WHO LOVES pic2shop?

"== Don't go shopping without it! ==
I've been using this app a lot over the last 4-5 years, mostly while shopping for toys for my son. For me, it is able to find the product 9 times out of 10. This app will save you lot of money, and it's free! It will, with the quick scan of the bar code tell you right there in the store if you are about to do a bargain price, or if you should walk away and get that product elsewhere."
-- Rickard1234

"The live (i.e. real-time) barcode scanning is seriously cool"
--Rick Broida

"If you're out shopping and spot something you want to buy, but are not sure if you could get it much cheaper elsewhere, this one's for you"
--Stewart Meagher,

"Pic2shop is amazing. I saved $70 last week scanning items and finding them at a lower price at a different merchant. The store manager dropped the price to the competitors in front of me after I scanned products and showed him."
--Ryan Vital

Works great, saves $$$

This app has helped me find a product on the Internet many times when a local store doesn't have the size or color I'm looking for. It also helps me figure out whether the local price is reasonable considering the help I'm getting, and the "speed" of local pickup. It has saved me some major $$$ when the online price has been significantly less.

In most store lighting the barcode scanner works perfectly (with both my older 3GS phone/iOS 3, and my newer 4 iPhone), and the search feature is reliable. Sometimes I have to search the product box for the correct barcode (shoes often have two different barcodes), but only one will scan into pic2shop.

I love this little app, and it's one of the few I haven't put away into a folder on my iPhone 4.

Great job incorporating feedback of previous versions

This version is significant improvement over previous version which I gave one star that I felt it did not even deserve. My key complaint then was the assumption made by the application developer that the average user would be able to keep the camera steady enough to get a correct scan on the first try. I even suggested they incorporate image stabilizing software.

Well I am pleased to say the new live scan feature worked on the first try. I was at Costco and I wanted to get information on a Casio keyboard. I opened the application and positioned the phone so the UPC was visible. And before I knew it, the scan completed and it was actually correct on the first try! I was pleasantly surprised. The capture button on the screen that made it that much more difficult to get a steady image is gone in this version!

I see myself using this more often now. However I wonder how well it will worked on curved surfaces such as a soda bottle...
