Amazon app comes to the iTunes app store

Analysis, News

The New York Times is reporting that will today make available a new application that will allow users to browse the Amazon store directly from their iPhone or iPod Touch.

One of the more intriguing aspects of the application will be a feature called “Amazon Remembers” which will allow users to take a photo of something in the real world, upload it to the cloud via their device whereupon an Amazon employee will then try and match the photo with a product from Amazon’s store.  Amazon notes that this process won’t yield instantaneous results, but will rather take anywhere between 5 minutes and 24 hours.  It will be interesting to see if users find this service beneficial, or absolutely pointless.
