Android App Video Review: Barcode Scanner

Sep 22, 2010

Barcode Scanner is an application that tries to make your shopping experience easier. The app is essentially a combination of two different features for the Android platform.

It takes the barcode scanning feature from some apps and the amazing price library of the internet and puts them into an app that does an immediate search for prices on almost any product you can think of.

Users can scan the barcode, QR, or Data code to compare prices or other values. It’s basically the perfect tool for those looking to see what the cheapest route will be when it comes to buying a product.

The app is available for free in the Android Market and was actually pretty fun to use. I was able to check online for better deals than what the brick and mortar stores were offering and it was really fast and easy to do. I’m still not sure it was the best scanner out there due to the simple interface and lack of features, but it definitely gets the job done. Check it out.
