So, you’re in a book store and you discover a novel that you are interested in reading. Unfortunately you are not prepared to pay the full book store price. What do you do? If you use TapScanner you can add the barcode to your device and instantly see what online retailers are asking for it.

On the spot comparison shopping is a very handy option, particularly in today’s environment of financial stresses and strains. The TapScanner app’s value doesn’t end here, however, and it also allows the user to share the items they have scanned with friends on Twitter and Facebook too. This means that you might scan the barcode from that novel, post it to Facebook and instantly get some responses from friends on whether it is a good read or not.

This too can help in the decision making process because it will enable you to make an even more informed choice. If your device doesn’t have an onboard camera the app also features a manual entry screen that lets you quickly type in the numeric code beneath the printed barcode, and also get all of the same results.

There are other barcode reading apps, such as Shop Savvy, but not all of them allow the individual to compare and share information.

The cost for the app is $0.99, and all updates will be made available entirely free of charge. The TapScanner app functions with iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

If you are a bargain shopper, or just someone who enjoys a range of options when spending hard earned money, this is certainly a great tool to acquire.
