Google introduced a new set of features for Google Shopper for Android that are designed to make it easier to research products and find good deals directly from your smartphone. In an effort to help you perform common tasks more quickly, Google has rearranged some features. Now, you’ll find the Starred and History buttons at the top of the page. There are also new tabs at the bottom of the screen that will help with navigation and provide access to new features.

Google Shopper has three tabs that let you find, save and redeem offers at nearby businesses:

  • Today’s Offer: part of the Google Offers beta program, this tab displays a single offer for discounted goods or services in your area. Today's Offer is currently available in Portland, Oregon, the San Francisco Bay Area and New York, with other cities to follow.
  • Nearby Offers: when you click this tab, you'll see offers in the 'Eat' and 'Play' categories which nearby businesses have submitted through Google Places.
  • My Offers: for those of us who occasionally misplace coupons or gloss over expiration dates, Google Shopper makes it easy to stay organized. When you come across an offer you like you can save it for later. Your saved and purchased offers appear on this tab and you can see which offers are close to expiring. To take advantage of an offer, just navigate to ‘My Offers,’ select the one you’d like, and click ‘Redeem’. In the future you’ll also be able to access and redeem your saved offers using Google Wallet.

You can download Google Shopper 2.0 directly from the Android Market on your smartphone. The app is available for devices running Android 2.1 and above.

I've been using Google Shopper for a bit now. One of its big faults is trying to have it find stuff near you. it always gives you stuff far far away even in a big city like NY.
