Scan Barcodes and get product pricing and information from the internet in seconds!

You will find Barcode Scanner useful for two major tasks:

1. Price Shopping: Just scan the product you are thinking of purchasing, and in seconds you get links and pricing from thousands of online retailers.
2. Replacing household or business items and/or consumables: When you run out of a product just scan it and in two or three clicks the least expensive replacement product is in route to you.

Shopping Lists will save you time and money:

Create Multiple Shopping Lists: From the scan screen you can select the shopping list where you want your scanned product saved. Create as many as you would like! You can even email the list or individual products to your friends.

Now with 2 UPC Entry Modes:

1. Full-Auto Scan (just hover the camera in front of the barcode, no push button needed)
2. Manual UPC entry using on-screen keypad. Good for iPad, iPod and small or otherwise un-scannable barcodes.
