KPRC Local 2 Director Chad Simpson found a really cool new application for the iPhone (The T-Mobile “My Touch 3G” also apparently can use it) that lets you compare prices for any product with a UPC bar code. You can watch him demonstrate it in the video above. (Tilt yout head slightly to the left and you won’t even notice it’s sideways :))
All you do is hold the phone up to the bar code of any product.. and it acts like a scanner. Then your phone searches online for every internet retailer that sells that product. You can find out the lowest price before you throw it in your cart at a brick & mortar store.
The app is called “Red Laser.” It costs $1.99.
I, myself… am too cheap to splurge for the iPhone!
