DescriptionPrice Buster! is the shopping tool the big stores and online vendors don't want you to know about.
This updated version runs well on newer devices, including ICS & Jellybean phones running up to Android 4.1x (API 16)
While shopping in a conventional retail store - just scan a product's bar code and you'll be able to compare prices three ways....Imagine not only finding and comparing the best online prices, but also get the best prices at local area retail stores with location and information.
With one more tap you can purchase from the online seller, or grab a local retailers phone number and location.
Show salespeople the prices on your screen and possibly get instant price matching!
PriceBuster! can also be used to scan items you regularly purchase at home or in the office to find the most savings for your next purchase.
Price Buster does not favor any one retail channel - it's not funded by any of the retailers it finds for you, so you can be sure the results are not biased.
This is intended for use on a phone with a forward facing camera for capturing (scanning) product upc barcodes. It requires the ZXing scanner app to be installed on the device for the barcode feature to function. If it is not already installed, you will be asked for approval to do a separate installation the first time you use it. Please approve the installation when prompted.
Without the ZXing scanner, you will still be able to enter upc codes (the small numbers just below the barcode) manually, but that's not nearly as fast and easy as the scanner.
If you like the way PriceBuster! saves you money, check out PriceBuster+, which adds major web retail markets and allows you to save your history.
This free version is ad-supported, but it is amazingly fast and lightweight - NOT clogging up or slowing down your device.
2 Things that must be done:
Remember - to get the most from PriceBuster! be sure to allow the ZXing scanner installation when prompted. You'll only need to do this once.
Also, from the main screen, enter your postal code from the settings menu - for the Local search to work properly. You can change this for any location you are shopping in when traveling.
