-QR codes: visit link, add contact to address book, etc.


1. Download the FREE pic2shop app and open it
2. Point the camera at the barcode until the red line turns green (super fast!)
3. Find out where the product is cheaper and save money.
4. Each scan creates a webpage that you can share and access from any computer (not for QR codes)

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, TheInquirer.net

"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

Is this an active app any longer?

I am able to get the app to scan, however, no pricing comes up on the items that pricing always shows up on. I am just wondering if it’s still active or not.

Interesting Application

Using a 3G S Camera
It does work prvided you have read the directions and have the proper lighting.
Functionality is a little slim. It would be nice to choose what stores we get our search results from; however I dont think there is a suitable online database which you can seach UPC codes for price comparison yet.
I spent a good 30 minutes today scanning books movies and misc products to see if it could be useful during a shopping trip, but not really satisfied from where the price results came from which were mostly online stores I had never heard of.
loads of potential here and its a free app.
