Comparison shopping with the Bing iPhone App

The latest version of the Bing for iPhone (and iPod Touch) app features visual scanning of barcodes and cover art. What would you do with that you say? Well, how about compare prices or read reviews? Andy Chu from the Bing for Mobile explains how to do this:

2. Point your camera over a barcode; and for books, music, movies, and video games, position the camera over cover art and tap to take a photo.

3. When Bing gets a match, you’ll see “1 result” in the lower corner. 

4. Click on that thumbnail to see product information like descriptions, reviews, prices, and links to merchant websites.  You can even click through to participating merchants to buy the item.

Handy!
