Get The Best Deal: Scan IT App

Ever purchased something from the mall only to know that the same thing is available for much cheaper online?

You can look at popular items from different countries at SCAN IT! International

How To Use Scan IT ?
1. Install it to your phone, take it to malls or any local shops while going for shopping. When you see any branded items, simply scan the barcode of those branded items using Scan IT! Scan IT searches online and brings you the best price/offer for the product.
2. When you run out of any products like toilet soap, shampoo, hair oil, cooking oil, paste etc, simply take out your phone, scan the barcode present on those empty product boxes and order the items instantly.

Why use Scan IT ?
Usually local show rooms or malls charge higher price for the products, so before making any purchase decisions it is wise to check the cost of the products online. This way, there are more chances of saving your hard earned money, which you can invest in something more productive.

Usually books will be charged at MRP rates(or maybe they give you 10% discount) in local stores. But in most of the cases books will be available for lot cheaper than at local store. What’s wrong in checking before buying, right?

Branded cloths cost more in malls and showrooms as they levy additional charges so that they can pay for AC charges, showroom rent charges, employee charges etc. All those add up to the percentage of cost you pay for the cloth.

Scan IT works on all barcodes?
No. Scan IT works on most barcodes. But not on barcodes printed by local shops – as they do not allow their product information online, there is no chance for the application to fetch such data. And there are so many fake barcodes available on products, on which Scan IT doesn’t work.

Barcodes printed directly on the product(example, barcode present on backside of the books) or the rate tags attached on branded cloths etc works best.

1. Automatically detects most barcode types. Faster detection, less use of phone memory.
2. History of all the successfully scanned products – for later use.

My Views On Nexus 5


It’s an awesome device. But you may think, these days smartphones are shipping with 32 MP camera’s and Nexus 5 is stuck with 8 MP!, well clarity of pictures don’t just depend on Mega Pixel rates, so lets wait with the new additional camera features Nexus 5 is shipping with. I’m sure, they’ve taken much care about video recording and photo capturing, as it has been highly emphasized in promo videos. The new HDR+ fixes all your shaky captures!

It also comes with cool sensors. We could play around and create wonderful applications for devices running KitKat.

2GB RAM in a smart phone is awesome. Not long ago we had only 256 MB of RAM in our desktop computers šŸ˜› – good old days. So we could expect this smart phone to be a faster device.
Also not to forget: CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragonā„¢ 800, 2.26GHz and GPU: Adreno 330, 450MHz

..talking about the speed – According to Sundar Pichai, head of Android, apps have been fine-tuned to use less computing power, with new android KitKat. Also, Google wants KitKat to be compatible with even the low end(hardware wise) android devices. Application developers could build application that would run based on the memory the device has. This way, Google is aiming to bring android KitKat to all the android enabled devices. But providing upgrade to these devices are left to device manufacturers. This way, Google wants to bring uniform user experience for all android device users.

Nexus Devices
If you follow our blog, you might already know that, I love android devices. Recently I bought Nexus 7 (first generation tablet) and I’m still loving it. It’s really an amazing device.

As always, one of the biggest advantage of Nexus devices is that it gets the new versions of android( updates ) sooner than any other devices. That being said, Nexus 4, Nexus 7(both 2012 and 2013 models), and Nexus 10 will be getting KitKat i.e., android 4.4 in coming weeks.
