Add this app to your lists
Price Compare makes it easy to perform price comparisons and add new prices both at home and on the go.

Use this app and find hidden deals during this time of price inflation. Is it really worth it to buy in bulk? Is that "sale" really a sale compared to the regular store you go to? These are just two examples of questions Price Compare helps answer.

Once you've created products for the app to track, simply enter a price, amount and unit at the top of the screen (see screenshots) and compare unit prices instantly in the list view. Want to update a price to an existing product in the list? Just click on it and pick your store. That's it! You're done!

Enter prices as you skim through flyers, walk down an aisle at a grocery store or while you go through your old receipts. All that info comes in handy the next time you see a supposed "sale" at the store.

The items in the list view will colour code themselves according to the price entered at the top. Green means it's a deal! Red means you've found better prices previously.

    That said, the free version is very limited in it's use. The paid version is quite pricy. If you have the know how just create a spreadsheet with simple formulas and you'll be golden.

    * I added nutella 375g and nutella 750g both with offer prices and wanted to see which is more worth the dollar but it shows both as worst deals. *should have a field to record the item net weight. *should show the actual price of the item in the list instead of price/unit. *with all the above functions added, as a price analyst i will buy this app!

    Only app that truly compares prices for groceries and other products. It shows price comparison not only in different measurements (lb, kg, unit), also in different stores at different price points! Been looking for this kind of app specifically, unlike other ones which just shows a shopping list. I got the upgraded version too. 4 stars for now, lots room for improvements (design interface, user
