Most of us use either alfa diag or fiat multiscan but obviously they are pc based and no use to you. I'm sure someone will be using something

there are tons about, I use a cheap £15-20 u380 on my stilo jtdm 16v for the reason I want something I can leave in the car to read and reset codes without driving for miles in limp mode for something simple.
ive seen some newer ones can give live data readouts of various feeds£30-50(for the extra £ id have one of these now but wernt about at the time I ordered mine)
likes of argos started stocking one or 2 but I think were £60-100
im not sure ay do airbags or abs?
pays your money and takes your choice
just remembered these guys are about and this looks like closest to pc software on handheld
also not sure if cheaper copies of this are about from hongcong or china

For engine codes: £15 generic code readers will do
If you want a handheld that will do airbag and abs, Autel AL619
Thats the best for price imo. but if you will be using it on Alfas and see yourself with an alfa for a few more years, it would be cheaper to get the PC scanners as mentioned (Multiecuscan)
