Sunday, August 22, 2010With the new technology on many Android cellphones that are able to scan barcodes, the creators of phone apps are jumping on board to release different ways to use this feature. One free application is SnapTell which not only scans barcodes and directs the user to a web search, it specifically finds related content. It focuses on media products such as books, movies, music, and video games, but will also generate a Google search for other products. Say you are scanning a video game, you can find comparable prices online and even purchase it right from your phone to lock in the lower price! Besides the price, you will also find reviews of the game online and this may help you determine if you really should buy the product or not. Find out what other people are saying before you take it home! Also, it will direct you to searches of the product on YouTube and you can find videos or screen shots of the game.
