You'll feel like a deal-sniffing super sleuth once you start using the RedLaser bar code–scanning and price-comparing app. Scan the bar code on a product you're interested in, then see how much the same item costs at multiple locations in the area as well as at thousands of online and offline retailers.

Download the Key Ring app and ditch the plastic and paper loyalty cards filling your wallet and dangling from your real key ring. Simply snap a pic of each card to digitally store all your loyalty, rewards and membership cards in one mobile location.
