App taked advantage of camera auto-focus
Big In Japan's popular Android app ShopSavvy has finally been ported to the iPhone platform. The software utilizes the phone's integrated camera to scan barcodes, enabling users to quickly view information such as local and online prices and inventory availability. The app was believed to be awaiting the auto-focus capabilities of the latest iPhone 3GS, however the developer claims it is compatible with the full range of iPhone generations.
The interface provides options to create wish lists, call stores, browse websites, or share content with friends. The local retail locations are displayed on a map, with directions available as needed.
ShopSavvy can be downloaded for free from the app store. [via TechCrunch]
