Goggle Shopper is a great place to start. It allows you to check the price of an item in a variety of different ways. You can scan the barcode or use the camera on your phone to take a picture of the product. You can even search by saying the name of the product if you’re using a device with voice command enabled.
Once the app knows what you’re looking for it will return with the best prices from the web. The app can even be used to locate your nearest local stores, which could help you save money on petrol.
RedLaser is a price comparison app powered by eBay. Just like Google Shopper you can search by barcode, image or voice. The app will then return the prices for thousands of retailers presenting a mixture of online and offline results in an easy to use format.
RedLaser will even return prices for the local stores it lists which is as useful as it is impressive. It really is the perfect app for bargain hunters.
Groupon is the daddy of all deals websites and now you can make the same savings by shopping with your phone. You can keep track of all the new deals from anywhere and redeem the offers straight from your phone.
Just like Facebook Deals, Groupon uses your location to bring you the nearest deals. Let’s just hope there’s an offer on whatever you’re looking for.
This one’s a bit different, but the XE Currency App is an essential bit of kit for any frequent traveler who wants to save money. It lists the live exchange rates for every currency in the world and updates every single minute. You can even find out the going rate for different precious metals which is pretty cool.
The currency converter is particularly useful for shopping abroad as it will tell you how much the item you’re looking at would cost at home. You can even use one of the 30,000 currency charts to work out whether the current exchange rate is good or bad.
