Shopsavvy vs Compare Everywhere vs Barcode scanner

Shopsavvy finds almost all the electronics you can scan. The price comparisons are good too. The killer features is the alerts though. Be sure to use it during christmas shopping!

Compare everywhere finds more house hold items than shop savvy. Jam jars, soups, coke cans, it can find anything. A tad slower than shopsavvy though.

Barcode scanner performed the worst. It needs an improved barcode database.

With the competition starting to heat up among android apps, the app that provides the most open data with spam prevention and data cleaning features would be the winner. Think wikipedia, not microsoft office.


  1. Regarding ShopSavvy:

    In an effort to educate the public and raise the question of patentability, NeoMedia has multiple patents that cover scanning UPC codes with a camera enabled mobile device to connect to the Internet, comparison shop, and/or retrieve online content.

  2. Here is a really good kind of barcode scanner. It's so perfect that I have never used. KDC data collector is the smallest barcode scanner in the world. Compact, light and powerful reader with a rechargeable battery, OLED display, top of the line laser barcode scan engine, large memory and connections to PC, PDA and Mobile Phone using Bluetooth, Serial and USB.
