TheFind is a shopping app that makes it easy to shop for anything you like, in every store, all at once. You can save your favorite stores and products, set up Price Watches, and share deals with your friends.
TheFind: Shopping is an app for iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android. TheFind helps you shop smarter wherever you are. You can easily check online and local store pricing, and locate coupons and shipping deals.
To search for a product simply type its name, or better yet - scan the product's bar code (UPC bar codes are usually found on the packaging) to immediately find its price with all retailers. You can compare prices online or at stores near you and even set a Price Watch to snag a great deal.
Best of all, you can add your favorite products to your My Finds drawer, then access them later either on your phone or on your computer to complete your research, check prices, or simply share with friends!
First, find the product's barcode on the packaging or store shelf. Click the Scan button in your app. The phone automatically switches to camera mode. Focus on the barcode (no click required) and "ping" - after a few seconds the barcode will be recognized, and you'll see where it's available!
With TheFind, shoppers can quickly and easily discover:

Price Watch lets you set a target price for a specific product and receive alerts when TheFind finds the product for that price (or lower). Price Watch is based on barcodes and is currently available only for scanned products. You must be logged in to use Price Watch.
Once you've scanned a product barcode, tap "Set Price" to set a target price for the product. You may also choose to restrict results to your MyFinds Stores. You can set Price Watch on multiple products, and manage them through the Settings Page.
When Price Watch is active, the app runs a price check each time it is restarted (not exceeding once per day) and alerts you if lower prices are found. If you have not started the application for a week, the app will ask you for permission to run a price check. You can disable these weekly notifications by configuring Price Watch.
Click "Configure Price Watch" on the Settings Page. This will open a panel with options to manage Price Watch settings and reminders.
Click "Configure Price Watch" on the Settings Page. This opens the configuration panel. Touch the "Price Watch Reminders" switch to toggle reminders "On" and "Off". Note that this will disable only the weekly price check requests. While running the application, Price Watch works in the background.
Price Watch Reminders do not function on pre-iOS4 devices. This setting is unavailable (grayed out).
Price Watch requires you to be logged in and is currently available only on the page that displays Scan Results.
Price Watch is tied to a specific device. All data is stored on the device and is not portable across other devices & computers.
Yes! After searching, click on the "Find My Stores" tab to see matches that are restricted to your favorite stores. Review your stores at any time by opening your MyFinds drawer and looking in the Stores tab.

We are continuously adding barcodes to our vast catalog of products. However, sometimes an item may not be recognized by our app. Try scanning it one more time. If the app still doesn't find it, please ensure the scanner is working for you by trying it on another product.
Note: TheFind app only supports scanning for standard UPC-A barcodes and 2D QR codes on iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4, and Android v2.x handsets. Make sure that you align the barcode edges with the arrows on the screen when you scan. The barcode must be upright. For best results, avoid shadows or glare.
At TheFind we're committed to continually improving our website, our mobile app and, most importantly, your shopping experience. We welcome feedback from both shoppers and merchants. Click here or go to the Settings Page and select "Send us your comments" in the mobile app.
For your convenience we save up to 50 recent searches and 50 recent scans without requiring login. Saving a product to the MyFinds drawer requires login.
Occasionally the phone is unable to get a fix on your GPS location. This could delay the response. Please verify that GPS services are turned on for the application; or that you have set a location (city or ZIP code) in the Settings Page.
