“I've loved RedLaser since it cost $1.99; it's still one of my favorite free apps and one of the few that actually saves me money. Scan the bar code of almost anything with your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch; RedLaser searches the Web for the item's price at thousands of online retailers as well as nearby brick-and-mortar stores. If you don't have RedLaser, what are you waiting for?”

USED to love it...
I had used this app for years and never had a problem. Recently it is worthless! It loads terribly slow and once it finally scans item it either says it can't find item or shows upc & company name but no further details... It rarely brings up lists anymore of competitors who have item and their prices but on rare occasion it actually pulls that information up it has not been the correct price! I'm so frustrated and this is just a waste of my time and battery life since it has been taking so long to work when I'm out shopping... I miss my old reliable app that just worked accurately and quickly! I really don't recommend anyone getting this app unless they decide 2figure out these major glitches and hopefully by that point they wouldn't have lost all of their old loyal patrons :(
Used to be good
I've had this app for a long time. Originally, I downloaded it to scan barcodes (!) It would let me scan the barcode and then do things with the data. I used it occasionally for inventorying stuff. Now the current version is a "shopping" app. I don't want you to search for the barcode I just scanned and show me prices and where to buy it. The lists I'm making aren't shopping lists, they're just lists of things.
That being said, it recognizes and scans barcodes really well. It's just what it does with them after that's not so helpful. Off to find an app that just scans the barcodes like the old versions of RedLaser.
The love affair is over!!
.An A+ for concept and a F for execution. I used to use this app every day. And slowly with each iOS upgrade the results given after a scan were less and less reliable and in most case not even accurate. Then came the annoying pop ups to rate this app every time I opened it. So be careful what you ask for Red Laser. As a final thought, I just scanned a bag of cough drops with a UPC result that reads....a product of (brand name), no other information like price, locations available or information on product. With a market flooded w QR readers wait on this one till the bugs are fixed.
