Google has given its popular Google Shopper for Android app a bit of a boost, with new features promising to make and easier for users to research products and find good value deals on the move.
Version 2.0 of the app sees Google moving some interface features around, so the ‘Starred’ and ‘History’ buttons now sit at the top of the page.
Also new is a set of tabs at the bottom of the screen, affording nippy fast navigation to Google Shopper’s newest features.
Google’s blog explains how the new Google Shopper interface will let users find, save and redeem offers at nearby businesses via the following three tabs:
- Today’s Offer: part of the Google Offers beta program, this tab displays a single offer for discounted goods or services in your area. Today’s Offer is currently available in Portland, Oregon, the San Francisco Bay Area and New York, with other cities to follow.
- Nearby Offers: when you click this tab, you’ll see offers in the ‘Eat’ and ‘Play’ categories which nearby businesses have submitted through Google Places.
- My Offers: for those of us who occasionally misplace coupons or gloss over expiration dates, Google Shopper makes it easy to stay organized. When you come across an offer you like you can save it for later. Your saved and purchased offers appear on this tab and you can see which offers are close to expiring. To take advantage of an offer, just navigate to ‘My Offers,’ select the one you’d like, and click ‘Redeem’. In the future you’ll also be able to access and redeem your saved offers using Google Wallet.
Google Shopper 2.0 can be downloaded from Android Market now.
