Free Samsung Wave Apps Chart (Week 38)

The piano stopped, the saloon door stopped swinging and all eyes focused on the door. There was a stranger in town. A stranger with great hair, a stranger that liked to know things, about everything, and everyone...

barcoo by checkitmobile GmbH
That’s right, knocking the outstanding Bruce Lee off the top spot this week is “barcoo" by checkitmobile GmbH and I have to admit, I love it! The idea (in theory) is simple - "barcoo" lets you scan bar codes (those thin black lines found on everything), then contacts a back-end database somewhere and locates the product in question. On my first try it couldn't find the chewing gum I had sitting on my desk, but it aced the barcode for “Introduction to bada: A Developers Guide” (out now btw on Amazon!) showing me the title, a mini thumbnail and letting me post a review - where I raved about how awesome it is. For consumable products, there is the chance to get a look at the ingredients too, so barcoo could be very useful when monitoring dietary intake while out and about? I am thinking along the lines of allergies/specific dietary requirements?
