One of the nice things about CompareMe, besides it simplistic style and perfect function, is the fact that everything is easy to use. Using wheel-based menus, I can alter any data that I need to so that I can quickly come up with the comparisons. This will work well in quick-paced haggling, where delay time harms your chances of a better price. Furthermore, the actual interface is easy to use and everything responds quickly to my touch. Sure, this application might not do much, but it does what it does well.
There are, however, a few problems with CompareMe. The first is the fact that there is no database of typical pricing. With an application that is designed to be used for haggling and the like, this database, which would be stored on a server and updated daily, based on your location, would be a perfect addition. In fact, it would cause the application to be used by anybody who is comparison shopping, not just those looking to haggle. I know that they are planning on adding some location-specific features, and I truly hope that one of them is the addition of this sort of database.
My other issue is the price of CompareMe. At $2.99, CompareMe is an expensive application for something so simple, especially because it is designed to save people money. I think that cutting the price to $.99 or even $1.99 would make the application worth it. However, if they incorporate the above mentioned database, I feel that $2.99 would be a steal.
Overall, I feel that CompareMe is a good application for your iPhone or iPod Touch if you are a businessperson or do a fair bit of bulk buying. The application is really geared towards that demographic, and I think that they could find good use for it. If a database is added, then I would think that CompareMe would be good for a vast majority of Americans, but as of now, it has a limited scope. Overall, I believe that the simplicity and the fact that the program does what it is designed to do, with no annoying extras, merits 4/5 stars.
