Ever wish you could compare an in-store item price with an online one to see which is cheaper? Or better yet - interested in what other's are saying about the product before purchasing? I know I have. Just last week in fact. After buying far too many toys that never get played with or fall apart, I've learned my lesson; check the reviews of what other mom's are saying before buying. With these fantastic new barcode scanning apps, I was able to do just that!! Talk about the perfect shopping assistant!
Barcode scanning apps have revolutionized the way people shop. They have made in-store price comparison bigger than ever. Apps like RedLaser, Shopsavvy, Stripeylines, Sccopes and Thefind are all shopping companions for bargain and info hungry shoppers who want to ensure they are getting the best deal. These apps help users to search and compare products and prices, create product wishlists and favorites, listen to scanned CDs through iTunes and instantly download, purchase directly, or post products and comments to Facebook, Twitter and eBay.
All you have to do is download the app on your phone for FREE and then the next time you're in the store, just scan the item with the barcode reader to compare pricing or to check product and customer reviews. You can also search by product code, name, brand, or browse by category. If the online-price is better than the store price you can click and buy right then and there. Some even allow you to scan a DVD and listen to the song straight from i-Tunes when trying to decide if you want to buy or not. Pure. Genius.
