Shoppers can now look forward to saving time as well as money with a new smartphone price comparison application that includes thousands of products available on both Irish and international websites.

Price Spy, a free app available to both iPhone and Android users, allows consumers to compare the prices of 110,000 consumer products from 400 Irish online shops, as well as thousands of international websites.

Registered users can also access ratings and reviews on the Price Spy app and website, as well as being offered the best financial deals.

And, the team behind the technology are promising "instant independent, and accurate price and product comparisons".

Price Spy was first founded almost 12 years ago, and the operations headquarters are based in Sweden.

There are currently 300,000 active users of the service, but this is the first consumer price product comparison service of its kind in Ireland.

Users can search for the best deals on an array of products.

The handy product also allows bargain hunting consumers to scan the bar codes of products in shops, which can then instantly search for a better deal online.
