Google Glass is still kind of a niche product. It is available to everyone (since it reached open beta status) in U.S. and U.K. for a steep price of $1500. Despite that, number of Glassware (Google Glass apps) is increasing, slowly but surely. Glass is becoming more and more useful thanks to developers who are pushing the platform forward by releasing all sorts of apps and of course Google itself who’s constantly updating Glassware.
We recently wrote about an app called “Shop X” which makes grocery shopping extremely easy. This time around we have something new for you, “RedLaser” is a Glassware which will make your shopping experience much easier using Glass. You might have heard of this app already considering it’s available on all three major mobile platforms, Android, iPhone and Windows Phone and it is owned by eBay (they bought it after the app reached 2 million downloads worldwide). RedLaser is now available on Google Glass as well and it could be a really useful piece of software. This app has a lot of options, it’s a barcode scanner, shopping assistant, QR code reader and it also lets you search for all sorts of deals, stores and even compare prices and see reviews. After you install this app you’ll get two more commands you can use when you say that magic “OK Google” phrase. The commands in question are “Find Product” and “Scan Product”. Both of these are kind of self-explanatory, the first one lets you say the name of a product and the app will try to find it. The second one on the other hand is more straightforward, you just have to line up the viewfinder with the barcode of a certain product and you’ll get all the necessary information. RedLaser really offers a lot of information once you find the app you’re looking for, whether you want to know the prices in certain stores, you just want to know where to buy the item or something else, this app will help you out.
Not many people own Google Glass at this point, but if you do then we definitely recommend you give this app a spin. You can download it HERE.
