We’ve been getting a lot of requests that look like this:
I love RedLaser, but can you please add my favorite site X to your search results?
Can you send the barcode I scanned to site X for logging?
We thought this might happen, so we embedded a feature in RedLaser 2.2 that lets you search any website by barcode. But until now, we haven’t announced the feature.
Try building an app by following the instructions and let us know what you think. We’d also love some suggestions for other sites to add to our “popular” custom apps list.
We’re excited to see what RedLaser Custom Apps get built and used!
By the way if you like RedLaser, we also launched two other iPhone application last week -FoodScanner (partnership with DailyBurn), and Snapture (partnership with SnaptureLabs). All three of these apps are doing well – they’re all in the top 100 paid apps on the App Store and RedLaser is at #2!
******* EDIT *************
We just added the option to convert scanned barcodes to UPC if the site you are searching only supports UPC format. On the RedLaser Custom Apps page, when building an app, simply check the “Convert to UPC” box, and the app you create will convert to UPC before searching.
