Slick Deals RSS Feed gives Android users an easy interface for accessing the rich user community behind the popular Slickdeals.net. If you're not familiar with Slickdeals.net, it features found discounts for everything from fast food to computers, all of which are posted, rated, and vetted by thousands of bargain-hunting users. The best deals (after being scouted and confirmed by Slickdeals staff) then get featured on the site's front page. These featured deals then get pushed through to the Slick Deals RSS Feed app.

Where Slick Deals RSS Feed falls short is its lack of a search or browse function. This means that the only way to use the app is to scroll through the extensive list of discounts in the stream, and hope you find something worth buying. And because the stream only includes deals featured on the Slickdeals.net home page, its users miss out on a huge portion of the other discounts available on the main site.

Otherwise, we still think the Slick Deals app is worth checking out. Shop-a-holics on the go can certainly get excited about the huge variety of products it covers, as well as the constant updating by its user community.
