LiveDeal Inc., to Release Apple iOS and Android Apps to Keep Pace With Its Growing Mobile User Base

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/14 -- LiveDeal Inc. (NASDAQ: LIVE) ("LiveDeal" or the "Company"), a publicly traded company that operates livedeal.com, an innovative platform using geo-location to enable restaurants to communicate and publish real-time and instant offers to nearby consumers, today announced that it will release Apple iOS and Andoid apps of its popular livedeal.com to keep pace with a growing livedeal.com mobile user base. The native mobile applications are near completion and are scheduled to be released by the end of the first quarter.

Jon Isaac, President and CEO of LiveDeal said, "With Apple iOS and Android representing the vast majority of all mobile users, our in-house app development and rollout is strategic as most of our user base are mobile users who spend more time on mobile than on web and are more likely to act on a deal on their mobile device, rather than on the web." He continued, "We are excited to complement our web offering with a compelling app experience which we believe will further drive brand allegiance and uptake of our livedeal.com solution."

What is livedeal.com?
livedeal.com is a unique, real-time "deal engine" connecting merchants with consumers. The Company believes that it has developed a first-of-its-kind web/mobile platform providing restaurants with full control and flexibility to instantly publish customized offers whenever they wish to attract customers. The website includes a number of user and restaurant-friendly features, including:

  • an intuitive interface enabling restaurants to create limited-time offers and publish them immediately, or on a preset schedule that is fully customizable;
  • state-of-the-art scheduling technology giving restaurants the freedom to choose the days, times and duration of the offers, enabling them to create offers that entice consumers to visit their establishment during their slower periods;
  • advanced publishing options allowing restaurants to manage traffic by limiting the number of available vouchers to consumers;
  • superior geo-location technology allowing multi-location restaurants to segment offers by location, attracting customers to slower locations while eliminating potential over-crowding at busier sites; and
  • a user-friendly mobile and desktop web interface allowing consumers to easily browse, download, and instantly redeem "live" offers found on livedeal.com based on their location.

Restaurants can sign up to use the LiveDeal platform at the Company's website (www.livedeal.com).
