SnipSnap launches IOU app to save you from being a mooch

You know that time when you wanted to make a cute coupon for a “date of his/her choice” for your sweetie to redeem? Or when you wanted to gift a “day without chores” to your teenaged kid? Well, there’s now an (iOS) app for that.

Enter GoodFor, an app from the SnipSnap team, which launches today. It takes its name from the common IOU phrase “good for…”

SnipSnap’s flagship app enables people to “snap” a picture of printed coupons and redeem them online. After noticing a lot of people creating their own IOUs with the app, SnipSnap decided to create a dedicated app for this.

“We didn’t have a place for this in our app per se,” said Ted Mann, SnipSnap’s chief executive.

However, the team found the alternative use so compelling that it decided to build this “fun project” and put it together in just a month.
