SnapTell is an app for the Android platform that lets you find out information on products just by snapping a picture of the item or it’s barcode. This app is definitely worth checking out and works really well.
The app is very simple and easy to use. You only have three options to select from when you start up the app: Upload a picture from your photo album, take a picture directly from the app, or scan a barcode. Once you upload the picture that you want to find more information on, SnapTell will send the information out to try and find a match.
When the information returns, you’ll be brought to a page with all the details SnapTell could find. Usually this involves an image of the item, a list of prices that you can expand, and plenty of different links related to the item. These links will launch inside the app itself, which is pretty cool considering most Android apps load up web links through the Android browser.
SnapTell is a great and useful app for the Android platform that all users should download. It’s handy and works well, especially if you’re scanning barcodes. The fact that you can pull images from your photo album means that you don’t have to run the app right then and there, you can simply take a photo and save it for later. If you have an Android phone, definitely download this app.
