Project: Find It Cheaper Baby

Case Study
Demo Video

The Challenge wanted an easy to use and intuitive iPhone app to compliment thier online site, something that would allow users to easily find and compare products without the need to enter product names or models.


The Solution


Archimedes Services has developed an iPhone app that enables users to quickly capture product info by scanning UAC/EAN barcodes and identifying the products using various bar code databases. The application then executes searches against the site backend through web services, and then presents price comparison information in the app. The app uses the built in camera hardware to scan bar codes, and has a high tolerance for image abberations (for example, low light conditions). The scanning process is user friendly, and provides assistive camera overlays to ensure the user is holding the device correctly during the scan. The scanning engine works across a range of iPhone devices without any issues.


The Result


Find it Cheaper Baby is an easy to use iPhone app that leverages mobile hardware to enable shoppers to find reviews, ratings and lowest prices for products on the web. The app has helped increase traffic to the site and also allowed KidCrawl to expand their customer reach.
