Local deals are huge right now and everybody is talking about companies like Groupon and LivingSocial. In fact they are so big there are a lot of clones, wannabees that launch every day hoping to get a piece of the large “Coupons pie”.

This is awesome for us the end users, this means we have all these super deals on our hands and we can save a lot of money.

If you are looking for local deal apps that will help you save money you are lucky, because there are quite a few and they keep on coming.

To give you a hand on money saving apps I made a list of the ones I found in App Store (research which is harder than you might think)

The Amazon Mobile app allows iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users to quickly search, shop, compare prices, read reviews, and make purchases on Amazon.com using a simple, yet elegant, interface. Amazon customers have full access to their existing cart, wish lists, payment and shipping options, order history, 1-Click (R) settings, and Prime membership benefits. All purchases made on Amazon Mobile are routed through Amazons secure servers just as they are on the web. All prices are in US Dollars, and show products from the US Amazon store.

For the iPhone and the iPod Touch, the Amazon app also includes the experimental feature “Amazon Remembers” that allows you to use the camera on your iPhone to create a visual list of things you want to remember while out-and-about. The photos you take from the app are stored on both the Amazon Mobile app and Amazons website. If the item you want to remember is a product, Amazon Remembers will even try to find a product similar to your photo for sale on the web. If we do, well send you an e-mail alert and post the result along with the photo.

Amazon Mobile is great for:
Buying a new book while waiting for an appointment
Comparing prices from Amazon and thousands of other merchants to those in the retail store where you are shopping
Shopping for the full selection of products available from Amazon.com
Purchasing and gift wrapping your holiday gifts while on the go
Browsing product images and reading customer reviews while on the bus or train
Tracking the status of a recently-placed order when youre away from your computer
Using Amazon Remembers to take a picture to search for a pair of shoes similar to the ones the person sitting next to you is wearing (only available on iPhone app)
Watching movie trailers and listening to music samples (iPad only).
Scanning a barcode to instantly search for a product while on-the-go (currently only available with devices running iOS 4 with autofocus camera)

Not sure why the bad reviews (by GT5000)
I am not sure why this app has bad reviews. It works perfectly for me, it does what it says it will do and was really easy to set up. Not sure what the other people did for it to not work well in their devices. It really puzzles me!
     
Totally useless (by Dancingtwee)
This app doesn’t work. Keeps asking for my email to subscribe and nothing else! Waste of time…
