Groupon - App Review



Groupon have come a long way since their launch in Chicago in late 2008. If you're looking for the 'deal of the day' then, this is an excellent App.

In a nutshell, there are various offers and you get to buy them, thereby getting some great deals.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The first thing is to either allow Groupon to use your current location, or pick a town (in a given country). The home page shows you various 'topics' such as featured, goods, getaways, shopping, or travel. These appear to change, depending on your location and also show the number of times that they have been bought.

In order to 'buy' and of these offers, you will need to log-in, either with Facebook, or create a Groupon account.

You then simply choose the offer you want to purchase, entering a promo code, should you have one. You then receive your voucher. As a rule, the voucher cannot be used before the following day, and other limitations are clearly stated.

You can also access your profile, so as to receive emails for the topics and places that are likely to be of interest to you.

Cost
Both the App and registration are free. Any coupon you purchase can be paid for by Visa, MasterCard, or PayPal.

Indispensability
It's a good way to discover new places to eat (amongst other things).

Dependability
The App is easy to navigate and populated with enticing pictures. There are occasions though when attempting to access further information (such as a restaurant menu) will lead you to a blank page.

Security
The usual caution if logging in with Facebook apply, as well as sharing information.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Try it, you're in for an unexpected treat.
