I recently downloaded the RedLaser Barcode & QR Scanner App on my Smartphone. This cool app allows you to scan a product using the bar code scanner and it will compare prices for that item online and at local retailers.
I tested it out by scanning a Remington Textured Hair Dryer. I simply positioned my phone over the UPC symbol so the code was within the box, and it automatically scanned and gave me results without having to click a button! It even included an image of the product so I knew it was the right one. So I then knew that the best price for that certain hair dryer was my local Target store! I think this tool will come in handy when buying gifts from wedding and baby registries as I will be able to give people the exact items from their list but probably pay less than they think I did!
To see RedLaser in action, check out this quick video that highlights some other cool features as well:
More awesome features include the ability to create shopping lists to share them with friends and family via email, SMS, Twitter and/or Facebook. Or you can even scan a food item to get the allergen and ingredient information for that food.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that the RedLaser is FREE and available for download for iPhone, Android and Windows phones. 20 million others already use it, so what are you waiting for? Download RedLaser now!
