It is just Update-a-Go-Go this week! Monday, I published my review of Red Laser, Tuesday, Google Voice goes out of Beta which prompted yesterday’s update, and Thursday amidst all the iPhone hype, eBay announces that they have purchased Red Laser and that the app is now Free. What will today bring?
Yup, on Monday it was on sale for $0.99, and on Thursday it is a new Free app. What an odd turn. Then again a bunch of apps have gone free to gain market share after the iPhone 4 launch.
It will be interesting to see where Red Laser goes now that eBay is running the show. I imagine that eBay integration will be one of the first new features to be added. But I could also see Red Laser’s technology finding its way into point of sale applications, or even being able to list something on eBay by scanning the barcode on the box. I guess we’ll see.
