Popular deals service Groupon has had its Android app facelifted, resulting in a new look, as well as a couple new features and services. Take a look at the brand-new UI:

As you can see, the app now looks looks decidedly more Ice Cream Sandwich-y, has added a universal share button, and swipeable categories. You'll also notice new categories for Pets and Rewards (spend enough money at certain businesses and you get loyalty rewards). Overall, this was a much-needed refresh.

However, if you've ever used the Groupon app in the past, you'll know it was something a slow mover. Unfortunately, this hasn't really changed. Even on my One X, the performance improvement is marginal at best. The app still scrolls through the lists of deals with all the enthusiasm of rubber on sandpaper. Head over to the Play Store to grab it now.

    Glad to see some apps that hold weight are adopting ICS guidelines.
