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.
If there is one thing that drives me nuts, it is wasting money. Sadly, during my annual fridge cleaning sessions, I find myself throwing out far too many items that I had purchased with every intention of consuming, or prepared with every intention to finish. This means that simply by being inattentive to my cooler, I have proven myself to be a wasteful hypocrite.
For this very reason developer Input Squared has released an neat little tool that will help folks like me keep track of precious perishable goods stored in the refrigerator. FreezerView will not only show visually what should be behind door #1, but even provide notifications when items are approaching their expiration date. These are the kinds of tools that I wish existed when I was a bachelor, because it would have saved me a small fortune in curdled milk. Well, at least I knew I had a never ending supply of cottage cheese...
