Thanks David! It's been a long but amazing road since we first met you at a hotel lobby near La Guardia =)!

Thanks for the kind words Tony! We didn't intend on any speed improvement, but maybe it feels faster/snappier because of the lower memory usage.

Also, where did you see a poster? We actually haven't seen one in the wild yet =)!

I'll tell you what, I'll give you the nice face discount, only 300K! At that price we're practically giving it away.

Hi Paul, which country are you using RedLaser in (US/UK/?). Also, can you send us a list of the barcodes that didn't return results to info@occipital.com (you can use the email list features)? It can help us see what's going on. You should be seeing results from TheFind and Google in most cases.

Thanks Olly, it's definitely silly for them to just cut off the business we're sending them.

Apologies again for the mistake of removing Google. We should have tested more thoroughly, especially in the UK. We appreciate the feedback from users like you, and we hope to bring back Amazon officially soon.

Alex, we definitely appreciate this. We agree that the policy seems silly since all we were doing was sending them business. We're going to try to figure out a way to show the results with Amazon's consent, and it might help to have people sending in complaints. If there is a way to do this, we will update on this blog. Thanks =)!

Do you mean mysupermarket.co.uk? We've already got it on there: http://www.redlaser.com/apps. The icon is not that nice, but it should work =).

Hi Steve, yes you can do this all through the iPhone browser. Here are modified instructions with an example of Sainsbury's:

1. Go to the Sainsbury's website (www.sainsburys.co.uk) in Mobile Safari. Type in a barcode like 0043000014264 and do a search.
2. Copy the browser address and paste it into the URL box.
URL: http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/sol/global_search/glo...

3. Notice that "GLOBAL_DATA._search_term1" is the parameter with the barcode. Type that into the Param box, and that's it!
Param: GLOBAL_DATA._search_term1

Then hit build, and follow the instructions on screen.
