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.

    I really enjoy this app. I would recommend adding 2 features: 1) a check box on the product entry screen to indicate if a price is a "sale price"; and 2) that the product name be auto fill based on products already entered to avoid duplicate entries. Thanks!

    It would be nice to scan a product via barcode and find the best price in a local database instead of searching through the whole database by hand.

    App does what it says. Not very user friendly. 5 stars with a barcode scanner and better UI
