Inby Gives You Hot Sales, Promotions, and Other Events in Your Area

Istvan Fekete

At a time when the holiday shopping season is about to kick off, San Francisco-based developer CodeSmart has released a new app designed to empower consumers everywhere with location-based updates on all of the hot sales, promotions, and other events going on at businesses in the area. This is Inby, and it is available for both iOS and Android users.


Packed into a user friendly interface, Inby aims to ease the way you find bargains in the area you’re in. At the center of the app is a map, where you'll see all the stores which have some sort of promotion or hot offer. Fact is, the app could come in handy as Black Friday approaches.

Inby has various filters applied by default, but you can customize the app by turning the filters on or off so it will show only the deals you are interested in. The app can show you hot deals nearby or, if you have some sort of preference, you can choose the favorites option.


Besides showing the deal, Inby provides other location-based information such as the business' contact information, walking directions from your current location, and you can even subscribe to the feed of a particular business.

Inby currently covers about 2500 cities and towns in the US, represents more than 100,000 different businesses, and generates 5,000 new messages each day, the developers tell me. You can try it yourself by downloading the app from the App Store or Google Play.
