TORONTO, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Shopbrain, the AI-powered shopping assistant is taking the power of its browser extension and putting it in the hands of consumers with a new innovative app. Now Shopbrain users can find the best prices in-store or from the comfort of their home.  According to a recent survey, 51% of shoppers are frustrated with overpaying when different prices are listed across different retailers for the same item. To address this growing problem, the app's barcode scanning technology doubles down to give shoppers complete control to find the best price for their favorite items in store or at home.shopbrain best price

As with the browser extension, the app is free, doesn't require user data and scans billions of products across 10,000 retailers automatically to identify the best price. Shopbrain's expansion is an innovative necessity as 80 percent of shoppers use mobile phones inside of a physical store to either look up product reviews, compare prices or find alternative store locations*.

"It's about empowering the consumer. When shoppers search for their favorite products online or in-store, they can't guarantee that they are seeing the best price. Now they can. In fact, in the month of February alone, we found our users a better price over 50 percent of the time, with potential savings on average amounting to $50 per user," said James Cunningham, CEO and Co-Founder of Shopbrain 

The app is easy to download in the app store and available on both iOS and Android.  Now, users can immediately identify when an item is at its best price with the quick scan of a product's barcode in every store.

"We are thrilled that our service is now on smartphone devices, allowing consumers to use it anywhere, at any time. We are now bringing immediate price and transparent quality to shoppers whenever and however they shop," continued Cunningham.

Shopbrain's parent company, Yroo, was founded by James Cunningham and Nick Zhu. The Shopbrain AI-powered shopping assistant technology has expanded beyond its browser extension to a barcode app, the latest product development from the company.

To ensure you don't overpay again, consumers can visit, the Chrome Web Store or app stores for iOS and Android to use this money-saving feature.
