5.0 out of 5 stars 2D and 1D barcode scanner April 24, 2011
amazing app that slows you to scan all types of barcode. after scanning it offers instant coupons and relevant price comparisons for any product you may come across. I have saved a lot of money in stored simply by scanning the products barcode and comparing with online prices in the store. the scan allows you to order your product online from competitors as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slick! (Samsung S5570 Galaxy Mini user) April 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
This worked for me instantly. Better, it let me install another Android app that both Amazon and Google Market (now Google Play) insisted wouldn't run on my S5570 Galaxy Mini Android phone. I eventually found the uncooperative app on one of the kazillion Android sites out there, held up the Galaxy's camera to the barcode image on my laptop screen and BANG...Scanlife recognized the barcode as soon as it came into the camera's field of vision and the supposedly incompatible app downloaded and installed and runs like a champ.

Scanlife works just fine over wifi only if you're a skinflint like me and refuse to pay data charges.

I see where others have had trouble with it on their devices so I guess my experience may not be typical, but I've had nothing but good luck with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and reliable February 14, 2013
As a QR lover who scans everyday, I've settled for the ScanLife app simply because it's the fastest and most reliable.
Some of the social features & price comparison features are interesting too. By far the best of the lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent simple app April 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a great app, point camera and it scans automatically and loads needed info. Works well with my ViewPad 7e, when other scan apps did not.

One downside on budget devices is you need to force stop the app or it will slow everything down to the point where it feels like it is locked up. It does help to keep the default "skin" which helps minimize the slowdown.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best all in one barcode & QR reader! January 6, 2012
The scanlife app has proven to be incredibly versatile and reliable! I have scanned QR codes in magazines, restaurant fronts, at Bus Stops, off my monitor on the internet as well! This app lets me see media of all types and lets me compare prices on alot of items in stores to see the best prices out there! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APP OVER ALL OTHER BARCODE READERS! ITS SO MUCH MORE!!!THANK YOU SCANLIFE!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars I scanned a lot of the items I usually buy ... August 18, 2014
Verified Purchase
I scanned a lot of the items I usually buy, that I had available when I downloaded the scanner. This was Canned Food, Cleaning Products, and general personal care bathroom items. There were a couple items that gave a result, but failed to provide competitive shop or coupon matches. Most of the Items either were not found, or I got an insistant screen saying that I had an old version and when I accepted the offer to update, I was sent to Google play and was not given an 'update' button, just an 'open' button. After 10 or so times (I have patience at times) I gave up, and hope to find a scanner that works. This was installed on my HTC EVO 4G phone, by the way, which has the most recent updates.
