Shopping Guru is a FREE mobile app to plan, shop and save with Amazon. But wait! It is not just another shopping app. It helps you make a goal driven purchases by organizing these into projects. Have you ever wondered what would it take to set up your cool home theater? Or that vegetable garden you always wanted. Shopping Guru takes the guesswork out and makes it easy to plan your purchases as projects by choosing from several out-of-the-box templates.
Think of a template as a guide for what all you should buy. For example, if you are looking to set up a home theater, just choose the Home Theater Setup template. Likewise, if you were always wanting to set up a vegetable garden, but did not have the time to research what all would be needed, use the Vegetable Garden Setup template. A template makes it easy to find the items. Of course, you can always add or remove items from the project. And, if you do not find a template that matches your needs directly, simply use the Blank Project template to create a project from scratch.
Once you set up a project, the app will provide an estimated total so that you can plan your purchases. Shopping Guru will track price drops and notify you. This way you can time your purchases and save money.
Got some ad hoc items to purchase? No problem. You can always add items and take advantage of the price drop notifications. Organize items into Item Groups for convenience. Be it wishlists, recurring items, gifts and so on, Item Groups are perfect for grouping items.
Personalize the app using Settings. Choose theme color, launch the Quick Guide, get help and more. You can also suggest a new template!

According to a 360pi report from May 2016, Amazon carried 12,231,203 different products and that didn't even include books, media, wine or services. When you add on marketplace sellers that figure increased 30 fold to over 353 million products. Apparently, Amazon accounts for over 30% of all shopping transactions in North America. The bottom line is, if you didn't know it already....they're HUGE! Now, if you're looking for something specific, their website is very user friendly and its generally pretty easy to find what you're after. However, if you have a project in mind that involves several different items to complete, it can get a little trickier. That's where this new shopping app for iOS comes in very handy.
Shopping Guru is a new free app for iOS that lets you plan and buy multiple specific projects on Amazon. It could also end up helping you to save some money on your purchases. So, what's it all about? Well, let's assume that you are planning on setting up a home theatre system in your home. First up, of course, you're going to need a tv or a projector. Then there's the receiver or preamp and the amplifier. You're going to need some speakers and a subwoofer and a source component - a DVD or Blue-Ray player. Don't forget the surge protector. Oh, and one more thing...cables and speaker wire. Is that everything? Maybe a remote control if your system doesn't have one. That's a lot of things to remember or research. Well, Shopping Guru gathers all the possibilities in one project section to make life easier for you.
Shopping Guru takes all the guesswork out of the process and makes it easy to plan your purchases - as projects - by choosing from many different 'out-of-the-box' templates. The template gives you a checklist of all the things you might need to get your home theatre up and running perfectly. Likewise, if you wanted to set up a tropical fish aquarium in your home you could select the Tropical Fish Tank template where you would see all the components needed without having to do copious amounts of research. The template makes it easy to find all the items you need to complete your project. Naturally, you can add or remove items from the project as you see fit.
If there isn't a specific template for your project you can choose a blank template and fill your own in quite easily. Once you've set up your project, Shopping Guru will give you an estimation of how much it's all going to cost so that you can plan your purchase. But that's not all. The app will also track any price drops over time and let you know accordingly so you can time your purchases to perfection and save yourself some cash. You don't have to leave it there either. If you have some other random buys that you are considering, you can organise them into groups and add them to your list and find out when they come down in price too.
If you use Amazon to buy anything - whether it be gifts, regular items or projects themselves - Shopping Guru is a must have. It will organise your potential purchases better as well as saving you money. This useful little app can be personalized to your own tastes and needs and there's even a quick guide to get you where you want to be quicker and more efficiently. At the moment, the app is only valid for the US, UK and India but expect more territories to get involved soon. Of course, it also contains many of Amazon's own site features including searching Amazon's vast database for purchases. Shopping Guru is available now for free for iPad and iPhone in the App Store.
