Any thoughts on a desktop stand alone version where you can search for offers?

I love Ibotta, but as I am browsing the ads for my local stores on my desktop computer, I can't check Ibotta for offers, unless I am "shopping" online and using the extension.  Is there a plan to add a solo desk top application that can be used to search for offers?  I would love that.

I was crying about not being able to add offers on my desk top also. The app really drains  my battery. I finally remembered that I have a program that runs apps on my computer. I use Bluestacks, but there are quite a few, so now I can run the app and add offers on my computer. I am now a Happy Camper.

I tried it last year and it was too buggy to mess with.  Maybe I will revisit

   Yes, I have experienced that  bluestacks is a bit of a pain to use and is slow unless you alter your boot settings. There are other options but once  stacks was installed  I never took the time to  go back and try another. If you find something  more user friendly, please shoot me a  message. I would appreciate it.

i am on board with this, i also wish there was a way to see all the products that have an ibotta offer on first thing when a page with products is loaded, rather than going page after page to find individual offers

@Nay1991  Have a look at ibotta.com/rebates. It lists offers but it isn't interactive and it isn't 100% accurate. I think it's an old unmaintained page but it still shows active offers and can give a quick idea of what to look for in the app.

@rshellhammer04  I've tried Bluestacks in the past for other apps. I had an old computer so it ran too slow and had problems. I might give emulators another look. But it would be better if improvements were made to the Ibotta website so it could be used along with the mobile apps.

@Saipan  Have you run the Ibotta app with NoxPlayer? Just wondering if it's worth trying.
