PriceGrabber App For iPad May Be A Good Influence On Shoppers

alt

PriceGrabber.com is making waves with its iPad-compatible app, a free download from iTunes.

The application allows the user to search for products and compare prices offered by online merchants, as well as read reviews of the products themselves and make note of favorite products for later. The Gift Shaker component generates gift ideas, and the BottomLinePrice displays the lowest possible price of the product, including tax and shipping.

We can see the appeal in an application that could alleviate the guilt accompanying an impulse buy, but remember that no matter how cheap you can find it, an unnecessary purchase may do more for your mood in that moment than for your finances in the long run.
