Recently I was working on an application “Would You Me” – This application was built as a survey app and turned out to be a pretty big hit. Our servers went down only after a week of release – which we didn’t anticipate. We went back to the drawing board.
This time we came out with something much more stronger and we thought why not add some deals to it. Thats when I started looking at Groupon Deals API. Its pretty good and works pretty well – also attracted a few more people to our recently uploaded 2.0 version.
Just yesterday I came across an article on TechCrunch about HyperPublic. It sounded awesome – I went inside made an app out of it and its available with code on GITHUB. What this API does is it provides you with rich local data and also local deals. I found it very useful and very easy to implement. You can filter places or offers on a bunch of different levels. I just threw out something at it and it turned out pretty strong and very efficient. Check it out.
