BostInnovation writes about Scandit – and compares it favorably to Shopsavvy

Here is what Cheryl Morris from BostInnovation said about Scandit:

“Technology developers Mirasense recently released shopping app Scandit, a next-generation barcode scanning app for the iPhone. While this free app includes price comparisons, reviews, and the ability to share items over social networks and email, the actual barcode scanning technology is what sets Scandit apart. …… The BostInnovation team tested the scanner through plastic wrapping, on curved bottles and even with scratched barcodes, and all were read successfully. Popular gadget blog Ubergizmo rated Scandit as better than scanning app competitor RedLaser, which eBay acquired this summer. BostInnovation also tested Scandit against competitor ShopSavvy with its 6 million users, which did not recognize one of the item’s barcodes we tested. Overall, Scandit is much faster at recognizing items, and what’s more, doesn’t require you to press any “scan” button while simultaneously trying to hold your phone steady.”
