Nifty Deals is a free app that combines all the best daily local deals from over 2,000 sites and streamlines them into one easy-to-navigate location. Users will no longer have to search individual websites for the best deals because they can just check Nifty Deals instead. Best of all, the developers even have another app known as Nifty that pairs well with this one. It features a Craigslist-like marketplace where users can sell and share items with their Facebook friends.
It’s easy to navigate Nifty Deals. There’s no bothersome signup to use it. Just swipe right on offers to save them for later and swipe left on unwanted deals to move them to the trash. The app automatically finds deals based on a user’s location. It utilizes sites like LivingSocial, Amazon and Yelp to finds the best deals in the area.
The app boasts that it takes privacy very seriously. It never asks for an email address, which means there’s no spam sent to inboxes. Nifty Deals works to personalize deals based on votes. The more users rate items, the better the personalized deals they receive on the app. By consolidating all the best deals into one location and not spamming inboxes with tons of emails, Nifty Deals is taking a step in the right direction when it comes to flash sales.
While Nifty Deals could benefit from more local website sources, it still offers users a lot of deals based on their location. It’s the perfect way for users to take advantage of great deals with ease, and its beautifully designed interface meshes well with iOS7. It’s completely free to download and explore, which makes it well worth installing to the home screen.
