Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Dealdroid (Never miss another good deal on your favorite one-deal-at-a-time sites thanks to DealDroid)

Description
DealDroid is an open source Android applicastion which is a small application for Android devices that continuously watches for new deals on one-deal-at-a-time sites like BonkTown, Brociety, ChainLove, Steep and Cheap, Tramdock, Whiskey Militia, Woot and associated sites, ThingFling, and SlickDeals. DealDroid runs in the background and produces Android notifications when new items become available.

You can configure how aggressively the software will search for new items, as frequent background updates and keeping the phone awake may decrease battery life a bit. Although, I have not noticed any significant battery drain on my G1 using a 2 minute check interval.

Currently, DealDroid supports all of BackCountry.com’s one-deal-at-a-time sites and a few others that I find interesting. More sites are on the way in future versions. If there is a site you’d like added, please open an issue here on Google Code.

You can find some really incredible offers on these sites, with discounts of up to 75%. Unfortunately, you have to play their game, and stay on top of the current offers at all times if you want to find the best deals. I picked up most of the snowboarding gear I am riding this year from Whiskey Militia.

Check out some Screenshots of the application in action or view the recent Changes.
