Though it is not encouraged in many office settings, salary comparison is common and provides important information for people looking for new jobs or promotions.

The app can help in job searches, giving people an idea of how much they should be making or offered in an interview. While salaries should be similar across professions, they are often location-specific, making 'WageSpot' useful and differentiating it from other wage-researching services like 'Glassdoor.'

The salary comparison app also allows users to filter through categories such as age, gender and experience. This provides users with an expectation for what pay category they fall in, as well as to monitor the differences, perhaps unfair, between certain categories. To gather this information, WageSpot requires users to input their own salary, position and location, leaving more personal data like name, age and gender optional.
