I just found a new app for my Droid that I LOVE. It’s called RedLaser. It’s a shopping app that let’s you scan a bar code and it tells you who sells it online and locally near you. It also let’s you know where the best deal is so you don’t overpay. Very neat right? Best part the app is free! If you find a deal online or at a local store RedLaser allows you to buy it using paypal so it’s waiting for you when you get there!
Here are some of my favorite features of RedLaser:
- Scan and search for products using the bar code scanner.
- Compare prices online and at local retailers, so you’ll know you’re getting the best deal.
- Find out which stores stock what you’re looking for by searching
for a product locally. No need to drive around town searching for what you need!
- Browse product reviews and ratings.
- Buy directly from your phone using PayPal mobile express checkout and you can pick up your item in a nearby store.
- Create shopping lists (or wish lists!) and easily share them with friends and family via email, SMS, Twitter and Facebook.
- Scan a food item to get allergen and ingredient information.
That’s alot of things you can do with one little app. Now I will admit I had trouble using it in some stores like Lowes Hardware. I don’t know if it was my phone, if the store was anti-wifi or just something I was doing but it wouldn’t connect. That little blimp didn’t keep me from loving this app though. As some of you know I am trying to eat healthier and this app lets me do that. Check this out. When you scan a bar code of product it gives you a grade on how healthy it is. The calorie count and what might be wrong with it. For example I scanned a Campbell’s Condensed Soup and it got a B. Did you know that it has 3 tsp of sugar per serving! Who would have thought that. It also has over 20% of your daily allowance of salt! That’s alot. I mean I knew it was salty but wow. No wonder my ankles swell when I eat it. This app will make making healthier choices easier.
My favorite part of this app is the allergen info. My son has peanut allergies. I can now scan this bar code and it let’s me know all of the allergy info. How neat is that? Do wondering and scanning and worrying that I might mess up. Simply scan and it lets me know. Sweet!
Here’s a fun little youtube of a woman during a shopping crisis. It’s cute and informative. I would definitely download this free app. It’s compatible with Androids, iphones and Windows phone.
