Sporting a slick interface, Game PromoBox comes with a reputation of fetching the latest gaming content from all aforementioned distributors for common platforms, like Windows, Mac and Linux.

Details to follow.
The app lets you specify your country code so that it can keep you apprised of the hottest gaming deals from within your own location. The app updates its content automatically, so you don’t have to do that yourself every time you launch it. If you’re on a limited data plan, there is an option for you to set the automatic update feature to be used over Wi-Fi only.
The app’s homescreen interface is split into two halves. The left side lists all the latest game deals whereas the right one can be used to take a look at all the ongoing giveaways. While exploring the deals, you can check the latest price drops/discount rate (in percentage), current and sale price, relevant store and supported OS platforms regarding your favorite games.
Head to the giveaways section, and you can see for how long each giveaway is valid, who’s offering it, and how many entries it has received thus far. Long pressing on an item displays a context menu with a couple of options; you can either share that particular offer with your mates, or jump to the concerned store’s website.
While on the app’s homescreen, tapping Menu > Settings lets you launch the settings screen from where you can specify your country/area code, enable the Automatic Updater option, and/or the aforementioned Update Only With Wi-Fi option.
