ShopSavvy Sees 2.15M Downloads In November

Dallas-based Big In Japan reports today that November was the biggest month for downloads for the firm's barcode scanning app, ShopSavvy, since its release in November of 2008. According to the firm, the app was downloaded 2.15 million times, including 1.4 million times on iPhone and 750,000 times on Android phones. Big In Japan's ShopSavvy app allows users to scan a product barcode, and receive competitive pricing from online stores. Big In Japan attributed the surge in downloads to a new release, as well as widespread coverage of the software tool by television stations during Black Friday week.
