    I have read one review saying that due to poor quality of the back camera, the bar code scan software can't read the number? Is that true with what you experienced? Please advise. Thanks.

    The Bakodo app (free) is giving me trouble. It hasn't been able to scan anything I've put it front of it. Manual search works great though!

    EDIT: RedLaser app works

    It works perfectly fine on the Target app, and it's not THAT poor quality camera.

    If it doesn't work, the app may need to be updated to support 4.0

    Red laser app (free) works every time - brilliant. Even works in pretty low light. Saves lots of money when buying books.

    If I recall its a program where you scan (take a picture) a barcode, normally looking like this

    and you can price compare. Best Buy has recently updated their price tags with a new look as well as having this barcode on it.

    Oh ok. So like, you can go to a store and take a picture of the Bar Code and on the app, it says the price? O.O
