A new iPhone app allows consumers to compare grocery prices at supermarkets such as Asda, Sainsbury’s and Tesco – on their mobile phones.
Independent shopping website MySupermarket has launched a free iPhone app that compares the prices of everyday supermarket items to help you find the cheapest price.
You can also use the app to scan barcodes while you’re shopping to check whether the item is cheaper elsewhere.
