Stay on top of the latest deals and loyalty programs with FidMe for Windows 8

FidMe is a popular Windows Phone app that enables consumers to login and utilise their FidMe accounts while on the move. From cards to deals and coupons, the service is a great tool for those who enjoy taking advantage of the best deals and loyalty programs. The team behind the Windows Phone app has now released an identical app for Microsoft's latest desktop operating system, Windows 8.

Anyone with a Windows 8 device will be able to download and enjoy FidMe, which sports an impressive feature list. Much like the Windows Phone counterpart, we're looking at support for more than 4,000 loyalty programs in 100 markets, with the ability for users to reportedly discover stamp cards for tens of thousands of small businesses. It's fairly extensive and new accounts can be created within the app, so fear not if you've never used the service before.

Owners of the Windows app will also be able to consult FidMe point balance and view the account history. This is combined with synchronising connected cards, coupons and offers directly to the device (whether it be Windows 8 or Windows Phone). When using the app, the latest news and top deals are available and Facebook and Twitter intergration is available for those social types.

The best part about the service is there are no advertisements presented to users. The apps automatically synchronise with the cloud, thanks to the connected FidMe accounts. The Windows 8 app is available in English, French and Spanish. There are numerous services available that cover Microsoft's platforms, including the likes of Groupon, but it's always down to personal preference and we're sure many will enjoy FidMe.

To wrap up, the interface is aesthetically pleasing, with the app taking full advantage of GPS location services and offers an interactive map. You can download FidMe from the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 Stores (both are free).
