Popular Barcode Scanning App Consmr Changes Name To Consumr With 2.0 Update
Consmr, the popular barcode scanner and product guide app, has just been updated to version 2.0. Consmr 2.0 introduces a number of improvements as well as, most notably, a new name. As it turns out, the old name Consmr is no more. In its stead is the new name Consumr. Wait, what? Yup, Consmr is now Consumr. Apparently, Consumr takes "u" into consideration as it also adds new categories that "you" asked for. These include Toys, Electronics, Baby Gear, Movies, and Pets. And you can view these new categories and more with the app's new design, which boasts simplified navigation. So, new (sort of) name, new categories, new design. What else do we have in Consumr?

Consumr's personalized recommendations are based on your product rating. So, the more ratings you submit, the smarter your personalized recommendations get. As for Consumr's leaderboards, they feature the top users by total points, review count, great review count, rating count, first review count, and kudos received count. Consumr also comes with improved barcode scanning and other miscellaneous improvements. Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, Consumr is available in the App Store for free. Consumr, under its old name, is listed as a notable app in AppAdvice's Barcode Scanning Apps For iOS AppGuide. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
