Pros & Cons:
- Goggle Googles meets Bar Code Scanner
- Visual Search with image scanning
- Voice Search
- U.S. only pricing
- Voice Search needs some improvements
“Like the love child of Barcode Scanner and Google Goggles“, raves Jessica Dolcourt of CNET. Shopper Android App allows you to bar code scan or photo scan products to get more information like pricing, where to buy online or near by, product details, favorites and history. Enjoy three input methods: type search, say your search or Visual Search by scan a products’ bar code or pointing the phones camera at the product.
The Voice Search ironically could use some improving. I tried some voice searches for “Nexus One“, to my surprise it either didn’t understand me or search something else like “nexos 1”. Here I would imagine Google bringing some techniques from the Web than make our lives easier like, corrective search suggestions. Although it’s not completely perfect, the technology is on the cusp of something great!

Shopper Android app is both useful and cool with shopping and comparing products.
Ease of Use:
Shopper has evolved a step easier than predecessor Goggle Goggles as you don’t have to focus and take a picture of the product in that regard, simply hold the camera in front of the product and let it scan it and find. Sweet!
