Barnes & Noble iPhone app

So while I was creating a different post I went to the Barnes & Noble website... and guess what I saw on their front page? That's right they have created an iPhone app! So of course I had to immediately download it ... and it is truly amazing! Not only can you search for a store with the location finder (it even has a picture of each storefront), you can also use the camera to take a picture of any book, cd, or dvd and it will find it for you. I mean how amazing is it that I can take a picture of a book in my friends library and be able to buy it from my phone! Oh m gee, I just thought about how even MORE amazing it would be to be able to take a picture of a book from someone's blog ... and it worked even though the picture was kinda blurry since it was of a computer screen! :)

Very cool. I have the Indiebound app but you can't purchase books from it. I will have to look this one up. :)
