San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
The smartphone app review site tested results from ShopSavvy and RedLaser on 10 randomly selected products. Categories in the test included books, movies, home and family, consumer electronics, video games and office products. ShopSavvy produced the most local results and the most online results 100 percent of the time. ShopSavvy showed the lowest price results for both new and used items 70 percent of the time.
Alpha Digits credits ShopSavvy’s extensive database and platform for the superior results:
“Consumers wanting to find the best price comparison application would be well-served to look at more than just the app’s cool features and interesting functionality and take a longer look under the hood. The backbone of any good price-comparison app is its product database. It’s access to the prices, locations, and reviews that will determine whether or not consumers can trust it to find them the lowest prices and best local results. For example, ShopSavvy’s platform, Product Cloud 2.0, lets the app offer real-time pricing, inventory, reviews, photos, videos and other information for hundreds of millions of products. And it’s the database that lets the app outpace apps from retail giants like eBay and Amazon.”
The review concludes the comparison of the two top price-comparison apps by saying, “to sum it up, ShopSavvy is better.”
Rylan Barnes, co-founder and CTO of ShopSavvy, said the comparison test supports the effort the company has devoted to building its extensive product database.
“ShopSavvy is indeed better,” Barnes said. “It delivers more products, more information, and more low prices. ShopSavvy isn’t a retailer so we don’t favor offers from particular sellers such as Walmart, eBay or Amazon, we include the results from all of them online and in the store to deliver unmatched savings to our users. ShopSavvy is the one indispensable application for shoppers on the go who never want to overpay.”
