    Is there a barcode scanner made specifically for the UK?
    Which ones are the best?

    It does scan barcodes using the phone's camera. It works very well in the UK with shopsavvy. A great app to show all your iPhone friends.

    The iPhone has RedLaser - RedLaser ? Impossibly accurate barcode scanning - works very well.

    ShopSavvy is pretty good too! AND it is free, whereas RedLaser isnt.

    i tend to find whenever i scan magazine/newpaper barcodes, it rarely comes up with what it's supposed to be

    eg - i scanned the march edition of Linux Format and it informed me i'd scanned ..

    Lace Long Sleeves Open Crotch Bodystocking!

    going further in, it brings up various music tracks.


    Most actual products (eg coffee / weetabix etc) do come up correctly

    It mainly works on entertainment goods like CDs/Books/Games etc.
    Food is a rarity.

    Just an observation, but I refuse to turn into an anorak, sifting through boxes of Weetabix in my local ASDA in the hope that it turns up a cheaper deal at Tesco.

    Now, expensive toys and gadgets - that's a different matter entirely. Unfortunately, I was looking for a replacement car recently. Imagine my chagrin when I discovered they did not have barcodes...eventually I found one but it turned out to be a heavy duty cadmium battery - best price

    I found Shopsavvy really useful the other day in Costco - it recognised all the items (mainly consumer electronics and household) and resulted in me making one purchase only out of everything I scanned. Costco as any member knows is not always as cheap as you are lead to believe, so being able to price compare is very useful here.
