SAN DIEGO, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Monster Offers (OTCBB: MONTD), a leading Daily Deal analytics provider and aggregator, today announces the release of 18 Smartphone apps in the nation's top 18 Daily Deal markets (including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle).
Last June, Inc. Magazine reported that for 2011 sites offering Daily Deals were expected to generate $3 billion in revenues, and that, according to a BIA/Kelsey estimate, this revenue number is expected to reach $4 billion by 2015. And it also appears that consumers who would like to participate in these daily promotions are still leaving a lot of money "on the table" in terms of offers that are not being purchased or accepted.
On April 11, as part of its collaboration with safety and lifestyle mobile app developer Iconosys, Inc. of Laguna Niguel, CA, Monster Offers released the first Monster Daily Deals app. In response to the positive feedback received from users who appreciated the value that this handy tool provides to collect, sift through and organize the mass of Daily Deals, Monster management realized that there was still a void in the market for an aggregated daily deals app that was more "hyperlocal" in nature. For example, many Monster Daily Deals™ Smartphone app users are more interested, if not exclusively interested, in knowing about those deals that are happening or available within a defined radius of their particular local area; these app users may have little or no interest in deals outside their hyperlocal GPS areas. With this in mind, enter the new suite of "Monster Dealies™" apps.
"Monster Dealies" apps features include:
- Hyperlocal list of Daily "Monster Dealies™" in up to 14 categories and 60 subcategories in your local market, all easily accessible with the press of a button.
- View Deals from hundreds of Deal providers (including Groupon, Living Social, EDeals, iCoupon, Goldstar, DealFind, and hundreds of others you'll want to see).
- Get an Editor's Pick "National Deal of the Deal," by pressing the Deal of the Day button.
- Using GPS, map deals from over 30,000 available deals right to your physical location anywhere in your metropolitan area, and even map deals nationwide or in other specific locations from the Map screen, all in real time!
- Adjust your preferential settings to a specific radius that is more in line with your particular daily travel and comfort zone.
- Share deals with friends and family through social networking memberships or sites (including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and others).
"Monster Dealies™" App List:
Development is also underway to increase these offerings to the top 50 markets, and negotiations are ongoing to increase the number of deal providers and aggregated daily deal offerings in each market.
The "Monster Dealies" apps are available from the Iconosys subsidiary Ad Shark's Android Appstore AppHysteria™, www.iconosys.com, and www.monsterdailydeals.com. In addition, they are soon to be available from other App stores including Amazon Appstore, GetJar, Barnes & Noble, and others.
MONSTER OFFERS QUOTE
"The new 'Monster Dealies' apps bring to your Smartphone or Smart device those killer discounted Daily Deals that are specifically tailored for your local market or GPS-designated location. In view of the now huge size of the Daily Deal market, we think an app like this makes abundant sense, as it scours the landscape to highlight what you care about and what you want to see, while cutting out the noise and the deals that are clearly outside your particular target area. Why should you ever pay full price for a meal, massage, movie or show ticket again in your local area? Our Monster Dealies apps bring the best discounted deals to your Smartphone or Smart Device, so you are plugged in and ready to save money 24-7."
- Paul Gain, Monster Offers CEO
