Barcode reading is really rather useful. In the case of Barcode Reader and Barcode Reader Pro, it enables users to find the lowest price for an item within the US simply by taking a photo of the relevant barcode.
Barcode Reader has also now become the first and only barcode scanning app that works with the iPad 2 as well as all other iOS devices.
The app enables users to search through a whole wealth of places in the quest to find the best price. It searches eBay, Amazon, Target, Google Product Search, Walmart.com and many others offering a comprehensive price comparison service.
There's also a built-in browser to help users read more about a product and it's possible to use the current location to find prices in nearby stores.
All in all, Barcode Reader could be a great way of saving money for the savvy shopper.
It's available now in free and paid ($0.99) forms and as previously mentioned, it's currently the only barcode scanning app out there for the iPad 2.
