Idealyzer is Ideal for Finding Deals
If you classify yourself as a Woot.com junky who does the occasional hits of Woot! sellout or Buy.com’s deal of the day, then Idealyzer and Idealyzer Pro are just what you are looking for. There they are – every daily deal website you never knew existed, crammed into one app for your dollar-bill-covered eyes to feast on. We’re talking daily deals you never even dreamed of! The Federal government should send some of that stimulus money to that app developer. Talk about increased consumer spending! This smörgåsbord of consumer delight includes the Woot!s, DiamondShark, Newegg, Geeks, eBay, gearSlash, and Tooliday, just to name a few. The old days of typing in addresses and making book marks are gone thanks to Idealyzer’s centralization of all your deal-hunter needs.
There are some downsides to the application however. For instance, some of pictures, understandably, take a while to load. I sat for a while trying to figure out what item the description could possibly be describing when a picture of a nail gun popped up. Surprised? You bet I was!
I would also love to see this app expand the sellout.woot.com website, which has become a Mecca of online deals where anyone can submit a great deal. Sellout became a cross between the Wallstreet trading floor and an outdoor market in Vietnam almost overnight. One last feature that could improve this app would be full integration with Google Checkout this way you could skip the step of loading up the individual website. This might require a lot of work between Google Checkout and each deal site, but they’ll probably all still be there in a year anyways.
sellout.woot.com comes in normal and pro version. The pro runs a shallow $1.99 and offers the ability to turn a deal off if you do not want it to be displayed daily. You can also set notifications when new deals pop up. This feature will be a source of joy during the Woot! Off, I am sure.
Warning: shopaholics and anyone from the A&E show “Hoarders” need not download.
