Price Check by Amazon
By AMZN Mobile LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Ever wondered if you were getting the best price on a product when you were out shopping? With Price Check by Amazon, you can use your iPhone to compare prices instantly with Amazon.com and its merchants while on-the-go. Price Check enables you to search for Amazon products quickly using barcode, picture, voice, and text search, and access product descriptions and customer reviews to guide you in making informed purchase decisions. And to make in-store price comparison even better, we’re introducing a new price sharing feature that helps ensure our prices remain competitive for our customers.
When you find a low price while using the app, simply log into your Amazon account to complete a secure purchase. All prices are in U.S. dollars, and all products are from the U.S. Amazon store. Price Check also supports sharing via text message or e-mail link; immediate purchasing using 1-Click ordering and Amazon Prime. This app is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 devices, and camera-enabled iPod touch devices running iOS 4 or greater.
Search for products using four easy methods:
• Scan a barcode: Amazon’s barcode scanner will match your item and provide Amazon and merchant product pricing instantly.
• Snap a picture: This app uses Amazon’s photo matching algorithm to instantly match your picture to books, DVDs, CDs, video games, and more.
• Say the product name: Speak your search queries and use voice search to return accurate product matches and Amazon’s pricing.
• Type your search: Type the product name to retrieve instant matches.

Good tool BUT...
...there are a few things that don't work like they should:
1. The initial price(s) you get when you search for an item are not always correct.
2. The product reviews are not sorted by most recent. In fact, I can't even figure out if it's sorted by most helpful.
3. You cannot post a product review.
4. If you minimize the app, the maximize it, it brings you back to the home screen rather than where you left off.
Otherwise...I use it all the time.
Does exactly what it says
The scan function works fine on the iPhone 5.
Great to price check
I use it to price check - super helpful. Sometimes price shown is not prime price but will show only lowest price.
