--Stewart Meagher, TheInquirer.net

"Pic2shop is amazing. I saved $70 last week scanning items and finding them at a lower price at a different merchant. The store manager dropped the price to the competitors in front of me after I scanned products and showed him."

Original Comments: This app is most accessible.

The barcode recognition is automatic and has been fairly quick, accurate and easy to use in my testing.

However, the search results page is a little confusing. It appears to be presented in a style similar to a web apge, and it can be a little confusing to understand. There are certainly a few links and buttons on this page that I still don't know what they do.

Certain areas of the app can also become quite slow to respond when using VoiceOver.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

It's a free app, so I would certainly encourage people to at least try it.
