We recognize that as more and more phones are released ShopSavvy (and any app that scans a barcode) will need to be tweaked to accommodate different frame rates and focal lengths. We have decided to port our iPhone scanning library (i.e. allowing for blurry barcode scanning) to Android. Once we update ShopSavvy to include 'meatloaf' (this is the name of our scanning software) it should work on ANY Android phone that has a camera (knock on wood).
Anyway, enjoy ShopSavvy on your Droid - I am...
I am not a ShopSavvy user so why the comment then?
Well I like to pass on good stories. I was in a toy store this weekend and a man was jumping around like Will Ferrell in Elf, giddy with excitement.
The first thing I noticed after I looked past his tights (jk) was his android phone. Cool I thought. Then I realized he was using a scanning app to scan prices and commenting to his wife about each item he was scanning.
She finally said to him, "that's a cool app but we really don't need all these great buys."
He replied, "I know, but ShopSavvy is the coolest app in the world, I love it. I just love it."
I had no idea you hung out on AF and hope your team is inspired by this funny but true story. Elf 2, product placement opportunity anyone? Keep up the great work!
