New price comparison app launched for iPhone

ReadWriteWeb has a post about a barcode based price comparison app:

German company has today launched what it claims is the world’s first mobile price search engine with integrated barcode scanner. It’s an iPhone app called iBARCODE, which enables users to scan product barcodes and find the best prices. It currently only works in the U.S., U.K, Germany and France.

To scan, the user simply holds the iPhone over a product’s barcode. The integrated camera in the iPhone essentially takes a photograph of the barcode, from which the app recognizes the product and finds the best offers on the Internet for it.

…the company says has more than 65 million product offerings from more than 10,000 online shops worldwide.
