Google Offers brings its daily deals to the iPhone

Google has launched a new stand-alone iPhone app for its Offers daily deals service, the company announced today in a blog post.

While Google Offers may not have caught on as big as Groupon or LivingSocial, the service continues to churn out tons of deals in about 40 cities in the U.S. If you use Offers, you’ll now be able to see deals near you on the map and keep better track of those deals you’ve signed up for on your iPhone. The app can also send you notifications if new deals are available or if deals you’ve purchased are close to expiring.

The company notes the following features inside the well-designed app:

Instant savings, just around the corner: Quickly discover offers near you in map view or search for deals by category to easily find the right deal for you.
See & use the deals you want, when you want them: All of your purchased and saved offers are tracked in “My Offers,” for easy access from your iPhone or online.
Savings made simple: Instantly redeem most offers with your iPhone, without having to print vouchers.
Never miss a great deal: Get notifications when new deals are available or when a deal that you’ve purchased or saved is about to expire.
