RedLaser iPhone app that leverages your camera to scan barcodes, announces that it has been downloaded over 2 million times. Of those 2 million downloads, 950,000 of users have been active in the last month, Occipital CEO Jeff Powers informed to TechCrunch. In case you’re wondering, the 50 millionth product was a Deuter Backpack, scanned by a RedLaser user in Germany at 1:14 PM GMT on May 8, 2010. “RedLaser lets you scan the barcode of nearly any item with your iPhone camera. It then tells you where you can buy that same item and for how much in the local area, allowing you to comparison shop easily. It also provides data from online retailers in case a local shop doesn’t have the information.”
