Bar Code Scanner Application – Great Christmas Shopping Tool!

ShopSavvy. Image by:

Have your shopping list? Check! Have your G1? Check! The G1′s barcode scanning tool called ShopSavvy is a great tool for your Christmas shopping needs.

The advantage of ShopSavvy is that comparative shopping is not a hassle anymore. When you scan a bar code off of any bar coded product into your G1, it will…

  • Automatically provide the product price (if a price tag is not provided)
  • Present you the price of the product from competitors in your area to give you the best price (with thanks to GPS)

Other features of ShopSavvy are:

  • Wish Lists – This helps you keep a list of products that you have in mind for other people.
  • Price Alerts – If you are wanting to know if a certain product decreases price over time, you may specify if you want to be alerted.

This is an instant way of getting the best deal on a product without having to go shop to shop around town, which can be very time consuming–especially during the Christmas holiday rush.

I have listed steps of how to download this handy application to your G1:

    1. Launch the Market application, then touch Applications, and then Shopping
    2. From the market applications list, choose ShopSavvy. A description of the product will appear–just scroll down and touch Install.
    3. A notification will appear stating that the application has access to: network communication, your location, and hardware controls. Touch the “Ok” button at the bottom of the screen.
    4. Once ShopSavvy has been successfully downloaded, it will then be accessible from the Applications tab.

    Please feel free to leave any feedback with regard to this excellent shopping accessory.

    I have used this application and it is just to kool. Takes a little bit to get use to the camera lineing up on the bar code . I used it today on some bamboo flooring at Costco and found that they had the best price. Get it and use it, will save you some bucks.
