ScanLife Barcode & QR Reader – a shopping companion
Jul 10, 2014 5:10 PM –
ScanLife Barcode & QR Reader allows you to scan any product with your phone and get pricing, reviews, stores nearby or online plus a wealth of rewards to unlock and earn.
Tested on: HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S4
Pros & Cons:
- Extremely fast scanner!
- Plenty of information about scanned products, i.e. pricing, reviews, nearby store or online stores, etc.!
- *Collect rewards to redeem for real gift cards!
- Works as traditional QR code scanner and QR code creator!
- A bit too pushy on rewards.
- Google Play QR codes no longer opens the Play Store app but opens a web view within the ScanLife app.
The ScanLife dashboard interface gives you a choice of destinations. You can browse through scans you have previously made in My Scans. Deals show discounted items nearby and online. Discover presents an interesting feed of items scanned by users worldwide in real-time. QR Codes can now be found in the More menu. This feature lets you create your very own contact information card into the QR format to share! In Settings you make different adjustments to the app, such as sound effects and the scanner theme. The app also has a Rewards feature with mPoints where you scan for points that can be redeemed for real gift cards (only available in the U.S. however.) Though you’ll near be far from this area as the app is now more pushy towards rewards.
When have been using and reviewing ScanLife scanner app for quite some time now. Traditionally, a barcode and QR code scanner app, we notice that it shifted away from being solely a scanner to more of a real-time shopping companion. Next time you go shopping use it to easily scan product barcodes and gather information and pricing nearby and online. One fact that remained constant is just how fast it recognizes a scan– others hesitate a bit trying to catch focus but not the case with ScanLife. You can price compare stores like Amazon, Macy’s, Best Buy, and Target. If you’re located in the US and scan food items you can get nutritional facts as well.
It’s encouraged to use the app often as deals will be better catered to your scan habits and you earn rewards points. *As you stack up reward points you can redeem them for real gift cards- this includes Walmart, Amazon, Starbucks (US only). On a side note, I did notice Google Play QR codes no longer opens the Play Store app but opens a web view within the ScanLife app, making it less convenient to scan and download Android apps.
