Why is the price for a Domestic Beer (0.5 liter draught) different here (£3.75) to the price for the same item as found through the Prices by City (£3.71). Which is the more updated figure? Thank you!

I made an app for iPhone, and it may be helpful, or not, I don’t know. The app allows you to compare the prices of supermarkets in the UK.
As it searches directly in their websites, you can save a list and update the prices in a different day.

Here is the link:

It’s free.
