This is going to be a short and sweet review of CompareMe. What is it? It basically lets you compare two differently packaged and priced products in a store or online to see which one is the better deal. Still confused? It’ll let you see if the 6 pack of Coke or the 2 liter bottle is the better deal, and break down all the pricing/quantity details for you in excruciating detail if you want.

The 6 pack or the 2 liter bottle...hrm...

The bottom line is that it’s easy to use, fast (due to said ease of use) and really quite useful. It converts pretty much anything you’d need converted (and if it’s not there, just email the developer because he’s super responsive to such requests) and computes the prices automatically.

Full comparison details are broken down if you'd like all the details.

Say you want to quickly compare 2 packages of a product against each other. One is sold as a .2 ounce container for $18.50 and one is sold as a 60 gram container for $116.95. Which is the better buy? Well normally, first you’d have to bring up a unit converter to figure out how many grams are in an ounce. Then with that figure in mind, you’d have to figure out the cost per gram of each, then do some more dividing and multiplying and keep track of….well you get the picture. It’s basic math, but it’s annoying to do it in a hurry unless you’re a human calculator.

The big or the small package...the price difference can be staggering!

With CompareMe, you just select the unit of measure, select the quantity, and input the price of each one you’re comparing and press Compare and it’ll tell you in an instant which one is the better buy. If you’d like more details, just click the info button and you can see the full breakdown between the two. The App is slick, easy to use, and fast.

Units and units and even more units! If you really can't find the units you're looking for, the developer is more than happy to add yet another unit for you!

There really isn’t anything more that can be said–if you ever comparison shop in store or online and want a quick way to compare two separately sized packages of a product, you want CompareMe. It’s a great app that does what it says it will do and does it easily and simply.

Panappticon Verdict: 96/100An invaluable tool for comparison shopping to ensure you always get the best deal even if you can’t convert ounces to liters. The interface makes entering in values/units of measure/packaging types super fast and super simple–don’t go shopping without it!
