RedLaser Barcode Scanner

It’s just astonishing that the RedLaser app can recognize barcodes using every iPhone, even the old models (original iPhone and iPhone 3G) which have no autofocus camera and produce blurry images like this one:

I’m surprised the app was accepted in the App Store – it obviously accesses the live video feed for which there is no public API available.
