Sales Price App
Wasn't there an app on a commercial that showed where you could take a picture of a barcode or pricetag and it would bring up the same item at several different retailers? Was out shopping for appliances and this would be amazing - not sure if this exists or if I was dreaming. Any help?

I use the SnapTell program. As was stated, it is for movies, books and CDs. However, it is advertised as being based on American items (movies, music, etc...). I've tested it on Japanese and Indian and it worked perfectly. So, it's a pretty useful product only not what you had in mind.

Try Cyclops. Its a free app that lets you take a pic of the UPC. It then decodes what the product is and will tell you the price on Amazon. It only works with the 3Gs camera though.
I used it a few times and it does work, but I find it faster/easier to just use the Amazon app and search for the product name. If it searched more stores it would be better.

RedLaser works well in theory but it only finds the product about 20% of the time. When it does, it's pretty cool and does exactly what you describe.
Shopsavvy for Android does the same thing apparently almost to perfect. They have a Twitter page and I know they have been trying to submit an app for Iphone but ran into a snag of some sort.
