LiveDeal Inc. (NASDAQ: LIVE) ("LiveDeal" or the "Company"), a publicly traded company that operates livedeal.com, a geo-location based mobile marketing platform that enables restaurants to publish “real-time” and “instant offers” to nearby consumers, today announced that Apple has approved the Company’s mobile restaurant deal engine App for distribution at Apple’s App Store.

To view the LiveDeal iOS App click here: Apple App Store.
Now available to the tens of millions of Apple mobile device users, the geo-location based LiveDeal iOS App is a valuable and user-friendly tool for finding nearby restaurant deals. With the iOS App, consumers will also be able to search for deals by restaurant name or type of food as well as search for deals in other cities.
iOS LiveDeal App users will enjoy access to a unique, real-time "deal engine" as local restaurants post limited-time offers. Unlike some other deal platforms, LiveDeal allows for instant access to the deals. Consumers simply choose the deal they want and present it at that restaurant to receive their discount.
According to a February 3, 2014, comScore press release, as of December 2013 Apple’s share of the age 13+ smartphone market was 41.8 percent. Participating restaurants now have a much broader potential market for the deals they post on livedeal.com as nearly half of smartphone users will be using an iPhone.
Jon Isaac, President and CEO of LiveDeal, commented: “We are extremely pleased with the early response we’ve had in beta testing the iOS App. Users have reported it to be very fast and intuitive. Basically we’ve simplified the restaurant deal process. We believe the iOS App will greatly boost user adoption as LiveDeal expands across the country.”
What is livedeal.com?
Available online and through Android and iOS apps, livedeal.com is a unique, real-time "deal engine" that connects 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, thereby attracting customers to slower locations while eliminating potential overcrowding at busier sites;
- innovative proprietary restaurant indexing methodology; 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).
