Singapore’s first and largest daily deals site, DEAL.com.sg
(DEAL) has today launched its mobile application on the Android platform. This
advancement of DEAL’s mobile applications rides upon the success of its iPhone application
launch in August 2011. This development will enable DEAL to delight Android users in
Singapore with unique daily deals.

Patrick Linden, the Chief Executive Officer of DEAL, champions the company’s resolved
progress. “We aim to transform online shopping into a fun, hassle-free experience. Tapping
on technological advancements in mobile applications has worked favourably for
DEAL.com.sg. We intend to continue making waves in Singapore with this launch, and hope
that our Android customers will enjoy their DEAL experience from their mobile phones”
Indeed the company has had proven success with technology and the numbers have backed
this up.

DEAL’s iPhone application rocketed to the top spot on iTunes Lifestyle upon its
launch, driven by its unique feature – a paperless redemption process. This has made it
more convenient for customers to redeem DEAL vouchers, simply showing the merchants
their mobile phone, as well as contribute towards saving Gaia. The application also topped
the Free App ranking in Singapore on iTunes and its lifestyle category. With over 22,000
downloads and more than 67,500 visits on its application within the first five days, going
mobile was definitely a step in the right direction for DEAL. To date, DEAL’s iPhone
application has received over 100,000 downloads.

“I’m an avid bargain hunter, and have been using DEAL.com.sg for over a year, visiting their
website on a regular basis. I’m really looking forward to using the mobile application, as this
will allow me to check out and buy the latest deals, while on the move, and also redeem my
deal purchases in an easy, environmentally-friendly manner,” said Android user, Marvin Ng,
who is also a customer of DEAL.

Through such value-added services, DEAL aims to provide a positive customer experience
and boost its position as the number one daily deals site in Singapore. When enjoying your
tasty food, new activities or exciting holidays becomes as simple as flashing your phone to
the merchants, this is indeed a DEAL experience.
