Shopping Simulation for iPad

Just in time for our next unit on working, there is a new app out that simulates a real grocery store shopping trip. Storest app simulates the shopping experience, complete with choosing items, paying out the cash register, and the best part? Print out the grocery store items, then use the the iPad’s built-in camera as a cash register’s bar-code scanner. Just like the real machines. Well worth the $2.99 price.
