Groupon has finally turned on location and has become a lot more useful in the process. Groupon Now lets you view the nearest deals to your location on a Google Map. It is available both from your desktop and from your mobile device.
Actually Groupon Now is a bit of a misnomer. It should more accurately be called Groupon Later because, for now, it is only available in Chicago. If you are lucky enough to live in the Windy City then you can enter your address and search for deals by category.
The results of your search are displayed on a Google Map and each deal comes with a timer informing you just how long you have left to redeem your deal. The application works really well and, once a few more cities are added, should help to cement Groupon's position as the leading deal-of-the-day provider.
