Description

Price Helper is made for someone who wants to know or be reminded of the best price he should pay for food items.

Purpose: Considering the vast varieties of food, grocery stores and specials of the week, it becomes difficult to track where or what is the best deal, or if you are paying really too much for a particular item.

This is were Price Helper comes in handy!

With price helper, you can add all of you favorite items that you purchase with characteristics about each one of them.

The most important characteristics are the the price and the quantity.

Example: An example to see how Price Helper would work is to look at the price for rib steak. Usually I shop at 3 places:

1) A wholesale store that sells huge packages, but it is always the same price.

2) The regular grocery store, and every now and then the ground beef goes on special, and

3) A specialty butcher shop that sells nice cuts meats

Is it worth it to buy my rib steak at the grocery, wholesale or at the butcher? So I have made an entry in Price Helper with the special price of the week:

Rib Steak

Price on special:4.99$

Regular Price: 6.99$

Butcher: 7:99$

Packaging quantity : for 1 pound

Store: Regular Grocery

So the next time I go to my wholesale store and I see the beef's price: 4.59$ a pound I know it is a good price, or when I go to the butcher's and I see a 5.99$ for a pound, I also know it is quite a good deal compared to the grocery store.

Features:

Food items can have a lot of characteristics:

-Major food group

-picture (small and high definition)

Sorting of the main list

-The main list can be sorted on any characteristics for better functionality and display

Search

-

The list can be search on any specific item and is fully configurable.

New Item Wizard

A fully configurable wizard that helps you add an item.

When an item is added, you can enter only the characteristics that are wanted and skip the less important one.

The wizard is also fully configurable to only display the items that you want.

Import/Export feature

You can fully import and export you list on you PC using Open Office.

With the very useful feature of Importing, you can type in your list on your PC and import it into Price Helper. It is much more efficient than adding every item with your iPhone.

If you already have a list of prices, it can be adapted to to Price Helper CSV file format. You can also export the pictures. Wifi is required for exporting the list and

Wifi or 3G connection is required to import the inventory into the iPhone.

The way to import your list of items on the iPhone:

1: By following instructions on the screen. (Wifi connexion required)

-You can also have a separate list of items for favorites or items needed

What is is not:

Price Helper is not a database of all the prices from all the stores around the world or around your country. All the items and prices need to be entered by the user.

There are a lot of fruits, vegetables, meats, etc that are already in Price Helper in order to make the user input easier and faster, but the user still needs to tell Price Helper the price he paid for each item.

Also, Price Helper does not share prices with other users over the Internet.
