Shop Smarter Main Features:
Compare by quantity per pack plus weight, volume, length and area, in any mixture of Metric, US and Imperial (UK) units.
Include all multi-buy offers such as buy 2 get 3, buy 3 for $5.99, buy 2 get 10% discount etc.
Calculate the cost per unit for a single item or offer, however complex. Great for instant on shelf comparisons in-store.
Add and compare up to 15* items simultaneously with quick edit and delete facility. Clone any item for super fast entering of similar items.
Instant conversion of items unit cost. For example, item is in US pints, show as metric litres with just a single key tap.
Automatically recognises and warns of false deals. It doesn't happen very often but stores do sometimes make mistakes and offer multi-buy deals that are more expensive than the single item! For example $1.99 each, buy 3 for $6.99.
See how much extra each worse value for money item is, as cost per unit, cost per pack and as a percentage. Is that premium brand worth the extra?
Either Ignore product names for instant answers in-store or enter them and, selectively, create a regular products list for favorite items.
Optionally file comparisons for later use. Ideal for preparing best value shopping lists and checking a current price against previous times that you purchased it, even broken down by store if needed.
Optionally enter store names and create a regular stores list too.
Powerful filed comparison search and selection facilities. Select by any mixture of date range*, product name range and store name range.
View all the details of filed comparisons and edit them too. Re-file edited comparisons or add them as a new one. Perfect for when you only need to add a new item to compare or delete an item that is no longer required or on offer.
*The free version has no ads but is limited to comparing 3 items simultaneously and you may only view or edit filed comparisons that are up to 7 days old. It has no limit to the Regular Items and Store Names lists.
Upgrade at any time and automatically import** all your existing Regular Items, Store Names and comparison data (even comparisons more than 7 days old).
**Importing free version data to the paid version is only possible when the app is stored in the Android DefaultExternal drive (sd card or other device dependent location). This is the normal location.
