Ratings and Reviews
Best app ever down downgraded to crap
What used to me a simple and quick to browse app is now a bloated and hard to navigate debacle. The latest upgrade includes (I sarcastically add) huge fonts that take up so much space you only see 75% of what was shown in the original app. Missing graphics, photos of products you might be interested in are now replaced with grey boxes with (contrary to the listing) in a font so small you can’t read it showing the discount “$100 off” (of what? I want a photo like in the past). Seriously, more than 50% of the listings now show no photo. Plus, the date the deal was posted is now missing so you now guess what the last deal you last looked at was (no more scrolling to “24-hours ago” and knowing you’ve seen everything listed below that deal). And I’m done. Bummer. From a 5 to a 1-Star by allowing some coder (obviously they didn’t hire a human interface developer) decide what looks good. I think I’ll let my 10-year old design my next company flyer, apparently that’s now the going style.

Hello @ IDoMagic. Whew, you gave us a lot to chew on! Two of the big changes in this version were 1) adding many, many more deals many of which don't always have images and 2) based on significant user research, we updated the design based on what our users find most valuable. We would very much like to understand more about how we can solve the "guess the last deal you last looked at" issue for you as you're not the first person to bring this up! Please contact us at https://www.dealnews.com/contact/ so we can figure out how to address your concerns directly. Thanks for the feedback and we sincerely hope you don't go.
Update Making app unusable
I’ve been using this app for what seems like over 10 years now every day, at several points in the day to see what new deals are out there. In a sea of similar apps, this was the one that stood out enough for me to stick with it and delete the rest. That is, until now.
I cannot imagine consumers demanding that a key feature of displaying when the deal was posted to be removed. Why would anyone ask for that? It’s important to know if something was posted an hour ago versus a week ago. Why would you take this out?
Also, it doesn’t even look like all the categories are even there anymore. Toys and games looks like it’s gone (unless the interface has been made so difficult it’s buried somewhere else). I can see some of those things show up under “new” but there’s no longer a separate category for that. I’m not scrolling through every single new posting in the hopes of finding those things.
I’m sad to say that I just can’t use this app anymore unless some of these features are reimplemented. I understand the needs of a business to move forward but these are major steps back just in the effort to put out something “new”.
Whatever happened to “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it?” In the meantime, I’ll take a swim in the sea of other apps which will likely have these features.

We appreciate your feedback. We understand that the posting time is important to our readers and are working to return it in the app. Our engineers are looking into some options. We appreciate your patience while we get this fixed, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We have also fixed the bug that affected the Gaming & Toys category. You should now be able to see these deals as before.
Poor App “Upgrade”
Since the update, I could not find the deals that were supposedly added to “My Deals.” I’ve been following the prices of 65” TVs for several months, and I have a lot of these deals saved under “My Deals.” Since the update, I continue to get notifications of new TV deals, but when I go to the “My Deals” area, the deals would not be there. After several days of frustration, I finally scrolled all the way to the bottom of the “My Deals” screen. That’s where the app has been placing the new TV deals. At the bottom! Not in reverse chronological order like before. It would make sense to place new deals at the top of the list, but this app upgrade does not do that.
Also, like others have commented, I’m not a fan of removing the hotness ratings. And, the overall look of the deal listings is not as clean.

Thanks for your feedback. In the "My Deals" section, click the "Manage" button in the upper right, then choose "Sort by most recent deals" to resort your deals with the newest at the top of the list. Hope this helps!
