Saving money is a top priority on everyone’s list these days. Searching for the best available deal has replaced most people’s desire for the frivolous impulse buy. Now, before making a purchase, many consumers shop around, searching a variety of stores and online retailers to find the best pricing for their desired item.
With PricePad by Blue Ring Mobile, users can quickly embark on their deal-searching endeavors by simply scanning a barcode. Using convenient barcode scanning technology, iPhone 3GS users can use their device’s camera to scan the barcode of whatever item they are looking at, immediately finding the best deals on the Internet. For users whose device lacks a camera, just type in the item’s name or manually input the barcode number to find the same deals.
Using Google Product Search, users can compare retail-store prices with online deals, which can certainly come in handy in stores that offer price guarantees matching online deals. Once you find a great deal, record the name of the store and even share your info with anyone on your contacts list.
Upon start up, users may choose to have the barcode scanner open right away. Then, for an accurate reading, align the barcode with the scanner’s brackets and hold your phone steady. The scanner will automatically process the barcode and load various pricing results quite quickly. Though this scanning can only be done on an iPhone 3GS, all of PricePad’s other major conveniences can be enjoyed on your other Apple devices with manual input, which isn’t as burdensome as it may sound.
As you accumulate items, users may save their information in the form of lists specifically dedicated to certain types of products. From books and video games to tools and office supplies, PricePad comes with ready-made categories while allowing users to create their own with the ‘+’ icon in the top right corner. Plus, create a grocery list and it will sort what you buy each week by last purchase date. This will surely help you find the best deals at your neighborhood supermarkets so you and your family can save on every day’s most necessary items.
In the end, the small price tag attached to PricePad will have you saving on every item you could possibly think of, all while taking the effort out of your search. And, if you have an iPhone 3GS, simply take PricePad with you on your regular shopping endeavors in order to keep track of anything you may be looking to buy. Save money, time and energy – three things there’s just too little of to begin with!
