Barcodes for Comparison Shopping

Snappr.net has created an iPhone application that allows users to easily comparison shop with their mobile phones.  Simply scan a 1D barcode with the iPhone built-in camera and Snappr.net will do the rest.  The application will bring up information from several websites such as Amazon.com, allowing users to see various prices and reviews to help with a purchase decision.  The following video from Snappr.net shows a demonstration of this application and what it is capable of.

For those of us without iPhone’s, Snappr.net also offers a similar application that allows users to type in the barcode with their keypad at Snappr.mobi.  Snappr.net is currently in beta phase and is looking for iPhone owners who would like to try out the application.  For more information about participating in the test-phase you can visit Snappr.net.
