Barcoo – freeware lets you scan barcodes and get lots of lovely product info

Barcoo

Barcoo is a very cool freeware application for smartphones which lets you scan products and view a bunch of useful data. You get price comparisons (offline and online stores), test reports, health info for foods and even eco information to help you maintain that sustainable lifestyle.

It’s easy to use, very fast and the database of information is growing all the time. One of the neat features of the software is the ability for users to add their own reviews, comments and stats, which means it’s going to become very very useful one day once the power of the crowds gets going in earnest. Definitely worth installing on your phone, and works with just about every phone platform around.

  barcoo links products in stores with independent consumer information. Your mobile becomes a barcode scanner and shows you everything you need. For free!…Price comparison, test reports, health, green and sustainability information. Save money, take care of your health and our environment.
