Scan Barcodes on Your iPhone With RedLaser

Last week I wrote about the Edocrab BlackBerry app for scanning barcodes, and now I'm back with good news for iPhone users. RedLaser scans barcodes using the iPhone's camera and uses Google search to compare prices. Unlike the free scanners that have been receiving less-than-stellar reviews in the App Store, RedLaser, which costs $2, has superior software for better product recognition. In the event it doesn't recognize the barcode, you can also manually enter the product's UPC code. Plus, keep a list of scanned products for future reference.

While this is a great app for holiday shopping, you can use it for any product with a barcode (even groceries!) so it's useful all year round.
