iPhone Red Laser Barcode Scanner


            With all of the new iPhone applications out there today, one of the newest and most interesting applications, the Red Laser application comes out on top. Previously there have been a few attempts at making the iPhone a barcode scanner, none have been as successful as the Red Laser application. What separates the Red Laser application from the rest is its ability to act just like those red scanners you see at the grocery store. The Red Laser works by using the iPhones already existing high-quality camera system, and then using that camera to read the labels, then the Red Laser inventory software can help you keep track of your assets, whether its from the showfloor, warehouse or even in your car, the iPhone Red Laser inventory tracking system is perfect.iphone barcode scanner
The Red Laser was created by Occipital, the same minds behind the ClearCam, the same application which is responsible for enhancing your iPhone’s camera. The camera on the iPhone with the help of the Red Laser application can perform a multitude of tasks never before thought possible. Some of these new possibilities are: The ability to scan a movie at the movie store, and have your TiVo instantly starting recording it at home. You could scan a book at a store, and read blogs & reviews on the book before you buy it. While at the grocery store, you could scan items of food and compare similar products and prices as well.
         


           Because the iPhone is on a 3G network and almost always will have internet, this application is an attractive prospect for the business on the move. The ability to track, order and sell products from the palm of your hand is finally here. Never again will you need to buy another barcode scanner, infact if you own the iPhone this Red Laser application only costs $1.99.


           To use the Red Laser application, all one has to do is simply hold the camera 10-12 inches away from the UPC/EAN barcode label, and press the take picture button. With the flexibility to control your business from your iPhone, you and all of your employees can now stay constantly connected with each other, as well as keeping a constant eye on inventory without even going to the warehouse.The iPhone with Red Laser allows a new door to be opened for business, with the ability to connect every employee instantly to inventories, orders, returns and many other aspects that would otherwise require more technology and more employees. With secure wireless internet and the ability to connect to any (authorized) local network. With less down time, less equipment, the iPhone & Red Laser application can allow for higher productivity and less down-time for any business.

    What software do i need for the iPhone and my pc to do inventory tracking with the iPhone red beam scanner?

    I also would like to know how to use this product to do our monthly inventory. This would save us from looking up hundreds of product codes on print outs and then counting and marking it down. With this we could potentially cut down on our overtime during inventory..Thanks.

    I have an (3G) i-phone and have downloaded this app. Why cannot I not get any local pricing? All I am getting is internet pricing. Very disappointed. Hoping I’m just doing something wrong. Thank you.

    Mobile Computers are handheld devices that integrate a Barcode Scanners (or barcode imager) with a computer to provide an integrated barcode scanning device.

    If you search for a real good Inventory Scanner and Management app on the iPhone, have a look at: ‘Inventory Scanner’.

    It scans:
    * UPC-A
    * UPC-E
    * EAN 8
    * EAN 13
    * ISBN 10
    * ISBN 13
    * 2/5 Interleaved (i25)
    * Code 39
    * Code 128
    * PDF 417
    * QR Code
    * Tracking numbers from UPS and FedEx.

    I want to be able to scan a product or book and bring back the description and other detail(via the web) and have it stored in a database. Will you application do that?

    After researching and reading reviews, I had found that the diversity in the reviews caused more uncertainty than before. So since I had a iphone 4g 32gb, I figured that I would download more than one barcode reader. I downloaded Scandit, ShopSavvy, RedLaser, and Consumer Reports barcode reader. All of these applications had worked. I found that Scandit performed better on picking up the scan especially on rounded surfaces. Also Scandit and ShopSavvy provided much more information and lower prices than RedLaser. I’m not counting consumer reports because that is more on product description, testing, and ratings and not really for getting the best bang for the buck even though they do provide places to purchase the item. In my opinion, and again just in my opinion, the best one is Scandit, ShopSavvy comes in second, and Redlaser last. All these applications were free with the iphone 4g. The CR barcode is $9.99 for the year.

    Hello there! This post could not be written any better! Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He constantly kept talking about this. I most certainly will forward this information to him.
    Fairly certain he’ll have a great read. I appreciate you for sharing!
