Quixby Deals for Windows Phone
There are so many sites out there now that offer that “daily deal” that it is hard to keep track of them all. Even if you do keep track of them, most of them aren’t going to interest you every single day. Very few people go the length that XDA Member RevisionZero has: he built a Windows Phone 7 app.
Called Quixby Deals, the app is designed with the penny pincher in mind. It compresses all of the major one deal a day sites into a single interface, including New Egg’s ShellShocker. According to RevisionZero it has:
- Access to the Quixby Daily Deal, the various Woot deal sites, and the Newegg Shell Shocker
– Pin the app or any deal tile to your live tiles

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
