About Icon


Many retail stores do not display price per unit, making it difficult to determine the best value between two products with different units.

Compare is a beautifully simple price-comparison app that shows the best value-for-money between two products.

Simply enter the price and units for each product and Compare will instantly show which one is the best value.

Compare is designed to be simple and intuitive with no unnecessary features. We have had requests for barcode scanners and product pricing databases but we have intentionally kept Compare simple and focused so it’s quick and easy to use.

Please email support@lucid.co.nz if you have any problems with the app rather than asking support queries in the reviews or before leaving a negative review. We will do our best to address any issues promptly.

An excellent design: “This app reminds me of the kind of design that Apple comes up with. Here we have software that excels not only because it does what it's supposed to do, but also because it does nothing more. It's beauty is in it's simplicity; filler material found in some other apps won't be found here. … In short, I thank Lucid Design for this wonderfully simplistic yet useful app. I look forward to seeing what this company comes up with in the future.” — David Asselin, United States

Handy app: “Great, handy little app to have on your phone, especially when doing the weekly supermarket shop so that you can see really what are the 'money saving deals'! Does exactly what it says. Well done.” — dacre79, New Zealand

Simply excellent: “This app is really quite useful in supermarkets etc. It can get quite confusing with buy 1 get 1 1/2 price, 3 for the price of 2 etc. etc. This app simply and easily cuts through the eyewash and tells you which offer is the REAL value for money. No bells, no whistles, but very good at what it does. Get it, you won't be disappointed.” — Tommy2phones, United Kingdom
