    This program worked great the first week I had it, but now it will never scan barcodes. It will scan maybe 1 out of every 10 barcodes. Is this normal? It's not scanning them and then telling me the product isn't found, it just won't scan them and sits on "Scanning barcodes, please wait." And I see tjhe little green dots running up and down the bars. I'm holding my hand as still as possible, focusing on the barcodes, and even try moving the camera in and out. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled it on my Droid X. What could be the problem?

    good to see such great support and attention from the Dev.


    Good job.

    I am going to go install shopsavvy just because of your post.

    Awesome, let us know what you think. ShopSavvy 4.0 - the first major update to ShopSavvy on Android is coming before the holiday shopping season. We are pretty excited, hopefully you will like it too.

    I've been using this for quite awhile now and it works great. Also works nicely with QR codes. Thanks for the app!

    I've been trying to use shopsavvy and it keeps giving me "local" stores in the same place in Ireland. I live in England. I have also set the default postcode and that does not seem to have any effect when I'm inside and hence have no GPS signal. Seems to just completely ignore that postcode and go to a random Irish town. I have not properly tried it when I'm out and about using the GPS for location but surely this default postcode should make it work indoors. It surely should work to override you current location in case someone wants to search in a different location to where they are at the time. Is this something that can be fixed?
