Google released the iOS version of their Google Shopper app yesterday, and all I have to say is wow!
If you are like me, you’ve tried barcode scanners and shopper apps before, and you have always felt dissatisfied with their real world performance—either in their ability to scan or their ability to serve up relevant results.
Google Shopper gets it Right
The scanner is quick and easy. There is no need for alignment of the barcode, and the thing even uses image recognition to scan book covers, CDs and DVDs. Another nice feature is the fact that it’s capable of being completely hands free in regards to product search, by incorporating Google voice recognition.
I’m completely astonished of how accurate this application is. I have officially removed all other shopper apps from my iPhone, amazing.
There are a couple of things I could see improved upon in the product search area regarding retailer information and multiple results for similar products, but the app is free and it’s far better than any other shopper app you may have downloaded in the past. So, I strongly recommend that you download this app today, and then come back here and tell me if I’m not right.
