'Appy? Sony Ericsson's Happiness App available on Android


The uh Prozac of the Android app store… this app from Sony Ericsson, limited to owners of the Xperia phones, promises you Happiness. Or to be more precise, money off deals and vouchers at selected partners – from bars

Sony Ericsson tell us that their offers are unique to them so you won’t find the same things on Groupon or anything. They include money off at places from restaurants to shops, nail bars and gigs. There are also competitions where you can win things like a Sony laptop.

The Happiness app is free to download and entering competitions costs you nothing. We also like that the deals will work straight off your mobile phone screen so you can walk into All Bar One, show them your mobile phone screen and they will give you free tapas with your glass of wine, or whatever the offer is.

And yes we asked – they are training all staff to recognise these vouchers so it’s not like the waiter will give you evils for waving your mobile in his face and asking for free things.

The app is available from now and Sony Ericsson promise they’ll upload 2-3 new offers every week. It will run till Christmas and possib

So if you have an Xperia – this is definitely worth the download time. Sony Ericsson say it will bring a smile to your face, but whether it does or not it could definitely save you some money…
