ShopSavvy is a shopping assistant developed for Google’s Android mobile phone platform and was T-Mobile’s featured application for their US launch of the G1 in October of 2008. Users can scan the bar code of any product using their phone’s built-in camera.Sounds great doesn't it? Fun at least. So I just scanned this:
ShopSavvy will then search for the best prices online and through the inventories of nearby, local stores using the phone’s built-in GPS. ShopSavvy won Google’s Android Developer Challenge and is available in Google’s Market.
And this is what Shopsavvy told me it was.
Two words. EPIC FAIL!
I'm thinking there is great potential for a meme here of other amusing Shopsavvy system failures.
