App of the Week: Release Four

Last week I gave you a way to save money with RedLaser by scanning the barcodes of your favorite products. But what about the things that don't have barcodes like hotels and restaurants? There's an app for that too! It's called Groupon.

The app is free on iTunes and all you need to get started is type in an email address. Groupon has a featured deal every day, but they also have deals for vacation getaways and a rewards program that gives you access to exclusive deals at local businesses. There's also a "Goods" section that helps you save on electronics and other goodies like home furnishings and jewelry.

I'd also recommend to all of you iPhone users, updating to the new iOS6 software. It has over 200 updates that will make your life 200 times easier. Okay, maybe not, but there are some pretty neat updates like the new Apple Maps that has a fly-around feature where you can tour places like the Empire State Building just as a bird would. Also, everyone's second best assistant, Siri, is looking for a promotion this time around with her new sports scores and stats feature. She can also make your dinner reservations for you and remind you about them later. Now if only she could find a way to make our coffee in the morning...

Until next week,

Ali Strickland
