CompareMe – Compare Prices Between Products

Available In: App Store       Price: $1.99  

CompareMe CompareMe is a shopping utility that allows you to compare prices between products. At a first glance you might think; “What a basic little app” but, after further review, you would realize that CompareMe has quite a few “hidden” features.

The most predominate feature of this application is the ability to input the amount, unit and price of two items in order to compare them and find out which one is the better buy. You are able to choose from a large selection of Units allowing you to compare basically any two items. Once the information has been added, you are quickly given a comparison detailing how much you would save (the discount %) and how much extra you would pay (the premium %) depending on which item you purchased.

GasBag – Coming Soon

GagBag by jamcode LLC is an application that allows you to search for the cheapest gas based on location. It looks as though you are also able to search by the type of gas you are looking for or by specific gas station. The app is currently in private beta but I’m sure it wont be too long before we see it in the AppStore. It will be interesting to see what database the information is pulled from and how up-to-date it is. If it turns out to be decent…it might be an application that ends up on the “must have” list.

Watch “GasBag” on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
