Retail store apps for comparing prices have become the newest thing in cell phone apps and have made comparing prices at retail stores easier than ever. Ten years ago if you wanted to comparison shop you had to go from store to store, or look up what you wanted at home on your computer. If you were out and saw something and wondered if it was cheaper online, you had to forego getting it then and check when you got home. Five years ago you could pull out your cell phone and use the web browser to check Google or Amazon, but even that was slow. Today, it’s a snap!
Consumer Reports has a retail store app for comparing prices. It isn’t free (cost is $4.99) but that price provides users with one year of ad-free access to Consumer Reports’ ratings, brand reliability, buying advice, user reviews, videos, and more on thousands of products.” Shoppers can make sure they’re getting the best product while out shopping. So now you can get those reviews instantly.
Another great comparison app for cell phones is Goodzer. Only available on the Apple App Store, it provides information on where to buy an item, from big stores to small and boutiques, as well as online. If you don’t have an iPhone, you can use your phone’s web browser on Goodzer.com.
Android users have one of the most comprehensive comparison apps there is – Google Shopper. Scan barcodes, the covers of books, CDs, DVDs, or video games to compare prices. Once the items are found you can get online prices, and locations nearby that have the item, along with seller ratings. It also provides reviews of the product, and read details about the product, including a description, related products, specifications, and videos. The app can also keep a list of products scanned and be used to create a shopping list.
Smoopa works similarly to other barcode scanner apps. The user scans a product barcode while at a store, enters the price of the item, and selects the store. Then the app compares prices in its database from Amazon, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Sears, Kmart, Office Depot, OfficeMax, CompUSA, TigerDirect, Buy.com, and more. Smoopa goes one step further and shows a green or yellow button, signifying whether the user can save money by price matching (yellow), or whether it’s a good price and the user should buy it (green). Users will need to sign up for a free account to use the app. This app works on both the iPhone and Android.
