PriceGrabber Adds New Features to Its Android Mobile Shopping Application

Shoppers now have access to advanced shopping functionality, discount badges, and local brick-and-mortar product availability

LOS ANGELES, May 23, 2011 -- PriceGrabber®, a part of Experian, is making mobile shopping even easier with an enhanced version of the free(1) PriceGrabber Android™ application. This application offers consumers better shopping functionality, discount badges, and brick-and-mortar product availability.

PriceGrabber has increased the functionality of its shopping experience on its Android application. Shoppers are now able to share their favorite products with friends and family via email, Twitter and Facebook. They also can view enlarged product images; review detailed product specifications; and evaluate product offers of new, used or refurbished items.

The PriceGrabber Android app now shows shoppers a discount badge when a product has been heavily discounted. This badge makes it easy for consumers to locate heavily discounted items within the vast array of PriceGrabber product offerings.

Shoppers can now view the prices of products available in their local brick-and-mortar store from their PriceGrabber Android app. This feature also identifies the stock levels of specific products and gives consumers driving directions to the local store, as well as store hours. Local availability is very useful for shoppers who want to compare prices but may not have time to wait for an item to be shipped.

"At PriceGrabber, we are dedicated to the ongoing innovation and enhancement of our mobile applications," said Graham Jones, general manager of PriceGrabber. "Our commitment to the always-plugged-in consumer is evidenced by our ongoing improvement in the mobile space. We continually strive to create an entertaining and positive connection with our shoppers."
