The competition is pretty tough in the market and it is good for the consumer. It is the only reason that companies have to lower down their rates or offer some discounts on their sale items. You must have seen many cards like AAA, AARP, USAA, Blue Cross Blue Shield, American Express or many other membership cards that get you some discounts. But most of the time we are not able to redeem the discount because either the last date expires or you are at any other store. So the actual purpose of these cards is not served. So we must admit that there is a need to channelize these points in an efficient way so that your savings are maximized. This is guaranteed with Larky.


Larky is an iOS app that has been developed by Larky and has recently made it to the App Store. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later version of the OS. First I thought that this app might work as another card for discount to be working on all of the stores but actually the app works as an agent or a customer service centre which tells you on how to use your cards and where so that you save the maximum.


The working of the app is very simple. All you need to do is add your membership details for various cards. Once you are done, your information is saved in the app. Then you can watch the various stores around you and the perks/offers available there. All the stores are shown on the map so that you may decide which is nearest to you. All the different perks are categorized in different areas such as Apparel, Electronics, Food & Beverage, etc. and the related number of perks is also shown. But the app is more effective in regular buys where when you enter a store, the app alerts you of the discounts available in the store and you can decide on your purchase of different items.


The app in use is like playing with a toy. You may twist it as you like but it remains the same and very simple to use. You can easily find out the discounts on your desired items and locate the stores on the map. The developers have already collaborated with over 1400 organizations in total for the different discounts available and therefore the app covers a major area around you.


The app is available for free in the App Store. It is like having a waiter with no expenses. I don’t know there’s much left still to let you know about the app. You can decide it yourself whether you want to use it or not; but I think it would be wise enough if you do so.

Pros: easy to use; integrated Map and categorized perk menu; free.

Cons: none.
