In a time when Yelp, Urbanspoon, and Tripadvisor give us more information than we could ever use on where to go and when to go, sometimes we just want something easier. Sometimes you just want some cheap eats or something new to do this weekend that won’t break the bank, which is where Scoutmob comes in. Scoutmob is a location based app that shows you current deals for restaurants, events, and happenings in your area. Scoutmob got its start in Atlanta, Georgia and quickly added nine more cities, including New York, Boston, LA, and Seattle, to its supported list. The idea is simple: download the free app from the Google Play Store, give the app permission to use your location, and start finding deals. The ease and simplicity is a big point in Scoutmobs favor, something that has brought it recognition on best of apps lists. Scoutmob also brings additional ease of use through its included deal claim system. If you see a deal you like and want to use it, all you have to do is claim the deal through the app and show the deal to the on your phone at the register to get the discount. This makes it far easier than programs like GroupOn or Living Social, both of which require you to print out most deal vouchers and have purchased the deal in advance. With Scoutmob, there is no money exchanged before making your purchase. This takes away the pressure of having to find a deal, buy the deal, and use it all within the requisite amount of time. Additionally, the deals that are offered are usually for more boutique and obscure locations that can’t offer the bulk discounts larger stores can, meaning you can find those neighborhood gems you may not have found without the app. Download Scoutmob now to start finding deals and maybe a new favorite.
Scoutmob is available as a free download from the Google Play Store.
