I finally got around to upgrading my phone and decided to go with the G1 (aka the ‘google phone’ from T-Mobile) since I really love having access to email and everything from my phone. The last phone was a T-Mobile Dash (long story there) that I was really not a fan of since it’s Windows Mobile and let me tell you now that Internet Explorer on the mobile version crashes about as often as the non-mobile version used to.
So, the other day I was browsing through the applications in the marketplace that one can download and install on the G1 and happened to come across ShopSavvy. Now the average person would think that this is a neat app – you go into a store for something, pick it up, and let ShopSavvy scan it quickly before deciding to buy it there or somewhere else that’s cheaper. ShopSavvy, using the camera, scans the barcode on the item and delivers you the lowest prices on the web and locally based on your GPS location.
Me? I nearly tripped over my own feet racing towards the yarn stash. Most of the yarn I’ve got is from indie dyers and there’s no barcode, but I managed to find a few!
