TOP NEWS's New iPhone App Gains In App Store

Apparently, visitors to Austin-based are eager to gain easy access to the company's coupon codes via their mobile phones. According to RetailMeNot, the app--which it just launched this week--jumped to number one on the list of free, lifestyle apps within the iTunes App Store yesterday. The app allows users to search for and paste coupon codes into sites during checkout when using iOS. The company also looks to have benefited from a promotion it is running to award up to $1000 to users who help promote the mobile app on Facebook each day through Sunday. RetailMeNot is the flagship site of Austin's venture backed WhaleShark Media, which also operates a number of other coupon code and related websites.
