There’s nothing that takes the shine of a new purchase as
much as seeing the same item on sales for less than you paid for it moments
after you’ve emptied your wallet. The Idealo app aims to make these type of
‘doh’ moments a thing of the past. It lets you quickly compare the prices of
over 1 million products from more than 20,000 online shops to find the cheapest
You can search for products either via text, EAN numbers or by using the
built-in bar code scanner that uses your handset’s camera to capture the
barcode of products that you might spot while you’re out perusing real life
shops. The user interface is very slick and clean looking and the app responds
quickly with search results.
Idealo’s smart presentation, good range of features
and large database of retailers make it a good way to quickly compare online
prices for products.
