Burlingame, California-based Blue Kangaroo is an iPhone and Android app best described as Google for offers. Finding the right offer at the right time just got a little easier.

Blue Kangaroo, a Google for offers by Lawrence Marx aggregates all available offers on your device. Partnering with AT&T, Blue Kangaroo  adds a tool bar carousel to the bottom of Android devices to help you find your deal. This app is from former Yahoo execs who are taking on the challenge of online deals by riding on the contextual awareness trend. The app is pre-loaded with updated offers from retailers such as Macy’s.
