Consumr, the barcode-scanning and catalog app formerly known as Consmr, has just received its 2.1 update. Consumr lets you scan barcodes or browse and search through catalogs of various retailers to see product ratings and reviews from other shoppers. The app used to be called Consmr, but its name was changed to the slightly more pronounceable Consumr when it got its 2.0 update last May. Version 2.0 of the app featured a redesigned interface with simplified navigation, new categories, personalized recommendations, leaderboards, and improved scanning. Now, Consumr 2.1 is here, and it brings the following enhancements:
Consumr 2.1 is available now in the App Store for free. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later. Consumr is included as a "notable app" in AppAdvice’s Barcode Scanning Apps For iOS AppGuide. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
- Pricing! View the average price of a product so you know if you're getting a deal or getting ripped off!
- A million more product ratings from retailers. Yes, a million!
- Notifications: Now you can view all your notifications in the app. Just tap the barcode icon at the top.
- RateScore: No matter where the review is from, we display our exclusive ranking so you know to trust the most!
- Gestures: Swipe between products and swipe back to make things easy. Look for "the wiggle"
- Pinterest: Pinning a product to Pinterest is back. Sorry about the wait!
- Lots of user suggested updates including tapping to enlarge photos, viewing your likes and kudos on your profile (thanks Amy!), and faster approvals when you submit a product correction.
