Mobio is a deals network that allows users to enter contests, opt into deals and events, and access exclusive content. The service lets you scan and share barcodes for special offers. It also keeps track of your loyalty cards and in-application activity. Current brand partners include Forever 21, Chase, HP, Dairy Queen and GE.
Best Feature:One great feature of the application is the fact that in-app purchase receipts are made readily available via email alerts. This feature would be particularly useful for those required to track their expenses.
Needs Work: The two year old company doesn’t hold the same market share or notoriety as a Groupon or the current triple threat of Google Wallet, Google Offers and Google Blue Dot [http://googlemobile.blogspot.com/2010/03/in-stock-nearby-look-for-blue-dots.html], Without a large enough audience, it’s unlikely to draw a critical mass of partner businesses and unlikely to boast the best deals. In addition, in some cases new users are asked to share offers with their friends in order to opt into contests. Given the current issues with Facebook and Twitter spam, a user may be reluctant to share these offers until they’ve completely bought into the trustworthiness of the company itself.
