Mobile shopping app helps save time and money - AmericaNowNews.com

Mobile shopping assistant

It's good for groceries. It's good for televisions. It's good for anything.

'It' is an app for your smart phone aimed at making you a more savvy shopper. 

Shop Savvy is free and easy to download. It allows you to compare the prices of anything with a barcode -- which is basically any item sold.

If you're at one store and wondering what the same thing costs at another store, the app tells you.

You take your phone, shoot the barcode and it will zoom in on the price, showing you online and other prices to compare so you can determine the best deal.

We scanned the barcode on a DVD player and here's what the app showed:

Walmart had the best price of $39.86. Best Buy, Target and Toys R Us had it for $39.99 and it was $7.00 more at Sears and Kmart.

Shop Savvy is one of many mobile shopping assistants. You can download the program for iPhone, Android or a Windows phone here.
