Latest Barcode Scanning App – Consumer Reports

If you have a smartphone, then you know how having internet access at the store can definitely come in handy, particularly if you’re checking out a new product. Now, with the Consumer Reports Mobile Shopper app for the iPhone and iPod Touch, users can gain full access to trusted product reviews.

By simply scanning the barcode of a product, the app will show Consumer Reports’ rating for the product, in addition to similar products and pricing information. This information will allow users to determine whether the product is worth it and gives insight into where to buy. There’s even a feature to share your finds with friends and get their opinion via e-mail or Facebook. In addition, Consumer Reports partnered with PriceGrabber in order to show the best prices for products both online and in the store.

Since Consumer Reports is a trusted name, I think that the app will do very well. What do you think— would you use this app? Let us know by commenting here, or our Facebook or Twitter pages.
