The Idealo app features an intelligent Barcode Scanner, which allows users to read a barcode and then find and compare that particular product. In addition, users can browse through Idealo's countless product recommendations at the touch of a finger. For each product, the app shows the price, availability and delivery costs, as well as picture galleries, an extensive spec sheet and a 90-day price history. Products can be added to favourites, refreshed at the touch of a button and sent on by email.
The app also provides the option of disabling pictures, allowing the relevant price and product information to be accessed even with a poor reception or limited data plan.
As well as the UK, Idealo's iPhone price comparison service covers offers from Germany, Austria, and France.
The Idealo iPhone app is now available from the iTunes App Store here: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/idealo/id454415640?mt=8
