Sccope Price Comparison App Now FREE!

sccope It always struck me as odd that the popular Sccope price comparison app for BlackBerry was not a free app. Just think of all the price comparison sites out there (PriceGrabber, Shopping.com, etc) and if they would survive if they charged money for the service. Most of them do well on advertising and getting a referral commission on sales.

RIM let us know that Sccope has revised their pricing model and is now a free app in App World. That make quite a bit more sense though it is still limited to the US.

Features of the app include:

  • Identify the best possible deals from hundreds of top retailers with comprehensive product searches and barcode scanning – Enter the product name in the search bar or take a picture of the product’s barcode to compare 10 million different price points
  • Make wish lists, share deals with friends, and receive special offers
  • Track prices and get alerts for out-of-stock items
  • Purchase products directly from your BlackBerry smartphone

They also have some deals and special offers from Staples and GNC if you become a fan of the SCCOPE Facebook page. You can pick up the (now) free Sccope app in App World at this link. Now I wonder if Sccope will be refunding users who already purchased the app for $2.99…

  1. This does make a ton more sense now. People aren’t going to pay for an app like this unless it somehow gets them some straight up Free products for the purchase. Especially in beta. I’d pay for SocialScope in beta and maybe a few other seasoned applications but not one that just came out. Another big issue is the app isn’t Storm or Torch compatible yet. Will be interesting to check it out when my 9650 arrives, but hard for us to push since the Torch and Storm users are left asking why not..

    • Hi Rezn,

      I work for Sccope. Thanks for your comments. Our blackberry app supports BB Torch and we have been getting excellent feedback from Torch users. Unfortunately we dont support Storm at the moment but we will be releasing a Storm compatible version very soon.

      In case you use a torch and you are not able to use our app, please contact us at feedback@sccope.com

      Thanks

  2. Please hurry with that Storm version k?

    • Hi DavidB,

      Glad to know that you are waiting for The Storm compatible version.
      We have had numerous requests from passionate storm users. We are working hard to get a storm compatible version very soon.

      If you like to be a beta-tester for Sccope (Storm version) Please could you email feedback@sccope.com with the Subject “Beta-Tester-Storm” and we shall send you a beta-release as soon as it is out.

      thanks David.
