To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

Everyday we see more Windows Phone 7 applications poping out. This time, XDA member HerrVorragend presents Personal Shopping Assist, another great tool where you can take a picture of the bar code and then look for it´s price, rates and details over the Internet. The search engine used for locating products is google-shopping but the developer is working to include other engines such amazon and many more.

[App] Personal Shopping Assist – Barcodereader
my first app called “Personal Shopping Assist” has arrvied at the marketplace.
With PSA you can take a picture from a product barcode an then have a look at the best price from the internet. So you can decide to buy it in the shop or order it online.
At the moment the app searches with google-shopping but in the next version I’ll add support for ebay, amazon and son german price-finding-websites. And for the future it is planed to support testwebsites like ciao! too, so you can read what a product is rated befor you buy it.
Till now only version 1.0 is online, but version 1.1 is already in the certification-process. With version 1.1 the barcode recognition has dramtically increased.
Thank you to everyone to try it

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
