Your deal hunting just got much prettier with the 2.0 update to the LivingSocial app. With this new version, the app has been redesigned from the ground up with a real Android aesthetic. It's got an action bar, cards, tabs – the works.

The new LivingSocial app is much better in the looks department (#HOLOYOLO), but it's also faster. The old app was clunky and sluggish in a lot of places. The new UI scales properly to different size tablets and phones too.

In addition to the cleaner, faster UI, LivingSocial has added search functionality (somehow it didn't have that before). Now you can search for deals rather than just browsing through the categories. Some screens from the old interface are below so you can laugh derisively.

    Woo! Made it on AndroidPolice. My dream as a dev is complete.

    Thanks for the write up guys!

    Wooo! Thank you LS for updating that awful interface! But there is still no hamburglar menu ;)

      A humburger menu is not necessary. I'm actually annoyed because a lot of devs have added it to apps that worked better without one, just so they can advertise a UI update.

      Devs please, only use UI elements where they make sense. Don't add them for the sake of adding them.

      Try to judge whether a certain task is actually faster with a hamburger menu. If it is, use it.

        I completely agree, i said it as a poke to the #HOLOYOLO crowd. I'm all about holo, but agree that the hamburger menu shouldn't be used unless necessary.

      Maybe if we need it, we'll add it some day. ;)

    Hopefully that annoying bug got addressed (latest update) where it still displayed offer notifications even though you've turned it off in the settings.

    • Mike Evans

      Yep, that's fixed. Sorry about that!
