Vouchercloud - a killer app for mobile

Vouchercloud is possibly the first bona fide killer app for smartphones; an app that everyone can see the value of.

It's an amazingly simple app - it finds your location, and then shows you which money-off vouchers are available for places near to you.  Select the voucher, then show it to the venue staff for the discount.  If you don't have GPS, you can look for vouchers alphabetically, or for by popularity.  If you don't have a smartphone you can use the SMS version.

It's free for users, as the venues pay to be on the app.  Perfect.

There are versions for the iPhone, Android, Windows 7, and Blackberry.  So far there have been nearly 1m app downloads in the UK.

It's a good idea, but I downloaded it a few months back for my iPhone and almost immediately stopped using it, because it crashed so often. If they can iron out the bugs it would be good, though.

I'd say you should try it again. It seems to work fine for me, and they may have beefed up their bandwidth.
Then again Facebook deals may make them obsolete!
