Google Shopper: An app to help you survive Christmas

By / 11.12.12

It’s officially the Christmas shopping season, exemplified by grown men trying to discover if they really can buy literally anything off the Internet. You can’t, I’ve tried. But you can download an app that makes life easier when buying stuff for your relatives: Google Shopper.

Google Shopper is as simple as searching for an item in the app. You can also use your phone’s camera to scan barcodes or identify a movie, book, or game by its cover art. It also supports voice search.

Especially useful is the Sales page. This tracks what’s on sale locally, so if there’s something on your list, you can grab it for a lower price.

I put the app through its paces this week, and actually found it to be incredibly effective, if spotty depending on where you are. The big problem really is that you may not have connectivity in a store, so that renders the app pretty much completely useless. But it’s informative and can take anything you throw at it.

In short, it’ll get you the hell out of the store that much faster, and isn’t that what’s really important?

About Dan Seitz... Dan Seitz is a semi-professional nerd (he'll have to code a homebrew game for the NES before he goes pro). He grew up fiddling with video game systems, computers, cameras, and other technology you should never hand to an eight-year-old if you want it back in pristine condition. Currently, he lives in Boston with his girlfriend, her cat, a Shih Tzu, and far too many objects with processors.
