“With over 17% of our total site traffic coming through handheld devices, our new iPhone app is significant for two reasons: First, it provides consumers with an enhanced savings experience when accessing RetailMeNot through our mobile channel, which continues to grow by 200% every month year-over-year; second, with millions of busy, on-the-go consumers increasingly using their mobile device to make an online or in-store purchase, now is the time to double down on our investment in developing better mobile technology,” said Cotter Cunningham, CEO and founder of WhaleShark Media, Inc., the operator of RetailMeNot.com. “This first iPhone app is only our initial offering, and we plan on significant improvements and new features to come to support consumers interested in saving money while using mobile devices to shop online or within retail stores.”
