T-Mobile USA has released an Android app called More for Me, to aggregate daily deals based on location from different sources including the established social couponing company LivingSocial. The app feature discount deals across a variety of categories, including health and beauty services, outdoor activities, clothing offers, concert tickets and a lot more.
The app also provides a sharing option where you can share the deals with friends via Facebook, sms and email. The app can also be customized according to individual interests and will come pre-installed in the future handsets from T-Mobile starting from Android and eventually on other OS as well.
Brad Duea, a senior vice president at T-Mobile USA, said.
We can work with new partners who want to target a certain demographic, and deliver offers with SMS on their handsets. We can give deals on phone accessories, calling plans that are both national and based on a Zip code.
T-Mobile USA is in the process of being acquired byAT&T. According Duea, the app will remain part of the T-Mobile handsets even after the merger. He said
Apps like this will continue to have a life after the merger. I think new ventures like these will still have great value to our shareholders.
