Greg Grunberg (AKA psychic cop Matt Parkman in Heroes) wants to save the world. Hang on, we need to edit that sentence. Greg Grunberg (AKA psychic cop Matt Parkman in Heroes) wants to save the world money. And he’s bringing his frugal Apple iPod app to the UK, even though we don’t have that many cheerleaders.
“I created an Apple iPhone application called Yowza! with these two guys who are rocks stars in the application world,” says the man who calls himself Grunny.
“You press Yowza! and it finds the deals and the coupons of stores and restaurants and other shops that are right around you, because it knows where you are – so you don’t waste time collecting a bunch of coupons you’re not going to use.”
Right now Yowza! is only available for use in the US, but that will change.
“It’s going to be coming to the UK probably in a year or so,” Grunberg tells AG.
Great news! And it’s nice to see a celebrity doing a completely selfless act. Don’t go ruining our image of you now Greg…
“The real reason I did it is selfish,” Grunberg reveals. “My wife and I love to save money wherever we can like everybody else.”
