What does it do?
Skinflint is an independant price comparison application for IT hardware, consumer electronics, home & garden, sports & leisure and health & beauty. The application allows you to compare prices on the go and even scan a barcode to locate the product you are looking for. The app will then locate the nearest place to purchase this product and display the varying prices, allowing you to find the cheapest price. Search for products by product name or alternatively scan the barcode directly into the Skinflint app! The app also displays reviews and customer opinions of products and all price include delivery cost also so the price you see will be the price you pay! Skinflint can sort the results in order of price, product rating or number of offers and the app is fully integrated with social networks such as Facebook and Twitter so that you can share your favourite products with friends.
What’s the verdict?
Skinflint is a handy price comparison application – the main impressive features are its location based searches and the barcode scanning capability. Find the products you need exactly when you need them, even scan them in one shop to see if anywhere nearby can beat their price! With a strong technology focus, Skinflint will guide you to the best places to save your pennies and use the location services to find you the nearest place! Here at izzyj we met the guys from Skinflint at Apps World 2012 and it was great to chat to them about this brand new app which recently hit the market. Our interview with Brian at Skintflint will soon be available on the izzyj Youtube Channel so keep your eyes peeled – we were lucky enough to get a demonstration of the app too!
