Buckaroo Announces Mobile App for Android, Apple

San Jose, CA, May 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Buckaroo.com, the new provider of local shopping, news and events, announces the Buckaroo mobile App for Android and Apple devices, which enables users to stay connected to their favorite local updates while on-the-go. From hometown events to nearby hobby groups, the information-robust app covers 150,000 communities in North America.

"The mobile App provides a great experience for people who are out and about in their town, looking for shopping deals, an event, or simply reading the news in a coffee shop," commented Danny Spangler, a tester of the Buckaroo app from Denver, Colorado. "Compatibility with mobile devices is a good move for Buckaroo because of the hyper-local nature of the product."

Buckaroo is differentiated by its reach of subscribers and multitude of updated information relevant to small and large communities. Organizations and individuals are given a louder voice for things like events, deals, classifieds or a good cause.

"We want to see subscribers thriving in their surrounding community, whether they see a volunteer opportunity on Buckaroo, tickets to an event, or a new local business," said Fisher. "The Buckaroo app can hopefully help spur this kind of activity on."

The Buckaroo app is location-specific and offers the user different categories of information to view. Additionally, users can browse using a search bar, keywords or choose a location.

The Buckaroo app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or Google Play for Android.
