We've featured more than a few ways to save money on this site that have been found via Slickdeals. Today it gets even easier to spot those gems with a shiny new Slickdeals app. It includes both the highlights on the front page as well as access to the forums where eagle-eyed shoppers can share their finds.

The app looks nice, with adherence to standard Android UI (for the Holo faithful among you) and even includes a handy side panel navigation area. Optionally, you can get push notifications for major deals if you want to make sure you don't miss a thing, and you can use GPS to find local listings aggregated from sites like Groupon and LivingSocial.

The app is free on the Play Store right now.

    It was uninstalled as fast as it installed when I found out it mandates a login.

      Slickdeals does a ton of giveaways and have bonus entries for how long you have been a member. It is also how you setup deal alerts mentioned in the app description on the play store..

        The fact remains if the website doesn't require a login nor do any of the 3rd party applications why does this mobile app require a login? Detonation seems to assume if I create a account I become a contributing member.

      Good. One less lurker that doesn't contribute anything.

        Did I hit a soft spot?

    It is about damn time.

      Seriously. It doesn't make sense to have iOS apps and not Android. You could develop the Android app and publish it before Apple gets around to approving your app.

    Goodbye shitty slickdeal rss feed 'apps'!
