Google launches Android app for Google Offers

Google has been hard at work getting their daily deal service, Google Offers, up and running over the previous couple months. For those of you who haven’t heard of daily deals sites (seriously, who hasn’t by now?), these sites offer local goods and services at a steep discount, usually at least 50% off. Google Offers is now available in 42 metro areas and is expanding at a very rapid pace.

Every good Google service needs an Android application, and Google Offers is the latest to join the lengthy list of Google Android apps. Google has released an Offers application on the market that allows you to browse, purchase and redeem deals right from your Android smartphone.

Google has been making a pretty significant push into overhauling its core applications to match the beautiful design of the upcoming Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS update, and Google Offers certainly benefits from this design push. Offers brings the same design aesthetics we’ve seen from the new Google+, Google Docs and Google Reader application updates. In short, Offers is pretty slick looking, and users of Google’s service will certainly be pleased in both the aesthetics and functionality of the new Offers application.

If you haven’t done so already, you may want to head over to the Android Market to download the Google Offers app. If you don’t live in one of the 42 already-live Google Offers markets, fret not; deals will likely be coming your way very soon.

Once you download the application, hop back here and give us your thoughts on the app by leaving a comment below.

    The app is nice but I don’t see too much difference from the Google Shopper app that already used Google Offers within it any differences anyone? Otherwise I love Google Offers I def run into some great deals and even freebies every once in a while

      It’s the new thing. Google’s now into ‘app fragmentation’.

      Honestly, I’ve never used the shopper app. You’ve used both (I hope). What’s different? :)

        Shopper works alot like the regular Google search when you click on “Shopping” it has a barcode scanner and you can search for deals around the net, it also includes Google Offers it has today’s offer which is like the national Google Offer then it has nearby offers which actually uses the location services and Google maps app and shows you a map of your surrounded area and wherever there are offers in your area a red tag shows up in that spot and you can tap on it and it shows you the offer.

    It didn’t come up when I searched the market from my Droid. Had to use the QR code. Too bad the closest participating city is 4 hours away.

    • Dustin Earley

      This. Closest city is like two hours away.
