T-Mobile to launch social buying aggregator
T-Mobile USA is set to release a “daily deals” application on Android today, the New York Times reports. The app, called More for Me, will aggregate coupons and deals from various sources, including burgeoning social buying site LivingSocial.
Users can save deals to share with friends on Facebook, or send them SMS and e-mail messages. While the app is available only on Android, it can be downloaded through any carrier. T-Mobile plans to preload it onto their Android handsets as well as develop versions for BlackBerry and Windows phones.
T-Mobile is attempting to leverage their position between their customers businesses, taking a cue from Apple’s App and iTunes stores and sharing in revenue generated by the app.
T-Mobile’s Brad Duea promised that the app would still be available after their impending merger with AT&T is finalized.
