Prices Drop Monitor for Amazon is a simple application that lets users add products they want to track prices for.
If you use Amazon.com to do all of your shopping, Prices Drop Monitor for Amazon will be a very useful tool. Using the app is as simple as dragging and dropping URLs into the interface. Once you have a list of things you would like to buy, the app sits quietly in the system tray and will alert you to any price changes. It tracks price drops and increases as well. There are not many options to adjust. You can only toggle if you want the app to launch at start up and how often to check for new prices. Oddly, Prices Drop Monitor for Amazon can only check as often as every 4 hours, which seems like a long time. Prices Drop Monitor for Amazon should add the ability to check every hour.
Once a price change has been detected, Prices Drop Monitor for Amazon will alert users and link to the Amazon page. Prices Drop Monitor for Amazon looks at prices from all Amazon merchants so it is a bit overzealous when it finds a price drop. Many times, there were offers that were just a few cents lower but shipping is higher. We wish Prices Drop Monitor for Amazon would have a Prime only alert option and we wish it would take shipping costs into consideration as well.
Overall, Prices Drop Monitor for Amazon works well but could use with more options to adjust alerts.
