It’s the Groupon (www.groupon.com) you know and love, but now the deals hit even closer to home: The app has a page that automatically updates according to your location. Of course, it also lets you buy and redeem deals straight from your phone, keep track of your deals by expiration date, and set deal types like “food and drink”, “beauty” and more. While this is the most popular group-buying app, Living Social (www.livingsocial.com) has a similar app that is rated only a half-star lower in the iTunes App Store.
The Catch: Groupon groupies have been known to end up with a lot of random coupons, many of which they never get around to using.
Devices: Apple, Blackberry, and Windows phone
