Groupon App Available for BlackBerry and PlayBook

Until we’re able to broadcast the Internet directly into our REM cycle, we have to first spread our reach to additional mobile devices. That being said, we’re happy to announce that the Groupon app is now available for BlackBerry® smartphones and BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablets, making it even easier for customers to access the best daily deals, access Groupon Now!, manage an account, or redeem Groupons on the go.

Offering a seamless buying and redemption process for consumers, Groupon apps for BlackBerry smartphones and BlackBerry PlayBook tablets allow you to:

  • Browse daily deals, Groupon Now! deals, you can view and purchase deals from the city you are in
  • Access your account and sign in to your existing Groupon account to find and organize your library of previous purchases. You can also sign up for a new Groupon account directly through the app
  • Redeem your Groupons by presenting Groupons to merchants directly from your BlackBerry smartphone or PlayBook screen – no printouts required!
  • Map and sort local Groupons in real-time: you can activate the GPS feature to plot Groupon purchases closest to your current location in addition to sorting Groupons by expiration and purchase date
  • Tell your friends about the exciting deals you found by sharing Groupons with your friends through BBM™!

Users who tried it already provided these reviews to be heard on the great WWW:

This app makes wonderful use of screen real estate.

I’m happy that we are starting to see top apps on the PB. Just for that I’m going to buy something on Groupon using my PB.

Good UI, access to all the main Groupon feature, including Groupon now deals along with maps. Like the application, good quality.

This app gives me the ability to download milk. I never even knew that was a possibility. Thanks, Groupon!
