In an attempt to capitalize on the recent surge in popularity for mobile coupons (text or otherwise), Verve on Wednesday also debuted an app that lets publishers issue ads on mobile.

“Through the application, advertisers can send out mobile coupons based on various options including time of day, a user’s location, or a particular neighborhood, among others,” the report said.
