New Android App: Google Shopper

Today, Google Labs released their latest app, Google Shopper.  This new app rivals apps like Shopsavvy which offer you easy access to product pricing and information.  With Google Shopper you can find products by cover art, barcode, voice, and text.
  • Image Search: Just point your phone at a product and hold still, there's no need to press the shutter button.
    • This currently only works with books, CDs, DVDs, and video games.  Hopefully more recognition capabilities like what Google Goggles offers will improve this app.
  • Barcode Scanner: Same as image search, just point phone at the barcode!
  • Voice Search: With speech-to-text abilities, your phone can search for something even if you don't have it in front of you.
When you scan an item you can see prices at various stores so you can get the best price.  Also, you can read reviews of the item as well as official details.  If you want to save an item for later, just click the star.  Or, share the item on Twitter or Facebook to let your friends/family know what you want!

The UI is very slick and intuitive which really makes this app quick and easy to use. Try it out for yourself today and let us know how it works for you. Will it give Shopsavvy a run for its money?
