“With the inundation of fragmented mobile shopping apps, we’re excited to offer the first all encompassing, unbiased deal and personalized shopping experience to the Android and iPad app environments,” said Norman Fong, CEO and Co-Founder of BuyVia.
San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
BuyVia, today announced the release of its new geo-local daily deal feature which, for the first time, provides the ability to receive, not only the best quality, but also the most extensive amount of curated daily deals within a 10 mile radius of the consumer’s immediate location. Based on a quality content algorithm, BuyVia delivers the best daily deals from well-known sources, including Groupon, LivingSocial, Restaurant.com, Goldstar, Gilt City, etc. Shoppers can now set product, vendor and retailer preferences and, in real time, automatically get personalized deals sent to them. BuyVia also released its Android and iPad apps which link shopping searches, preferences and the best curated deals across all devices via the Cloud. Android, both smartphone and tablet, iPhone, and iPad owners can now easily find quality products at the best price both online and in-store while also syncing their search history and shopping preferences across their smartphone, tablet and laptop. The Android version has all the features and functionality of the iOS version, a unique trait among shopping apps.
“With the inundation of fragmented mobile shopping apps, we’re excited to offer the first all encompassing, unbiased deal and personalized shopping experience to the Android and iPad app environments,” said Norman Fong, CEO and Co-Founder of BuyVia. “Rather than having to follow deals from multiple streams and emails, consumers can now find the best products and deals possible—whether they’re found online or around the block, without tedious and time-consuming research. And by using the Cloud, the power to see customized shopping deals, lists, barcode scans and price drop alerts isn’t restricted by where you are or if you’re on your laptop, tablet or smartphone—it’s totally synced and instantly available for immediate purchase.”
With the BuyVia Android and iPad app, users can set product and vendor preferences, develop a shopping list, save barcode scans from their visits to stores, set a desired price on any given product, and it’s always available in their BuyVia app. The apps intelligently learn and use knowledge of the user’s preferences to deliver the most relevant/personalized deals available—without vendor or brand bias (many deal sites/stores have private partnerships that incentivize and limit the deals presented to customers). The shopping service can also alert users when selected products fall in price or when deals/promotions are available at preferred retailers. It will even automatically alert users to a desired product on sale in a local brick-and-mortar store when they are walking or driving by the store offering that price.
The Android and iPad app also delivers geo-local instant deals based on local availability by category, store and immediate location. This feature can also be customized so that users can click on deals or set the app to send an alert via push notification on deals for the products and retailers that were selected based on preferences, searches, prices, or items the user has scanned via UPC barcode.
Additionally, BuyVia is the only unbiased shopping service providing expert reviews. Android and iPad app downloads are available via the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Additional BuyVia Android and iPad information can be found on BuyVia’s Two Cents Blog.
