VERSION 2.0 HAS LANDED....

Armed with our biggest updates ever, version 2.0 of the Official HotUKDeals App gives you the tools to make sure you'll never pay retail again.
· The app now offers tablet support. By far the most requested feature, this version adds a customized view that works great on tablets.
· Every piece of the app has been redesigned to show you more great deals on a bigger screen.
· We've added a new grid view so you can quickly scan through bargains.

Don't worry, phone users, there are great new features for you as well.
· The display of deals has been redesigned to include more important details.
· We've added the code to the list of vouchers so you can grab discounts on the go.
· Ask, Misc, and Feedback discussions show how many members are in on the conversation.
· Added information on the level of positive feedback a seller has received in For Sale/For Trade.
· The temperatures have been colourised to show hot, cold, and new deals. Keep your eyes out for deals marked with the flame icon, they are too hot to miss.

We have completely rewritten the API to be Oauth based, and are using that as a basis for our new app. Once we get all the kinks worked out with the new version of the API we can work on getting it public for developers.
iPad version?
but i already have hukd saved as a widget on my smart phone.
how is this app any different to me accessing the web page on me smart phone?

Temp bars seem a little odd. A full bar for the draught excluder at 806 degrees and a full bar the global 4 tier shelf at 312 degrees.

Seems anything over 300 degrees is a full bar?

One issue though, if I may point it out, is that on my Xoom, it won't give you the option to display in landscape mode so have to view it in potrait mode.

Yes - the Mikado thread and The World at War is going to hit full bar status shortly as they are at 298° and 297°.
How do you actually 'log into' the app!
Just installed this on my iPhone and removed the old beta . . . promptly got hammered with about 100 deal alert notifications oO
Still hammering the cancel button to try and get rid of them

Click on Activity in the bottom panel and it should take you to User Activity where you can sign in!
just great, i sign up 10 mins ago, and i get the app for my phone same day, amazing or what looks like i chose the right day
i think i'll stick to the site. Not very tablet friendly and i don't really see a way to filter deals.

If you begin to put in your registered email, it will open up the password field and sign in as you would with your usual details.

Just enter your usual login email address and it'll prompt for your HUKD password.
Slightly misleading, but thanks
I just tried it and along the bottom, at first it said, DEALS LOCAL SHARE ACTIVITY DEAL ALERTS but now it just says. Button 0 button 1 button 2 button3 button 4 button 5
I will give it a try! Thanks

Were you one of the beta testers and didn't update the old version? If not, can you do us a screenshot please?
magicjay1986

Have you seen this?



Yes, I am currently using it for my own popular HUKD's Android application, but the current API is very limited compared to whats being offered in the official app. Not really ideal for us developers who would like to provide a deeper more enriching experience to our users

The cold bars make even less sense.

You should do it like this, because this way is awesome.

How do you log in and log out, switching users etc?
Been testing this. I'd still like an option to go into my profile to send PMs and leave feedback etc without having to load up the main site.
Expired deals don't show as expired on the app. Could do with a go to top button. After scrolling down the deals for a while it's a faff on scrolling to the top. App looks good tho'
