Review: The Latest Free Stuff app

Latest Free Stuff appNot sure if you’ve seen this yet, but freebie site Latest Free Stuff just released a new app for iPhone and Android phones. I decided to give it a whirl…

It’s simple and easy to download, it’s free to use, and you don’t need to take up membership of the site to use the app. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only designated freebies app of its type, which in itself makes it worth a look.

From the looks of things, there will be two or three new freebies added each day, and there are plenty of longer term offers on there already. You can browse by the latest offers, or browse by category, and the navigation is very intuitive and uncomplicated. There are plenty of categories, mostly arranged by type (business, health & beauty etc), and a few shortcut ones to give you the Top 20 Freebies or Today’s Freebies.

Once you find an offer you like the look of, simply click on the big ‘Get Freebie’ button to go to the promoter’s site, and fill in your details so that they can send you your freebie. I’ve tried this to get some free samples of tea, and it all seemed to go smoothly enough – quick and painless. Will let you know if it all arrives in due course!

I did find a broken link to one of the offers, although to be fair this happens on websites like this too. Interestingly, you can sign in with Facebook to each app page and comment on the offer in front of you – a handy way to let the site know there’s a problem or to let friends know there’s a great offer up for grabs. There’s more info about the app on their website.

In summary: this app is easy to use, has some nice freebies on it (look out for this week’s free hot chocolate offer from Debenhams) and if they carry on as they’ve started it will be worth a look on a regular basis. I can see this being nice for a little browse on the daily commute.

Full disclosure: I have accepted a gift voucher as a ‘thank you’ from the promoter. They have asked for an unbiased review, which is A) nice, and B) what they’re getting.
