GROUPON Malaysia has launched its official mobile application for Android smartphones, available for download from the Android Market.
Malaysia joins a growing number of Groupon markets worldwide to offer mobile application capabilities via Android devices – Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, United Kingdom, Canada, France and many others, the company said in a statement.
“The Groupon Android app makes it even easier for customers to get their daily Groupon fix,” said Joel Neoh, vice president and general manager of Groupon South-East Asia and India.
“The app allows shoppers to buy, manage and redeem Groupons on the go, bringing the best of their city directly to their pockets no matter where they are,” he claimed.
The new Groupon Android app also allows consumers to browse and purchase daily deals from across Malaysia while on the go. Consumers can also sign up for and access their Groupon User Account data, locate Groupons in real-time through a GPS feature, pay for purchased deals via PayPal and redeem Groupons directly from their mobile device screen, the company said.
Groupon Malaysia recently also introduced a new shopping tab feature on its microsite to further assist consumers in locating deals. The new feature forms an intelligent network of products and services from various categories such as home & garden, electronics, fashion, online shops, toys, accessories, groceries, chemist and many more to provide consumers with a bird’s eye view of its range of offerings.
The new shopping tab feature also highlights some of the best sellers available and further provides consumers with an overview of deals that are expiring soon – allowing them to quickly make a purchase and enjoy greater levels of accessibility and convenience while on the move, Groupon said.
