Snaptell App Gives You Details on Books By Using Your Camera Phone

Snaptell App Lets You Comparison Shop, Read Reviews

It comes as no surprise that I like books. There's just something about having a shelf full of good reads to comb through when I need it. And although I like having the option of reading a book on my iPhone, I prefer the real deal. So when I'm perusing the bookstore and see an interesting cover I like, but know nothing about the content, I can check out reviews and details about the book with just a click of my camera phone.

Called Snaptell, this little (free!) app comes in handy in these situations. To find out how it works, just

.

Just take a quick photo of the book cover using your camera phone, and send it through the Snaptell app. In seconds you'll get prices and reviews from various sites (Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Google, etc.) so you can make an informed purchase. But not only does Snaptell give you the lowdown on books, but it works for DVDs, CDs, and video games as well. Snaptell is available for free on the iPhone and Android G1, and will be coming soon to Blackberry and Windows Mobile phones.

I downloaded SNAPTELL the other day and gave it a try. Not bad but I havent bought a book in months (what with the economy and all) but its good to keep a record of what I would like to borrow from the library :)
