Apps for Black Friday – HotUKDeals: Deal alerts and voting system cut through the fog of all the Black Friday deals

London, Friday 20th October 2017: The free app from HotUKDeals, the UK’s biggest deal-sharing community, is perfect for Black Friday thanks to its deal alert feature and voting system, helping consumers navigate the huge number of deals available during the UK’s busiest online shopping day, to find the best deal for them. 

 

Free to download on iOS and Android, the HotUKDeals app is a great addition to the smartphones of savvy shoppers during Black Friday as users can vote hot or cold on deals, so other users know the hotter the deal, the stronger the offer (based on factors such as price, quality of the product and retailer). This allows consumer to be confident they are getting a good deal, which can be difficult during the sales period when there are so many adverts for discounts. The HotUKDeals community also comment on deals, so if other consumers have any questions about a product, price or retailer they’re on hand to help and give tips.

 

The HotUKDeals app also enables users to set keyword (deal) alerts, such as Xbox, fashion, TV, LEGO and more, for the products they’re looking for and receive notifications for new matching items, so all the deals come straight to their smartphone. With some deals expiring quickly, users can easily access the deals as found by the rest of the HotUKDeals community wherever they are.

 

The HotUKDeals app also includes activity updates on deals and merchants and supports user activities such as giving users notifications when others have commented on their deals. They can also follow updates from the deals, voucher codes, freebies and merchants they're interested in, as well as enabling the community to browse content that they’ve loaded before, even when they’re offline, so they can easily access the deals they’re following. Other features include enabling users to send and receive private messages and optionally get notified when a message has been received.
