After seven months of development, and 1 month of beta testing, we’re thrilled to announce that you can now download SnipSnap on the Google Play store for your Android device. Go get it!
Seven months? Close to a year if you include our early planning and design. What can I say: Android is hard!
But now that we have finally finished on V1 of SnipSnap for Android, I can safely say that our team has a newfound appreciation and love of the platform. There are several things about the new Android app that we’ve come to like better than our iOS app — the redeem screen, for example, and the accuracy of location notifications.
Many thanks to all our beta testers, without whom we would have never gotten this far. (If you did download a beta build, please be sure to uninstall, then download from the Google Play store fresh. Don’t worry, after you log in, all your coupons will be restored.)
The app has all the same great features as it’s slightly older iOS sibling:
- Save any coupon to your smartphone simply by snapping a photo of it.
- Follow friends and family from your address book, Facebook friend list, or Twitter account, and follow to see their public coupons and activity
- Search SnipSnap’s Database of hundreds of thousands of community-submitted coupons.
- Expiration and Location Alerts so you’ll never forget to redeem a coupon, especially while you’re out shopping.
And there’s a bunch more in the works — including several Android-specific features. We don’t want to announce them all just yet, but suffice it to say that widgets, barcode beaming, and Google+ are all on the horizon.
In the meantime, hope you love SnipSnap for Android as much as we do. Take a look at some screenshots below to get a sense of what’s in store after you download!
