Grab a bargain from ALDI in the UK with their Android app

ALDI

Another Android app which may well be of interest to UK consumers is from the supermarket chain ALDI. Whilst we don't all have a local store, their market presence is certainly growing and they sure have some attractive prices. 

The beauty with the app is that every week ALDI have what they call 'Special Buy's and the app will detail all the products that have been discounted. Select the item you like the look of and you'll be given all the product information you need along with the price. If you like what you see you can press the + tab at the top of the display and the item will be added to your shopping list ready for when you visit your local store. 

In addition to the shopping list feature there's also a store locator built in and web links to a selection of features - such as recipes, customer service or the ALDI UK homepage. 

If you are running BlackBerry 10.2.1 why not jump into Snap and install the app. It seems to work on all BlackBerry 10 handsets which is what we like to see.

If you need some help you can find a full set of instructions below:

I don't understand this article... how much paid Aldi? Or why this article?

Since 2010 

James Richardson

It's just a heads up. Take it or leave it as always. I've a local store and if I can have the app on my BlackBerry then why not?

Koepman

Ok, just was wondering why Aldi or not presenting several local stores and not only one..

Stop introducing android rubbish to BBer. The more android, the less native.

Agreed!!! Seems as though we're out of things to write

I agree. When I'm interested in Android apps I can look elsewhere. CrackBerry should help BB10 developers and BB10 users by promoting native apps only (with some exceptions here and there). There are tons of native apps and even B4BB apps, which never got any attention by CrackBerry.
And the many Android app reviews leave an impression, that only Android apps make BB10 valuable. For me these apps destroy the BB10 user experience and I avoid them as much as possible.

Agreed with you. Stop rubbish android port from colonies BlackBerry.

Support native built for BlackBerry even third party developers.

Yes, Android is forming colonies on BlackBerry and it must be stopped!!!

I agree with this.

James, head over to Android Central if you want to write about an Android app.

This article just goes to show how ridiculously few quality, native BlackBerry apps there are and how poorly the majority of Android apps behave on BB10. We've been reduced to talking about an Android app for an English grocery store.

ALDI is German, but pretty international now.

They have awesome bargains, and use of this app will certainly "pay" for itself in savings many times, even though it's just Android.

ALDI had no stores north of Bundaberg / Gympie / Hervey Bay, when I last checked.

We are still getting ripped off hard-core by Coles and Woolworths up here in North Queensland, they are a dubious duopoly that needs to be busted.

Wow - if Aldi are offering bargains, they must be paying us to take it off them...

Me... i would like an article about fake app in BlackBerry World with fake reviews and not this kind of useless article about an android app.
It's time to be involved or to leave.

Works in the US too if you get the US version. Not sure what all the hate is for.

Was going to ask why this was only for the UK lol.

So the logo looks like the same one from the States. The one here only has generic everything, no name brands. Definitely different.

Does it cover ALDI's in the US? They have reasonable prices. I'll try and see.

BlackBerry users need to accept that's it's a new world now, BlackBerry the company finally has. You should too.

BB 10 has given us the ability to use Android apps I see nothing wrong with James highlighting them when he comes across good ones.

I'm not an Aldi shopper myself, but James keep them coming and thanks for drawing our attention to good apps whether BlackBerry native or Android.

Love the sales model. Fast to get around. Superb quality (bar a handful of items - teenagers in my house won't eat the crisps as they are "dirt"). Prices are predictable with no wasteful BOGOF offers. Consistently 30% cheaper as stated in their TV ads where they use real folk (not actors). Sadly can't get Snap on my Z30 as it is blocked by IT policy.

Using it long time, but I like LIDL better :)

Installing this app is sooooo easy. I wonder why more android users don't switch to Blackberry.

nlygo

"Powered by BlackBerry" Z30's are addictive as Crack

Thanks for the heads up, James. We have ALDI in the states and SWMBO and I shop there. It never occurred to me that they might have an app. I looked in SNAP and found one for our area - and it works really great. Thanks again for bringing it to my attention.

Prem WatsApp

Have ALDI here in Australia, too.

They just don't deliver to Far North Queensland.

Bundaberg, Gympie and Hervey Bay I think are the last stores on the trek north.

Cashews are like around $11 per 750g, whereas Woolworths and the others want like $15 for the same stuff. Can't have cheap Cashews up here!

What a waste of space. Was there no decent native app you could've supported and informed your readers about today?

Enough whining about "android invasion"! Adapt and overcome. ALDI is an excellent place to shop. Quality throughout and value for your hard earned money. They are expanding rapidly here in the US, and for good reason.

James thank you for the heads up. I've been an "early adopter" ALDI shopper for quite a while.

Yes, their stuff is *very* affordably priced for the quality they deliver.

I wish Coles and Woolies would feel the heat up here in North Queensland.

Still glad that I at least have the **option** to make my Berry a more useful phone by installing the odd Android app. Gimme native any day though.
