    When I go to iTunes App Store there are so many (free) bar code scanning apps it is difficult to evaluate which is best.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks...

    Is Redlaser still free? If not, do you all have barcode scanner? I've used both and they're both good.

    I prefer ShopSavvy. I've used RedLaser as well and it's a decent one too.

    What do you want it to do, besides scan barcodes obviously?

    Give best prices both locally (stores) and online.

    I tend to find Google search a rather nippy, and free, alternative... RedLaser is fine for what it does, but as single piece of software, it's more show than go.

    I've used a few but tend to fall back onto RedLaser.

    Red laser is a great choice! It has saved me some money on a few different occasions, lol.
