ScanLife Barcode Reader
With four different types of barcode reader ScanLife provides price comparison data from an extensive list of websites offering product pricing, coupons and sale deals. The app can scan QR Codes, Datamatrix, EZcode, and UPC codes on products and any other printed material, even a business card, as long as it is readable. Each barcode reader allows you to retrieve specific types of data. For instance, the UPC code can give you comparison pricing, reviews, coupons, nutritional information (US only) and also editorial information on books and DVDs.
Simply use the BlackBerry camera to snap the code on a product, the app scans the barcode and immediately launches a website, video or online product offer. This way you can see what other products are valued for elsewhere plus get updates on special deals. If you prefer, you can search for an item using the manual search feature.
Most BlackBerry cameras will be able to scan a 2D barcode - Datamatrix, EZcode and QR core. However, only phones that have an auto-focus camera can read UPC barcodes, such as the BlackBerry Tour or Storm. If you have an older phone, remember all is not lost -- you can always type the barcode number to retrieve the same results.
