RedLaser
RedLaser is an application that lets you easily scan a product's barcode in real time using the iPhone's on-board camera. Once the barcode is recognized (there is also a manual input for un-scannable products) the application trawls through information on Google Product Search and Amazon's comprehensive product databases. RedLaser uses this online information to return a list of online prices so shoppers can be sure of getting the best deal. The application automatically localizes the information and provides prices in USD, EUR and GBP depending on the user's shopping preferences.

ShopSavvy

The ShopSavvy application scans barcodes on the go with the help of your iPhone's camera. It then searches the internet for product information and returns a list of online prices, local prices and customer reviews. The user interface is sleek and efficient; consumers can add products to their wish lists and set up price alerts (for when the product drops below a certain price). There is also a feature that lets users see the closest stores stocking the product on a map.
Price: free

SnapTell
SnapTell is a barcode scanner, online shopping and cataloging application for books, DVDs, CDs, video games and Blu-Ray disks. Users take a picture of the item cover (or barcode) they want to find out about and the application searches online for user ratings, descriptions and prices.
