RedLaser Realtime Barcode Scanner Beta Released

RedLaser Realtime Barcode Scanner Beta Released

Posted July 20, 2009 at 7:05pm by iClarified
RedLaser, a realtime barcode scanner from Occipital has been released in beta on Cydia.

According to a post by Occipital via BigBoss, "RedLaser is the most advanced realtime barcode scanner for common barcodes (UPC/EAN) that works across all iPhones with no autofocus camera necessary.

RedLaser scans in realtime straight from the camera feed - no photo necessary, and returns prices from Google product search and links to Amazon. We’ve also released an SDK that developers can use to enable barcode scanning in their own applications."

RedLaser Beta Features:
Scan in realtime for UPC/EAN barcodes
Works for iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS
Get prices in USD, GBP, EUR
Choose country for link to Amazon
SECRET FEATURE: Search any website!

"We released RedLaser 2.0 on the App Store for $1.99 a few weeks ago, but that version is now out of date. Rather than sit around waiting for approval, we decided to make RedLaser Beta available on Cydia until the latest version is approved. We made it free to thank the Jailbreak community for the great experience we had when we launched ClearCam."

The version currently available on Cydia for free is almost 3 revisions more advanced than the one currently available on the App Store. You can download it from the BigBoss repository. You can find the older App Store version here.

When would this come handy? Why would you want to go scan everything when you buy stuff? I don't understand the purpose. And does this work outside the US?
