Bargain Hunters rejoice! - Sccope aims to save you pennies!

sccope

I hate spending money. If I can save $.20 on a can of mushrooms, I'll do it, and when it comes to big purchases I will scour flyers and websites looking for the best possible deal I can find. Only one problem, I can't exactly lug my laptop around with me while I'm actually in the store, so I'm forced to go with the information I've already gleaned from home. Sccope is an app with the mission to help you save those hard earned dollars, giving you the ability to compare prices right there in the store on your trusty device. Three options are available to you when you want to check an item, you can scan a barcode, enter a product number, or browse for it by category. Really want that particular TV, but the price comparisons aren't enough to get you to buy right now? Add it to your wishlist and get notified when the price drops so you can zip down and grab it. The service even includes live coupons from some of the larger retailers, saving you the time of searching for them. At a price point of $2,99, it's pretty reasonable, considering it could pay for itself by finding one bargain. Available in App World for OS 4.5 and up, but you'll need to be running 5.0 if you want to use barcode scanning. The Storm series is also not supported at this time.

Nice! I think I'm going to get it because my local supermarket just got free Wi-Fi!

*/Oh, and I'm the first to comment!*

OH COME ON!!

"I can't exactly lug my laptop around with me while I'm actually in the store, so I'm forced to go with the information I've already gleaned from home."

Please, worst reason to buy this app! I don't go "shopping" without a plan, and have already researched any big ticket item from online sources before I even go out.

You know how I'll save money, by not buying this app. Its a good concept, but if the dev. was interested in saving us money, run a CB special with $2 off with a code for christ sakes. Otherwise, enjoy the lack of buyers

A double roll of the eyes!!! The Storm gets no respect! And before some of you jump at my comments, it is not because of SurePress! It's RIM. OS 4.7 was pathetic on the Storm. OS 5.0 is better but still needs work.

I'm sure this is why RIM was pushing OS 6.0 on the Storm 2 as a refresh. The device itself was solid and well built, but the OS 5.0 just wasn't good enough.

DO NOT KILL OR RUIN THE STORM NAME! It's a fantastic name for a leading edge device, but RIM has to develop such a device. I hope the Storm 3 rocks as I expect the PlayBook to when it is released no later than March 1st!!!

I'm really starting to hate all the member posted aDds in the blog comments. Can't something be done about it?

I have been asking the same question for a long time but being ignored like I was invisible.

So it supports the Torch but not the Storm2? O_o We really are the red-headed stepchild of the BlackBerry universe, aren't we? Sadly, I've come to expect new/cool apps won't work.

Fucking stupidest app i've ever heard of. Well almost.
If you can't manage money this app isn't going to magically give you that ability

used this app to scan many different items- failed pretty much for this app's intended purpose.

3 different trainers that both JD and Footlocker are selling (Nike one's) - failed to recognise the barcodes and yes, I was placing it in the lines correctly with no glare on the barcode and awesome lighting - even took it outside to test - all failed to recognise them. entering the barcodes manually didn't work. then doing a search for the product didn't even pull up the right trainers in question on any occasion. if I did a simple google search using the same terms, I found the trainers right away.

it also displays incorrect information - e.g. I did a search for dead in the family (it's a true blood book) gave me a price of £5.xx - now beforehand I already knew Amazon were selling it for £7.50 or w/e it is (basically half of the RRP) - yet this claimed Amazon were selling it for £5.49 which is a joke cos I had already ordered my book prior to using this app

improve this app massively as it has huge potential, but right now is a major fail on loads of items I tested.

Can someone name 1 barcode that this app can scan and find?I scaned 20 items in my house and none of them were found.
what am I missing here? isnt the point to scan any barcode and find info on it?
