    I downloaded a barcode scanner & it only seems to read the android download barcodes & nothing else. When I point it at a barcode from the store, nothing happens. The app just keeps focusing & unfocusing w/ green dots appearing.

    I can't find a download for "shop savvy" for some reason. Do I have one of the same?

    I used the ShopSavvy & I thought it searches for other stores that have the product scanned w/ the location & price of item.
    I scanned a common item I had at my house & it said no other areas had the product. Why's that? It was Heinz catchup.

    I scanned a book just now with ShopSavvy and it gave me 19 places to get it. Try it on something like that.

    Barcode scanner here as well, I was in best buy the other day and they had bar codes you can scan to get more info on products. Worked great. I have scanned many other bar codes and it found them on the internet just fine. Also the installing of apps is sweet.

    A long time ago I was in Borders and was one of the first times I had access to WiFi. I scanned a book with Shopsavvy and it said no network access. I turned off WiFi and scanned again. This time I got several places with varying prices. I learned then that not all WiFi is created equal.

    ShopSavvy also works good if you photograph the cover of a book.

    When i first DLed Barcode Scanner, I scanned everything in my pantry just to test. I learned the warehouse club sized coffee is expensive to buy online... so it definitely scans more than QR codes.

    Saw a jawbone in the mall at Radio Shack, it was $89.oo, scanned it and found it online for $47.00 so yes it is useful.

    I scanned a loaf of Wonder Bread at my grocery store & it said it was a back pack selling for $19 on Amazon.com. What kind of crapola is that. Time to uninstall shopsavvy.

    I use barcode scanner not shopsavvy, and why would you scan Wonder bread? I use it for slightly larger ticket items than a loaf of bread.

    I stopped using ShopSavvy because it was using the GPS at random times, for no reason, when I wasn't even running it.

    I do not like that.

    My 1st time using it & wanted to send it through a "test drive". If it's called Shop"Savvy", it should give you good results regardless of what ticket item it is.
    I did staple items like Heinz Ketchup, got no results. It said there were no other place that carried it.

    Like I said I don't use shopsavvy, I use barcode scanner, not the same app.

    Just for grins I scanned the Heinz Ketchup in my fridge and it worked. Try barcode scanner. Then again the top result was Amazon. I don't buy my ketchup online so that's why I would not scan a loaf of bread or ketchup. Now a jawbone online that's almost half the price of radio shack at the mall, that's worth scanning.

    I wouldn't buy anything from Amazon. It's not worth it.
