A discount is always appreciated. Whether it’s a1+1 offer or a free gift on a minimum purchase of $10 or anything else, if you’re getting it for free, then it’s always a good buy. But the problem is that you never know when a particular store is going to hold the sale. Sometimes, they declare it in advance on their website while sometimes they choose to remain silent and throw it as a surprise sale to every customer who arrives in their store on a particular day. In any case, you most probably miss the opportunity. It’s probably the worst news you’d ever hear when you’ve just bought some new clothes from a store and on the very next day, you find there’s a sale going on. So to make sure you never miss such golden opportunities in the future, you need to keep an eye on them. Or just let Inby keep an eye on them for you!


I’m talking about the latest iOS app called Inby that has been developed by Codesmart. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 8.0 or any later version of the OS.

Inby is an app that gives you all the information about any sale going around you. Just open the app and there you’ll find all the different offers that are currently open for you to grab in your local area. The in-app map plots all the different stores along with their location and therefore you always get to grab the best offer “closest” to you. So now you don’t have to go miles to get a discount; it’s available next door.


There are four kinds of offers that are available: discounts and sales, promotions and deals, news and events and vacancies. There are various sources from where these offers are generated such as cafes, bars, pubs, dry cleaners, travel agencies, supermarkets, salons and the list just goes on. So if there’s any such offer making rounds in your city, you’ll get to know about it. Also, if you’re looking for some particular offers like vacancies only, then you can filter the search and only vacancies will be shown on the map.


If you’re a regular customer of a particular café or a supermarket, then you can subscribe to their messages and you’ll be notified whenever a new offer is open. This way you don’t need to check for new offers every day and the store owners are also happy as their messages get spread easily.

Overall, I’d say that Inby is a smartly designed app that gets you the best offers of town on the go. Once you have this app, you’re paying less for more and you can proudly call yourself a “Smart Shopper”!

The app is available for free in the App Store.

Pros: smartly designed; find closest discounts on in-app map; filter results; subscribe to favourite stores; free.

Cons: none.
