In this paper we are proposing an Android mobile application. The main idea behind this system is to make use of localisation techniques together with information extraction techniques in order to develop a localised mobile price comparison application. This system extracts information from the web given a particular location and a source and provides price-comparison information to the end user on the mobile device. This paper briefly shows the background, methodology and evaluation of this decision support system for shoppers.
