Google Shopper for Android released: free app for shopaholics

Google has taken the wraps off its latest application for the Android platform, Google Shopper.

Shopper lets you search for product information by using your phone’s camera: point it at the object you’re interested in (e.g. books, CDs, DVDs, and video games) and Google will recognise what it’s looking at and serve up a list of search results, with links to prices, reviews and specs.

The service also works with most barcodes, and you can also speak the name of the product you’re looking for.

Searches can be starred and saved to the phone for offline use, and the free app works on all Android devices.

Here’s Daniel Switkin, the lantern jawed, pony-tailed Senior Software Engineer at Google, to tell us all:

If you already own an Android phone, scan in this barcode below to install the program:

  1. The Nexus1 is fast ain’t it? Assuming this isn’t clever edits? But anyway, very nice looking app…wonder what chances are there for an iPhone app?
