Canadian iPhone Apps of the Week

by Rob Lewis

Techvibes seems to receive press releases from developers, companies and associations announcing that they have launched a new iPhone App on a daily basis. While some apps are completely commercial in nature, there are some great ones that just don't get the attention they deserve.

Every Friday Techvibes highlights new iPhone Apps that we've heard about. This week we've got two shopping apps - one to help you find a new home and one to help you stock your refridgerator.

Zoocasa iPhone App - Use Zoocasa’s iPhone application and take their powerful real estate search technology with you wherever you go. It’s an index of homes for sale across Canada, right in the palm of your hands.  When you launch Zoocasa on your iPhone, Zoocasa uses the iPhone’s GPS to pinpoint your location and show you all the nearby homes that are listed for sale and indexed by Zoocasa.

GroceryDeals iPhone App - GroceryDeals is a free location-based grocery deal finder for the iPhone. GroceryDeals lets you find the closest, grocery store with the single touch of a finger. It was designed to allow Canadians to find grocery store deals to save them time and money. The application features grocery store locations on the map for route planning and the current top 5 deals from each store's weekly flyer.

If you have an iPhone App built in Canada or built for Canadians, fire us a note and we'll be sure to profile it in an upcoming Canadian iPhone Apps of the Week post.
