    What's a good bar code app??

    I want to scan an item and have it checked to see who is selling it at and what are the prices with a location if possible......

    What does yours do and how do you like it??

    Thanks in advance...:)

    shopsavy regularly saves me money. I just bought new headphones at best buy for half of the price they were selling it at. I scanned the barcode, found it half price, went over to customer service and showed them. Since they have a price match policy, they matched it. Well worth the download

    I used to have both Shop Savvy and Barcode Scanner, but ever since Shop Savvy released an update to read QR codes and barcodes of products, it fits all of my needs. It has definitely saved me some money as well.

    +1 for barcode scanner. I might have to give Shop Savvy a try, to see which one is better.

    Let's see: there's NeoReader from NeoMedia that is available for Droid phones. i-nigma from 3GVision is also available for Droid platforms. ShopSavvy is another very popular app for smartphones including Droid.

    Barcode.com actually did an interview with one of the developers Alexander Muse of ShopSavvy not too long ago.

    Download them both, they're free. Try them both when you're trying to save money, who knows, one could save you more money than the other.

    I've been trying to use barcode scanner while shopping around but it doesn't find anything. It reads the barcode and gets it correct but never finds a matching a product. Maybe 1 out of 100 times it finds a product. I'll have to try ShopSavvy and see if that works any better.

    I'm also interested in knowing which is better between ShopSavvy and Barcode Reader. Since apparently ShopSavvy can now read QR codes, I guess the real question is which of the two apps can recognize more products and give more relevant price results?

    Apparently Google has also come out with a scanner/shopper app called "Google Shopper". It is in the market and is a "Google Labs" app, so it sounds like it still has some bugs and functionality problems.

    Has anyone had any luck with Google Goggles recognizing QR codes?
