    I used to have an app on my Palm Pre called "Dealert". I looked for it in the Android market but don't see it. I liked it because it allowed you to put in a specific product (for instance, a specific model of TV) and then it would search the deal sites or different online merchants and alert you when it found a deal for that specific product.

    Is there anything like this in the Android market? I would be very much interested in an app that does this specifically as opposed to simply searching for all deals for all products.

    TIA!

    Try "Google Shopper". It allows you to search products and list them in a list. (Rather online or store location.) Use this to compare shop. You can save your searchers and share info by e-mail, etc. Also, has reviews and detailed discription of product.

    Does it alert you when a deal for that particular product is found on some web site? I'm really looking for an application that will allow me to put in a particular product that I want to be alerted on when a deal for that product comes up on a merchant site or a deal board.

    Don't believe so. You would have to manually check.

    Thanks. I find it hard to believe that with like half a million apps in the android market or whatever it is, that there isn't one application that does what Dealert did on the Pre. Seems kinda ridiculous.

    There is probably one out there. I just don't know of any since this is not something I'm looking for. Try doing a Google search and see what you find.
