Android phone owners should now be able to become smarter consumers. A free app called Google Shopper has been released, and with it, users are supposed to find it easier than ever to look up product specs, check out reviews, and compare prices.
Google Shopper doesn’t quite represent some breakthrough. Instead, it combines the image recognition abilities offered by Google Goggles with the barcode-scanning feature Google Product Search for mobile introduced in May. Plus some voice recognition tech that’s been in development for even longer.
