Calendars manages Google Calendar data
eBay has acquired the barcode scanning app RedLaser, while Readdle has released a new iPhone app for managing Google Calendars.
eBay has announced the acquisition of RedLaser, the barcode scanning app for the iPhone. The company plans to integrate the technology into its own apps, including eBay Marketplace, eBay Selling, StubHub and Shopping.com. Users will be able to quickly create eBay listings by accessing pricing trends and product details for items in the company's catalog. An independent version of RedLaser should remain in the App Store as a free download.
