Pretty handy for archiving any collection. I've been using it to verify details of my CD collection. While more obscure releases don't garner much info from Scan Life, most do -- all the way down to UPC and EAN numbers. Newer releases even have the full calendar date.
Works ok under the right conditions. Your bar code needs to be the right size and you should use a tripod because of the Uber slow focusing. As long as you follow these guidelines and don't expect to find your item in their database it works fine.
Works great! It is good for finding product info as well as local and Internet deals. The only thing I don't care for is all the messages it sends you on a product you have scanned. I will often scan something simply for more information rather than to find low prices. Yet I will get all these notifications on a product just because I scanned it. It would be nice if you could disable the messaging and/or notifications you receive after scanning a product.
Doesn't work The concept is awesome! However, I have tried numerous times over the past month to scan/search products. I've only scanned ONE item that actually gave me any information. I would use this app all the time...if it worked. Hopefully, the issue will be resolved soon. Otherwise, it's useless.
First, I chose ScanLife above other scanning apps because it's affiliated with mPoints. I used it daily and recommended it any time anyone asked. Since the update on 17 August '15, most of the mPoints available achievements are, in fact, completely unavailable. Second, too many products are coming up ... well, they're not coming up at all, and that's very frustrating. I see that many other people have the same complaints, so I hope these issues will be addressed soon.
Having fun with it so far. Let the wind blow and see if I save money for my family.
