Overview

You're in the shop. Do I buy three of these for this price, or two of those for that price? Which one's the bargain? You can find out easily with Bargain. Just reach in your pocket, launch the app, enter the price and quantity for each item then tap Compare. Done!

The keyboard is always visible and robust error checking and a clean and effective interface make on-the-go comparisons a doddle. A quick 'shake to clear' starts again with a clean slate.

... and it's free!

FAQ

Why are there no units like grams and kilograms?

Simplicity really. It would have been possible to offer those, or similar related units, but that's been left to more featured apps. So, with Bargain, if you have two products you are comparing and one is ₤2.38 for 800 grammes and the other is ₤3.50 for 1.2Kg, then enter 2.38 and 800 for one and 3.5 and 1200 for the other. The bargain will still be displayed.

Why doesn't 'Shake to clear' work?

This feature only works directly after a successful comparison. So, after you have tapped the Compare button and want to enter new values, shake your device. If the insertion point is in either Price or Quantity then the shake will be ignored.
