Scoutmob Combines the Best of Groupon and Foursquare With the Release of Their New Android Application

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - September 2, 2010) -  Today Scoutmob (www.scoutmob.com) announced the release of their mobile application for the Android platform. Scoutmob is a new and disruptive model in the local flash commerce space, offering free exclusive offers from local merchants upon check-in at their location.

"Over the past few months, we have received daily requests from our fans for an Android version," says Scoutmob Co-Founder Michael Tavani. "We are excited to now be on both the iPhone and Android platforms."

Unlike all other applications in the daily deal space, Scoutmob's platform is entirely mobile and customers do not have to pre-purchase deals -- all curated local deals automatically appear on the mobile device at no charge. Along with the very successful Scoutmob iPhone application, now Android users in all active Scoutmob markets can immediately receive free deals at the best local spots.

Android features include:

  • Access and sort exclusive deals by newest, nearby, and about-to-expire
  • Share deals on Twitter, Facebook and email
  • Participate in Return Perks loyalty program for even more savings
  • Enjoy randomly generated curious local facts

"Over the past year, we have combined the actionable nature of group-buying with the location-awareness of check-ins," says Scoutmob Co-Founder David Payne. "Scoutmob fans love having free deals on their phones and merchants only pay for what matters most -- new customers actually shopping in their stores."
