SnapTell

I just found this a couple of days ago, even though it has been out for a while.
The app is SnapTell fir the iPhone. All you need to do is take a picture of any book, CD, or DVD, and SnapTell will search for the item, and give you multiple sources to purchase the item, either online or locally…
No need to use a barcode, ISBN, of title… You don’t even actually need to have the actual item in hand, my first search was actually a picture taken from my screen of the book Top Fat to Fish. I have not tried it yet nut I’d be willing to bet it would work off of a picture taken off of a tv…
What I have found is that it doesn’t find photography magazines, fans, or cans of Barq’s root beer, but can find Venture Brothers season 1 DVD, and tell you where you can find it locally if you have that urgent itch that needs scratching… It will also point you to any wiki entries as well as IMDB entries for DVD’s…
