If you like daily deals websites like Woot or 1 SaleADay, you know that it can sometimes be difficult to keep an overview of all the deals that they offer. Depending on the site in question, you may need to browse multiple pages to get them all displayed to you.

Deal Flux is a free Android app that acts as an aggregator for several daily deals websites. Instead of having to browse the sites manually, you get all the deals they have on offer in the application's interface. This can also be useful if you are on the road, traveling, on holiday, or somewhere where you do not have access to a desktop computer or mobile computer.

Once you have installed Deal Flux on your device you can start it right up to check out the deals of the day. All offers are displayed with their name, price and a little thumbnail only on the front page so that you can browse them quickly.

A tap on a deal opens its profile page in the app. Here you get a bigger preview of the item, the buy now button and an option to display additional details like the item's description. If you hit buy, you are taken to the website of the service to make the purchase.

The related tab highlights similar offers which does not work that well as it is limited to deals from the same website.

A tap on the settings icon in the top left corner of the screen opens a side menu that you need to use to switch to another supported site. The layout and functionality is identical on the other hand so that you will feel right at home here from the start.

Here you can also open the settings which provide you with options to disable specific sites, or deal categories. Just flip the switch from on to off, or uncheck one of the daily deals sites here to not receive offers from that site anymore when you are using the application.

A couple of things could be better though. An option to browse all offers without having to switch first would be very welcome, as it feels kinda unintuitive when you switch to another deal source in the app currently as you need to open the settings menu first to do so. At the very least, add a swiping motion to switch between sources right away.

The developers should also consider adding more deal sources to the application. That's actually something that they have mentioned in one of the comment replies on the apps' page on Google Play. At least SlickDeals will be added to the next version of the application, with others promised as well.

Last but not least, it is only useful to people from the United States as only US-based deal sites are covered by the application. While you may be able to purchase some items from outside the US, you may not be able to do so for all.


If you visit Daily Deals sites like Woot on a regular basis, you may want to consider installing the Deal Flux extension for Android to your device so that you can do so more efficiently or while on the go.

    Uhh, this has already been possible – I am not sure how but remember my brother telling me about it. I’m not a whatsapp user so not sure of the specifics, but something about sending the image as a file and somehow bypassing the default compression settings that are applied to inbound photos.

    He has also used this to share movies to whatsapp groups, and files 1Gb+.

    Like I said, I never used whatsapp, but I know 100% this isn’t a “brand new feature”, my brother literally showed me him doing it, like… 5 months ago?

    Martin, what happened to those: 12 Comments ( Is there a specific justifiable reason why they were deleted?

    Hmm, it looks like the gHacks website database is faulty, and not populating threads with their relevant cosponsoring posts.

    The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk that it’s about to be deleted from my ‘daily reads’.

    It’s really like “Press Release as re-written by some d*ck for clicks…poorly.” And the subjects are laughable. Can’t wait for “How to search for files on Windows”.

      > The page on ghacks this is on represents the best of why it has become so worthless, fill of click-bait junk…

      Sadly, I have to agree.

      Only Martin and Ashwin are worth subscribing to.
      Especially Emre Çitak and Shaun are the worst ones.

      If intended “Clickbait”, it would mark the end of Ghacks Technology News.
      Ghacks doesn’t need crappy clickbaits. Clearly separate articles from newer authors (perhaps AIs and external sales person or external advertising man) as just “Advertisements”!

      We, the subscribers of Ghacks, urge Martin to make a decision.

    because nevermore wants to “monetize” on every aspect of human life…

    “Threads” is like the Walmart of Social Media.

    How hard can it be to clone a twitter version of that as well? They’re slow.

  7. Paul(us) said on August 21, 2023 at 5:16 pm

    Yes, why not mention how large the HD files can be?
    Why, not mention what version of WhatsApp is needed?
    These omissions make the article feel so bare. If not complete.

      Sorry posted on the wrong page.

    such a long article for such a simple matter. Worthless article ! waste of time

    I already do this by attaching them via the ‘Document’ option.

    I don’t know what’s going on here at Ghacks but it’s obvious that something is broken, comments are being mixed whatever the article, I am unable to find some of my later posts neither. :S

    Quoting the article,
    “As users gain popularity, the value of their tokens may increase, allowing investors to reap rewards.”

    Besides, beyond the thrill and privacy risks or not, the point is to know how you gain popularity, be it on social sites as everywhere in life. Is it by being authentic, by remaining faithful to ourselves or is it to have this particular skill which is to understand what a majority likes, just like politicians, those who’d deny to the maximum extent compatible with their ideological partnership, in order to grab as many of the voters they can?

    I see the very concept of this as unhealthy, propagating what is already an increasing flaw : the quest for fame. I won’t be the only one to count himself out, definitely.

      @John G. is right : my comment was posted on [] and it appears there but as well here at []

      This has been lasting for several days. Fix it or at least provide some explanations if you don’t mind.

    > Google Chrome is following in Safari’s footsteps by introducing a new feature that allows users to move the Chrome address bar to the bottom of the screen, enhancing user accessibility and interaction.

    Firefox did this long before Safari.

    Basically they’ll do anything except fair royalties.
