It appears that not long after the T-Mobile G1 comes out the iPhone starts snatching features like there is no tomorrow. First feature the iPhone received was Google Street View, a feature thought to be an Android exclusive. Now the iPhone gets its own Amazon store.
While this Amazon application is not the exact same as Amazon MP3, it still takes a little bit of the G1’s sunshine. The Amazon app allows you to browse and shop Amazon.com, read reviews and even snap a picture of an item that you are interested in. The photo is then uploaded to your account where it will be matched up to the photo of the product you would like. If your product is found you will receive a notification email.
See someone wearing a pair of socks that you simply must have? Just snap a photo and your well on your way. This service is still in the experimental stages, but seems to be a fantastic way to help customers shop for whatever they need while on the go. The Amazon app has a very clean usable interface that makes browsing and comparing prices a breeze.
