Gilt Group Launches New App for Android

The Gilt for Android App offers Android users the ability to browse and buy from Gilt sales directly from their phone.  In addition, the app will allow for:

  • A Closer Look at Sales: ¬†Through the use of pinch and zoom technology Android users have the ability to see products up close and flip between portrait and landscape views.
  • Never miss a sale again: See start of sale notifications in the Android status bar.
  • Get ahead of the curve: Browse upcoming sales and add favorite sales to the phone’s calendar.
  • Invite Friends: Show friends the app’s Quick Response (QR) code to allow any friend with an Android-powered phone to scan and get the Gilt app. Or invite friends to join Gilt via email, Facebook, Twitter and more.
  • Countdown to Sales Clock: Install the gilt sales clock widget on your home screen to know exactly when sales start.

“The Gilt for Android App was specifically designed for Android-powered devices,” said Jag Bath, Vice President, Product Management, Gilt Groupe.” Android users can now shop Gilt sales, preview upcoming sales, and invite friends from anywhere via multiple messaging channels, including sharing the app via QR code. In addition, unique to Android devices is the Gilt widget, which is always viewable on the phone so that Android users can see today’s sales even if they don’t have the Gilt app open.”

The Gilt App for Android is available for free at


  1. This is great! I miss sales because I don't remember to login. So being able to add a sale I want to browse to my phone's calendar is perfect! I like that Gilt is testing out QR Codes, but where will the QR code be? Is it just on a desktop screen or another user's mobile screen? I would like to see if they use it in glossy magazine advertisements or in display image ads. Something that could attract an even wider audience.

    Thanks for sharing!
