I can’t even tell you how many list making and organizational apps I have downloaded and deleted a few months later because they just were not what I was looking for. I love having a smart phone and sometimes forget just all that it can do. If you have an iPhone, Android or Windows phone I would highly encourage you to download the FREE RedLaser app. You will not find me singing the praises of many organizational apps for the simple reason that I think many of them have areas that are missing. RedLaser thought of just about everything plus some!
Create Shopping Lists + Purchase
Gone are the days of writing down your grocery lists. All I have to do is go around my house and find the things we are running out of and scan the bar code on the back. Instantly the item is pulled up and I can add it to my list. If you happen upon an item with no bar code you can enter it manually or choose from your past history. This list can then be shared via email, Facebook, Twitter or SMS. So, if I forget something I can always text the list over to my husband to grab on his way home from work.
Need something fast? You can actually purchase what you need from the RedLaser app, pay via paypal and then pick it up in the store or have it shipped to your home by shopping online. Not to mention, RedLaser gives you a list of all of the prices so you can make the best decision.
Price & Product Comparison Like No Other
Yes, once you scan the item a list of where to find the product as well as the prices immediately jumps up. I especially appreciate that I can choose “Local” to see what the prices are near me. Search results are categorized a few different ways: Online Search Results, Google Search Results and theFind Search results. I like that it pulls from several sources so that I am sure to get the best deal currently out there. You can also read reviews of the item and view the ingredients, nutritional information and details about the product. Not sure the product you scanned is for you? That’s ok, RedLaser offers you a list of suggestions!
Browse Deals by Store
If you are just browsing and would like to see what deals are happening where, RedLaser offers a list of tons of stores for you to choose from. Let’s say I am looking to purchase a new camera from BestBuy. I can search the deals to see if there are any specials or coupon codes I can use in order to save on my purchase. If you are buying online you can click to copy the coupon code straight from your phone in order to use it on your purchase.
No More Loyalty Cards on Your Keychain
Out of all of the fantastic features RedLaser offers, this one is by far my favorite! I can’t tell you how many times I look like an idiot fumbling around with my keys trying to find the right loyalty card for the store. It is pretty ridiculous and I can’t believe I didn’t think of trying to store them on my phone sooner! Simply find the store, scan the bar code on your loyalty card and then store them somewhere other than your wallet or keys! Simply show the checkout clerk your smart phone and you are done. What’s even better is that RedLaser will give you a green price tag pop up beside any of your loyalty cards that currently have deals. This is such a time saver for me because those cards are generally where I shop the most.
QR Code Creator
Want to share websites or information with friends quick and easy? Just enter the website and/or info and RedLaser will create a QR Code for them to scan with their smart phones in just seconds. These are really starting to gain traction all over the place. I have even been given a few business cards with this option and it is so handy.
