Google iPhone shopping app gets British release

Google has  introduced a new version of its Shopper mobile app which lets owners search for products using their phones. This new app is an iPhone compatible version and can be used in the following way:

You take a photo of the product or its barcode, type in the product name, or you can just name the product aloud into your iPhone and Google’s Shopper will immediately become a search engine facility finding prices, reviews from websites and social media  channels, and it will suggest which local shops have available stock. How cool is that!

The Google Mobile blog announced Shopper’s introduction, saying: “Google Shopper turns your phone into a shopping assistant, so you can learn more about products and read relevant user reviews, compare prices…, (and) save and share products for later consideration.”

Google’s Shopper is a step beyond other similar apps already available as it offers a more comprehensive price comparison facility. A previous app by Google, Google Goggles, is superseded by the new Shopper.

Best of all it is free! The Google Shopper app is available from the search engine company’s App store. It is available for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0+ in English only for the UK and United States.

If you are still waiting for release of the white iPhone 4 techies in the know suggest it will become available in March. However, there are some good deals available now online for the black iPhone 4 16GB and 32GB. These handsets come with Wi Fi connectivity as well as their own HSDPA connection offering fast WiFi access, in addition to Bluetooth and USB connectivity, in conjunction with EDGE and GPRS. This provides a myriad of alternative connection options, sufficient to cater for any eventuality.

The iPhone can be further enhanced by adding additional applications such as the latest free Shopping app from Google. The iPhone remainsthe leader of smartphones due to its outstanding versatility which is missing from many other mobile phones that are currently available in the market.
