Hi folks,

I was actually contemplating writing my own price-comparison app for my wife and I, when I came across Price Cruncher (for Android):

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ca.brainservice.pricecruncher.free 

This app is really slick. The unit conversion and bulk-packaging system is slick. For example, you can enter toilet paper as $28.99 for 30 rolls of 308 sheets per roll, and it automatically converts to a per-sheet price for comparison to other purchase options (at the same store, different stores, etc.). Man, I have wanted something like this for so long... I'm going nuts entering prices into this thing today. I can't wait to go shopping again!!

If it did per square foot I would be more interested as the way toilet paper rolls from Costco vs Charmin are much different in width. Squares of toilet paper are not even square anymore. I prefer to compare price per 100 sq ft. It will blow your mind when you think you compare that way. BTW Costco rolls are 1-2" wider than Charmin.

The app uses what units you tell it. I originally started with sqft for the same reason, but then switched to sheets because it was easier to enter. We only buy Charmin Ultra-Soft, so comparisons are apples-to-apples for us anyway.
