Heavenly Android believes that it pays to be frugal. Why spend over the odds on something, especially a food item? A tin of Heinz baked beans is a tin of Heinz baked beans, whether you bought it from Waitrose or Lidl. So why would you want to cough up double the amount of money?

Basket Buddy HUKD Groceries is a welcome addition to the fast growing family of money saving Android apps. It's an official Android app of HotUKDeals, developed by 'Tipping Canoe', and covers an area that's been lacking particularly well. We all know that the UK's largest supermarket giants are constantly waging price wars. We're bombarded by adverts from Asda, Tesco, Morrisons etc every time we switch on our TV, each proclaiming to be the cheapest place to buy vast range of grocery items.

So where do you decide to do your weekly shop? A common modern-day practice is to visit each supermarket and pick up individual offers that appeal to you. Petrol is not a friend of this type of behaviour however, so by the time this cost is added to your shopping bill you may still be in the red after all your efforts.

So why not check out the offers in each shop, quickly and effortlessly, before jumping in your car. Basket Buddy HUKD Groceries enables you to do exactly that, allowing you to plan your shopping trip wisely.

Choose a store from the list, or search for a store in an area via the map you can access by tapping the icon at the top left hand side of the screen. Once you've chosen a store you can browse all of their offers and read comments from other users. By tapping a deal that you're interested in you're able to add this offer to favourites by tapping the star icon, or share with friends and family by tapping the share icon. You can also save stores, and to locate saved stores and offers simply tap the star item at the bottom of the screen. You can also submit deals that you've found by tapping the + icon.

It's a shame that you can't search for a particular grocery item too. I'm always on the look out for bargain basement Coca Cola, not a cheap alternative, the real deal at a cheap price! It would also be good if shop details had postcodes included too, as GPS is the way we drive to our destinations unless we're sure we know the way. Let's hope that these features are added to what is otherwise an excellent and very needed app.

Problems on Certain Devices

We have tested Basket Buddy HUKD Groceries on both a LG Optimus 3D and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Although this app works perfectly well on the LG Optimus, it's a different matter entirely on the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Doesn't work at all on this device. We respect the fact that this is a new app and will therefore suffer with teething troubles, so we expect these issues to be remedied very soon.
