Editors' review

If you believe in comparison shopping, do yourself a favor and download ShopSavvy. The free, ad-supported app seeks out prices for goods when you either scan the barcode with your Android camera or type in the product name. ShopSavvy then spools out online prices and local offerings at major brick and mortar stores. You can read other peoples' product reviews, and can save what you like to a wish list. When you select a Web entry, you can view it in the browser, e-mail the link to a friend, or broadcast your find on Facebook or Twitter. ShopSavvy's price alert feature is a nice touch, alerting you when a product's price meets your criteria.

As neat a concept as price comparison apps are, you'd do well to take ShopSavvy with a crystal of salt. It's a good starting point, but the app's inventory and pricing aren't always true to life, especially in brick-and-mortar stores. In addition, the company's concentration on major retailers like Wal-Mart and Best Buy means it often skips smaller outfits--capturing each local store in each local market would be an enormous undertaking. To get the best deal, you may need to tap your local knowledge and conduct some independent research beyond the app.

    "Doesn't do what it promised"

    September 03, 2012   |   By Dave_Kirshen

    Version: ShopSavvy for Android 4.6.6

    Pros

    Fast barcode scanner.
    Looks nice (but as I mentioned - just looks nice and do nothing).

    Cons

    Not reliable!
    Can't find many products.
    No pricing is returned.
    Many products show up as 'Unknown Product' (even when picture of it is available.
    No online or local listings are given.

    Summary

    Rubbish -Useless App! I've uninstalled this app.

    Use alternative better apps such as
    Price Rhythm - one place for all product research(for Android, iPhone, Blackberry, WP) or
    Red Laser - great barcode scanner(for Android and iPhone).
    Out Of Milk - very useful app for groceries and shopping lists.

    "Not Reliable"

    February 21, 2012   |   By Maverick94

    Version: ShopSavvy for Android 4.6.6

    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Cons

    Shopsavvy states price at local store is one thing, when you get to the store it is always something else (always higher) than stated on Shopsavvy.

    What good is a price comparison app that is never accurate?

    Summary

    I have uninstalled this app.
