"The scanning is super fast in fact faster than any other scanning app that I've tried"

"The live (i.e. real-time) barcode scanning is seriously cool"
--Rick Broida

"If you're out shopping and spot something you want to buy, but are not sure if you could get it much cheaper elsewhere, this one's for you"
--Stewart Meagher, TheInquirer.net

"Pic2shop is amazing. I saved $70 last week scanning items and finding them at a lower price at a different merchant. The store manager dropped the price to the competitors in front of me after I scanned products and showed him."
--Ryan Vital
