I normally don’t promote client achievements–I’m proud of my clients but feel weird blogging about their (non-privileged) information. But it’s not often that one of my clients gets nominated for a Crunchie.
The Crunchies is an annual competition and award ceremony to recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups, internet and technology innovations of the year. They are co-hosted by GigaOm, VentureBeat, Silicon Alley Insider, and TechCrunch, while the internet community is invited to choose who wins.
Here’s what ShopSavvy does on the Google Phone:
ShopSavvy is a shopping assistant developed for Google’s Android mobile phone platform and is one of T-Mobile’s featured applications in their 2008/2009 US and EU launch. Users can scan the bar code of any product using their phone’s built-in camera. ShopSavvy will then search for the best prices online and through the inventories of nearby, local stores using the phone’s built-in GPS. ShopSavvy won Google’s Android Developer Challenge and is available in Google’s Market.
So if you get the chance, vote for ShopSavvy.
