Works great if you are scanning stuff to find where to get that item online or what the best online price is, but beyond that, meh.. nothing special..
Does not tell you where to get it cheaper locally.
It still is great reassurance when you use it and find that online is about the same price. if you consider shipping and handling and the amount of time shipping takes and all that junk. Shop Savvy seems to do the same thing but it shows local. You get similar results with the two of online deals. but I still keep both because there some times seems to be differences.
I suggest you do the same, use both, you can’t really go wrong.
There have been plenty of really good updates to zxing barcode scanner.
Dang thing is really cool. You just kind of have to drop the understanding you have of the other bacode scanners.
Zxing is now one of my “must have” aps
