Once you click on a product that you might have been looking for, the app will break down the logistics of the item’s price, description and distance away from item location.

This Price Patrol app is useful all year-round. The app is user friendly, the graphical interface is clean and runs smoothly, the information is accurate and the search engine features enough brand name products for users to search for nearly anything at any store. It will show you deals in popular stores like Wal-Mart, GameStop, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, Sears and Lowe’s. You will not likely find local “mom-&-pop” stores in this app.
The wide variety of product categories include animal supplies, electronics, hardware, office supplies, toys, sporting goods and car equipment. Although the app contains a lot of categories, it would be more impressive if more food grocery items were featured in the search engine. This element would really separate itself from other shopping search applications. Nevertheless, this is a great app to use if you simply want to find the best deals for products in your area.
This Price Patrol app is free to download in the Google Play store and will only take up no more than 22MB on your phone.
