Update: ScanLife Barcode Reader For BlackBerry Updates To v3.1.13, Adds Coupons, Nutrition Info And More!

November 19, 2010 | By | 1 Comment

ScanLife can be useful when shopping. Find the cheapest prices online or even better, now you can find coupons, the nutrition of the item, it’s really neat to be able to look up all that information. Especially since the BlackBerry Messenger only can scan other users Barcodes and Group Barcodes.  So check it out…

Here are the added features:

  • Local prices via Milo.com.  Scan the code to see what other local stores currently have the product in-stock and how the price at one compares to another down the block.  Great for local price checks when doing last minute holiday shopping.
  • Digital coupons from Coupons.com.  Scan a code from a product in your home or on the go to get relevant coupons from top manufacturers.  Customers can scan a box of cereal or bottle of shampoo to find and print coupons for savings in the store.   This is a useful new feature considering that over 30 percent of ScanLife traffic comes from everyday products like groceries and personal care.
  • Nutrition information via Food Essentials.  Scan the code to see if there are specific allergens like gluten or peanuts in a specific food, or get other health information like calories and sugars.  Food Essentials has built the database over the last six years by collecting food label data and manually parsing the individual ingredients.

It’s very easy to use. I click Scan and the camera comes up for me to scan. I scanned an Arizona Green Tea drink UPC code. ScanLife beeps and then the screen came up showing the link for nutritional information and coupons. I click the links and can see what the information is. Really nice.

It’s worth a try if you haven’t tried it yet, and if you have, the time to update is now. You can update from the following link:
