Actually grabs correct info from barcode!

I downloaded several similar APPs to see which one I prefer. Out of all the ones I was able to try without registering, this was the only one that scanned the barcode, filled in the correct info (full name and price) and attached an actual image of the product! I tested it using a box of Pop-tarts. Some other APPs didn't fill in any info while one filled in ”toaster pastries.” The whole point of scanning barcodes is because I'm lazy, and I don't want to input an entire bag of groceries! (Seriously, who has time for that?) This APP actually gets the job done.

The UI is also very nice with proper iPad UI. Maybe I'm just easy, but I was sold and paid for the upgraded version.
