Visual product search app maker SnapTell acquired by Amazon

SnapTell, maker of the iPhone and Android app of the same name, has been acquired by Amazon to become part of its A9 line-up.

The SnapTell app enables users to snap a picture of the cover of any DVD, CD, Book or Video game with their phone, and the app will return:
- info on the product from its huge product database,
- reviews, best prices from partner websites and retail stores,
- directions to the retail store you select,
- and the ability to purchase straight from the phone.

If you own an iPhone, you can try it for yourself HERE.

Pretty neat!

A little more user-friendly than the ShopSavvy app where you actually have to snap a picture of the barcode of the product to get info on it.
