NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Travelzoo Inc. (NASDAQ: TZOO), a global
Internet media company, today launched its second-generation iPhone app,
giving on-the-go travelers even easier access to its outstanding deals. The

home screen, gives users the ability to quickly save money on high-quality
deals in popular destinations.
"The Travelzoo ethos is simple – we save people time and money by sourcing the
best deals in the market. With this approach in mind, we redesigned our iPhone
app to bring the Top 20 and Today's Best Deals to center stage," said Dave

appeal is key to an app's success, we also introduced significantly larger,
inspiring photos. The app's new interface showcases deals within close
proximity to the mobile user, enabling consumers to instantly access all
nearby deals from spas, restaurants, hotels and shows with just one tap."
Alongside the acclaimed Android app, Travelzoo's first-generation iPhone app
