Scan, search, buy!
Cyclops is a handheld barcode scanner for the iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5. When you are on the go, you can scan barcodes on items you see and Cyclops will read them, and search for product and pricing information online from Amazon right away for you.
Once your item is scanned, it's saved for you, and you can conveniently send an email with the item information, or view it online from Safari.
PLEASE NOTE: video barcode scanning for Cyclops requires the camera on the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, or 5 in order to work, older iPhone versions and devices without cameras can use the included keypad to enter the barcode manually.
Simply open up Cyclops and click the Scan button. Take a picture of the barcode in portrait mode, and Cyclops does the rest, identifying the item you are looking at and providing up to the minute product and pricing information from Amazon.

Does read bar codes
But does little else waste of time and energy
Cyclops app does not work.
I downloaded this app to scan barcodes from books and check prices on Amazon. The app will scan the barcode, but it does not pull up a book title, pricing guide, or any other information from Amazon. I am left with a useless list of numbers. I tried to email Cyclops customer support, but the email address is invalid. Do NOT waste your money on this app! (One star rating because the review would not accept zero stars.)
I want my dollar back
Takes forever to finally read a bar code. When it does it doesn't return any information. Supposedly I was going to be able to click through to see the item on Amazon. I need this feature. I need to be able to get the pure url for the page on Amazon. I'd pay $100 for an app that does what yours claims it can do. Fix your app and you're sitting on a goldmine of a niche market.
