Has anyone used the Shop Savvy app. Been trying it out and it rarely works in finding anything. It will just sit there after it scans the bar code. Looks like it is trying to pull up prices but doesnt. Out of the 12 things I have scanned it worked with 2. Seems like a handy app, but is it more based for the US

I sometimes use Checkout 51, I think that is more Canada based :)

Ya alot of the windows phone stuff is US based with no alternative. Android is also alot of US based stuff but there's usually an alternative. Of all I'm sure BlackBerry is probably the most Canadian focus since Blackberry is a Canadian based company.

Thanks. Would of been a nice feature. I tested it more, tried DVD and it pulled up info for them no problem, with prices all from online stores. So it works, just not in Canada really

Highly recommend Checkout 51. I also have gotten 2 checks thus far.
If you use it during sales and with a coupon you can make money.

And yes Shop Savvy is available in Canada, but it is extremely limited with price info

RedLaser has a larger database, as it's been around longer, but still mostly US-based.

Then again, if you know exactly what you want, what's wrong with a little cross-border online shopping ;-)
