Barcode scanning applications are nothing new to iOS, and primarily iPhone users. The ability to flip a product over to the UPC and determine if you are being ripped off without even having to leave the store has been a groundbreaking evolution of the shopping experience. However, bargain hunting aside, what if from the same interface you could help you find product reviews from trusted professionals?
Barcode Hero is now going this route by not only providing price comparisons, but also adding in the ability to cross reference beauty products and video games with their respective review scores on Hearst’s RealBeauty.com and 1Up.com. Both sites are trusted and well respected sources for professional reviews, so this seems like a perfect fit.
You can download Barcode Hero for free from the link below and potentially save yourself a significant amount of misery in the future. Trust us, bad makeup decisions can last for days, and bad video games can scar for life. Protect yourself and the ones you love.
