ShopSavvy Dangles iPad 2, Kindle Fire To Users

Dallas-based ShopSavvy is looking to spur usage of its barcode scanning apps this holiday season, with a new promotion where users get a chance to win either an iPad 2 or Kindle Fire, the firm announced Friday. ShopSavvy said it will be selecting one winner a week until December 25th, selected randomly from users who scan products using its product. ShopSavvy also said it will award both an iPad 2 and Kindle Fire to the users with the most scans using its mobile barcode software between now and Christmas. ShopSavvy develops iPhone and Android apps for price comparing items, based on a scan of their barcode; the firm is headed by Alexander Muse.
