Scan is an Android application that finds pricing and metadata for anything with a barcode. Here are some key features that make Scan stand out:

  • Automatic barcode recognition using onboard phone camera using ZXing
  • Shows CD, DVD, or book cover along with detailed reviews from Amazon.com
  • Searches over a dozen stores, both online and brick+mortar
    • Highlights brick+mortar stores that are nearby, with option to call the store or get directions
    • Links to online storefronts to buy online from the phone
  • Tracklisting for CDs, along with option to play sample tracks right on phone
  • For books, searches local libraries to see if they have a copy
