Gather Round, it’s Update Time!
PHEW! We’re finally able to step away from the keyboard for a little bit to bring you all some very important updates!
These past few months we’ve been hard at work updating Sqoot’s features and user interface. Enough with idle chit-chat, let’s get on with the details.
Migration to Amazon Web Service – With our recent move to AWS you should all be seeing a huge performance and stability boost. This migration also supports our efforts to onboard even more deal providers.
More deals daily! – Our deal aggregator now cycles through providers and imports new deals 4x a day! That’s a lot of new deals!
More Providers – DealChicken and nCrowd to name a few!
Throttle increase – We now support up to 10,000 requests per hour/per user.
That’s not the deal or page I was looking for! – Deal links had been incorrectly forwarding users to a provider’s main page, instead of to the deal they wanted. Have no fear; we’ll take you to the correct location now!
Deal results paging inconsistency – We have fixed an issue where paged results were returning an incorrect number of deals in the API.
Duplicate Deals – We fixed the deal fingerprinting mechanism, assessed our database and it is now set up to remove and prevent duplicate deals.
Don’t worry; those enhancements are not all we’re doing. In the coming months we’ve got some pretty good stuff on our roadmap including:
An enhanced reporting tool
Coupon aggregation – that’s right, now you’ll be able to come to Sqoot for coupons as well as deals.
