    I'm looking for an app where I can do the following:

    I want to buy say a plasma tv. I put the word "plasma" into the app and it searches the deal websites (slickdeals, etc) and gives me the results. However, it also continues to leave the word in as a search until I choose to remove it and when I open the app it finds new deals with the word "plasma" or does a background search on a set interval for the word "plasma" in the deals. I just came over from webos and was using an app called dealert that did this wonderfully....it is an app I am really missing. If there is something out there please, please let me know. Here is the link for dealert if that is helpful

    Google shoping might be a option

    Does google shopping let you specify a keyword or item.

    i also would love something like this (also had dealert) i can't find a similar app in the android market - anyone have any ideas if there is a 'tracker' type shopping app available?

    I'm not overly familar with dealert, but check out Shopsavvy. It has:

    • A deals section
    • Barcode scanner
    • Search
    • Shows you the best local price and the best online price for a product
    • Save products into lists (like "Anniversary Ideas" or "Mom's Christmas Ideas" or create your own)
    • Set up alerts to be notified when a product reaches a certain price-point


    Hope that helps.

    D'oh. My bad. Apparently this was removed in v4: What happened to the old Price Alert Function?

    Sorry....I thought it was still there.
