MealSteals is a real time deal app that displays all active deals in a given area to hungry/thirsty people. We specialize in flash deals that are running out quickly! However, we also include happy hours, weekly specials and any other regularly scheduled deals. App users load up the app and are then presented with a map view, list view, featured deal tab and user settings tab. They can filter or search for any active deal that is going on this very moment. Only active deals are displayed, so the user knows that what they see is perfectly available right now. The idea is to help deal hunters make quick, fast and effective decisions on where to eat or drink. The app is lightweight, fast and very simple to use.
Restaurant and bar owners control all of the deals posted and have the ability to post deals immediately to the app within a moments notice. Because of this, MealSteals prides itself in being very dynamic, changing constantly in real time.
The landing page and app are currently in re-development and will be completely different than what is seen currently on mealsteals.com.
Though we are targeting anyone looking for a great deal, people who will find our app the most useful are younger people living in the city. The main uses (in no specific order) for our app include...
1) Helping people make a decision quickly and effectively (For instance, lunch breakers who have to make a decision in a pinch)
2) Fostering spur of the moment change of plans. (For instance if the restaurant they go to has a 50 minute wait, they can load up the app and find something similar going on right now within walking distance)
3) Bar hopping
4) Just simply looking to see whats going on in their area. The city we are launching this in has one of the highest bars & restaurants per square foot ratio in the country. People walk and bike constantly. MealSteals shows them deals within walking distance that they never even knew existed.
