Amazon Mobile iPhone app lets users search via photo

Amazon.com has released its new Amazon Mobile application for the iPhone and iPod touch. The new application allows users to search and browse products offered by both Amazon and various third-party partners, access Customer Reviews, and make purchases using 1-Click Shopping. In addition, the app offers an experimental feature called “Amazon Remembers.” Users may snap a picture of an item using the iPhone’s camera, and then upload it to Amazon, which then tries to find products similar to the ones in the photos. When the user receives the results, they may purchase the item immediately, or “remember” it for later reference in his/her Amazon account. Amazon Mobile is available now as a free download from the App Store.

  1. Yes, sadly this is only available on the U.S. Store at this point, largely because the app itself is only built to use Amazon.COM (ie, the U.S. Store version), so it wouldn’t really be all that useful outside of the U.S.

    Hopefully versions for Amazon.ca and other countries will be coming soon….
