Amazon Releases Free Price Check App To Help You With Your Black Friday Shopping



Black Friday’s an exciting time of the year for the gadget hound, but let’s face facts: so many of those big box discounts are purely illusory, and you can already get an equivalent or better price through

That’s why Amazon has released Price Check, a free iOS app that lets you quickly check Amazon’s price on a product by scanning barcodes, snapping a picture, saying the product’s name aloud or typing it in to search. If the price is better, you can then easily add it to your shopping cart.
