As well as releasing a new 4.3 version of Google Maps last night, Google also pushed out an update to its Shopper Android price comparison app – complete with support for UK retailers for the first time.
The idea is simple – scan bar codes, take photos of product boxes or even use Google’s voice recognition tool to say the names of items, then the OMNIPRESENT search giant will ping you back with a list of alternate products and prices.
Didn’t work with Pringles, did work with a book. Have fun playing with bar codes, kids! Thanks to Mark & DarkTheory for the heads-up.
