Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle.

Get the Best Price With AmazonIt! v1.3
Not too long ago, an app surfaced for WM that did what many popular apps for Android and iPhone do – read bar codes and look for pricing for items on the web. The app, known as AmazonIt!, has been worked on extensively by XDA member zaijian who just released v 1.3. In case you are not aware of what it does, as previously stated, the app is used to scan bar codes, which are then compared to item numbers in Amazon. Very useful to see if you are getting a good deal… or not.
This version of the app has had many bug fixes since v1.0, which among other things include better scrolling and the ability to recognize ISBN numbers (serial numbers for books). Also, it is now compatible with Amazon websites in many parts of the world.
- Scan, load, or input UPC/EAN barcodes, ISBN, ASIN
- Retrieve product info, prices, and ratings from Amazon.com
- Launch product link in your mobile browser
- Send product information via email
