Back in November, Google announced their Shopper app for Android. Millions of Android users have downloaded it and now it’s time for us iOS users to get a taste. Thats right, Google Shopper is now available for iPhone. The Google Mobile Blog has just posted a formal introduction to the app. In case you didn’t know, Shopper turns your iPhone into a shopping assistant so you can learn more about products and read relevant user reviews, compare prices at online and local stores, and save and share products for later consideration.
Shopper checks your searches by cover art, barcodes, typing or voice search then after you get your results you can choose a specific product that you like. It also lets you compare prices from other retailers and even locate nearby shops that sell your product. Some retailers will even provide inventory information so you can check and see if your trip across town will be worth it.
Google Shopper also lets you star products and add them to your gift list for later. Want to share your findings? No problem, Shopper lets you share across your social networks as well. Google Shopper is FREE and available now, so get it here.
Shopper is available for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with iOS 4.0+ in English only for the United States and the UK.
