SnipSnap for Android and iOS got some attention on Technically Philly yesterday, in celebration of Android’s release and iOS hitting 550K users. SnipSnap CEO Ted Mann also explained a little more about bar code beaming technology, and how mobile couponing could become much more high-tech for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
The Android version is similar to the iOS version, said Mann except that the Android app also has the ability to “beam” barcodes. That means that your phone’s infrared sensor transmits the coupon barcode to laser-based scanners that can’t read barcodes off a phone, Mann said. That functionality is only available for Samsung Galaxy S4.

From Coupon Graveyard to insta-mobile savings!
It’s such an exciting time here at SnipSnap! We’re thrilled about the release of SnipSnap for Android in Google Play.
We’re getting lots of love from our new Android users and the press too. TechCrunch’s Chris Velazco published a great write up about SnipSnap for Android, highlighting how well its form and function compete with the iPhone version of the app, and all the cool features Android users have to look forward to, like beamable bar codes.
Cameron Summerson from Android Police is a fan of SnipSnap for Android, too:
If you’re an aspiring coupon genius or an old buck-saving pro who makes a living out of nickel-and-diming the local Piggly Wiggly, SnipSnap is probably a great tool to add to your thrift-inspiring arsenal. Best of all, it’s totally free. Probably because charging money for a couponing app doesn’t make a lot of sense in the first place.
