Amazon Mobile App with experimental photo feature

I can't remember if there was an Amazon mobile app before, but if there was, there's a new feature out where you can take a photo of something, and if it's a product, then it will send you back prices and related products. Cool, eh?

I'm hopelessly in love with Amazon.com so I'm glad to see this.

Just an update (and a shameless bump ) I tried it out this morning by taking a pretty fuzzy picture of a film SLR I had lying around. It returned it with another Digital SLR, but of the same brand and almost the same name (but definitely not the same camera ) but it's also a very old camera.

So test it out yourself and see what results you get. I'll try it out more tonight.

Either way, if you shop on Amazon, I'd pick up this app for no cost to you. Why not, right?

The cool thing about this feature is that Amazon is actually employing a group of people that are looking through the pictures you submit and researching them!

That alone would make this app worth paying for!
