Everyone loves a good deal, but discovering local deals through sites like Groupon and LivingSocial can be a pain. Dallas-based app maker Treehouse Mobile is taking the pain out of finding deals in your neighborhood.
"We never make anything we wouldn't want ourselves", says founder JW West, "daily deal sites don't make money on every deal and 99% of deals are never easy to find. It's a painful process to first pull up Groupon's site, narrow it down to my city, and then wade through so many offers that aren't anywhere near me."
PennyPincher works by using your smart phone's built in GPS functionality or zipcode to search all major deal sites near you. It then returns a full map display of stores around you offering deals. You can share, buy, or save deals for review later. The app searches more than 20 daily deal sites in a manner of seconds.
PennyPincher 2 is available now on the Apple App Store for $1.99. For more information, visit http://www.pennypincherapp.com. For more information on Treehouse Mobile, visit http://www.treehousemobile.net.
