If you own iPhone 3GS and love shopping then Barcode Reader will prove to be a great utility and it might just help you get some great deals on products.
Barcode Reader is the latest app from SHAPE Services which allows you to compare prices, find details about the product you are searching by simply taking a photo of any printed barcode. The app will also show you the lowest possible prices from various online retailers.
The app supports UPC, EAN-13 and EAN-8 barcodes and features in-built web browser which enables you to search more information about the product you are interested in.
Barcode Reader is a free app (iTunes Store) and the developers claim that the app is the most accurate free barcode scanner with Ebay, Amazon and Google product search.
