Woot is an awesome site that features a great deal each day. From shirts to wine, to the latest gadget, you can find great daily deals on Woot for an awfully low price. The only catch is that you have to be fast because the deals normally only go for that particular day and usually sell out fast. Now you can keep up with all the great deals from Woot from your iPhone with the 2 new Woot apps. Here's a look at both applications.
WootWatch (iTunes), the first Woot application to make it to the iPhone, isn't the best app for the job. Quite frankly, all it does is present you with the latest woot deal with its pricing information and a link to the woot website for more information. Unfortunately, this application does not provide the latest deals from Woot Shirt nor Woot Wine. We honestly don't see the point in downloading this application for Woot. You're better off bookmarking the website to get all that you would need for making a decision on whether or not to snag the latest deal from Woot.
Woot! (iTunes) on the other hand does a much better job at helping you keep up with the latest Woot deals. You can monitor not only the Woot site, but also Woot Shirt and Woot Wine. Where you would normally have to refresh the app in order to see any new updates with WootWatch, Woot! allows you to set auto-refresh intervals ranging from 1 minute to every hour. Woot! also allows you to to see the description of the latest deal right inside the reader including whether or not the latest item is in "Woot off!" mode, meaning it's almost sold out. There's even an option for your phone to vibrate and auto refresh when an item is in Woot-Off mode.
So Which One Should I Use?!
The answer to that question depends entirely upon your preference and budget. Currently, WootWatch is available in the iTunes App Store for free, while Woot! will cost you a $0.99. If you can afford to pay for Woot! we wholeheartedly advise you to do so. However, if you really don't need all the extra features and just want to know what the latest deal is, save your pretty pennies and grab WootWatch.
