SnapTell Explorer iPhone App

By  | 


SnapTell Explorer bring a whole new meaning to snapping a picture. This cool little iPhone app allows you to grab snapshots of CDs, DVDs, or even books, and the app will automatically go through different rating engines to find out more about the product. You can get ratings, reviews, and all kinds of stuff after you take the picture.


The image recognition software is proprietary to SnapTell. These folks have gathered a ton of images of different products that you can match your snapshots against. While only U.S. items are so far supported, there is still a lot of products to choose from.

What I was impressed about was the ability of the application to recognize even the poorest images. I am not exactly great with the cam, but SnapTell could recognize my images 8 out of 10 times. The application does work better with Wi-Fi, but it’s as useful on the Edge network. Overall, for a free application, SnapTell is very impressive and useful.
