iPhone App – Amazon Mobile finally has released an app for the iPhone platform. Amazon is a great tool for comparison shopping as well as looking up reviews of other users – is one of the best review sites for all kinds of products (from books to music to electronics). An interesting tool that the Amazon app introduces is called “Amazon Remembers”. Amazon remembers lets you take a picture of a product that you wish to remember to research latter. Amazon will store the image on their server and in addition try and recognize the product in the image and send you an alert if they find the product on their site. (Not sure if images are recognized using machine learning or using human eyes).

The app also provides you with access to your account, which means that you can use 1-click to purchase products, view and edit your wish-lists and more.
