Travelzoo Launches New iPhone Ap
Faster, sleeker, more visual access to unbeatable travel and leisure deals
Travelzoo Inc. (NASDAQ: TZOO), a global Internet media company, today launched its second-generation iPhone app, giving on-the-go travelers even easier access to its outstanding deals. The new simplified app, which features "Today's Best Deals" and Top 20® on the home screen, gives users the ability to quickly save money on high-quality deals in popular destinations.
"The Travelzoo ethos is simple - we save people time and money by sourcing the best deals in the market. With this approach in mind, we redesigned our iPhone app to bring the Top 20 and Today's Best Deals to center stage," said Dave Ambrose, senior director for mobile and social at Travelzoo. "Since visual appeal is key to an app's success, we also introduced significantly larger, inspiring photos. The app's new interface showcases deals within close proximity to the mobile user, enabling consumers to instantly access all nearby deals from spas, restaurants, hotels and shows with just one tap."
Alongside the acclaimed Android app, Travelzoo's first-generation iPhone app was downloaded by 1.5 million users and scored a 4.5/5 in the App Store. With today's launch of version 2.0, Travelzoo is aiming for a perfect 5/5.
All deals featured on the Travelzoo iPhone app have been researched and evaluated by Travelzoo Deal Experts and tested by the Travelzoo Test Booking Center®.
