Default Amazon app - anyone able to use Amazon Remembers feature?

Please Login to Remove!

Amazon says you can snap a photo of an item and Amazon will search for it. I am not sure where/how you do that. Any ideas?

Download the Amazon App for Blackberry to search, shop, and buy anywhere!

you access it from the remembers tab at the top. Take a picture then click 2x on the trackball and it sends the photo. Then they will attempt to locate the item in the picture and email you it they are successful. It's working about 50% of the time for me. Was trying to get a drop in voyager sata 2.5 & 3 hd reader that supports 2tb hds(but the only they found is the old out of date version).

It works ok overall, like the ability to track my orders/packages directly on the app but it is a heafty app(i think its around 700k) and nothing is store locally(offline) unfortunately

I mean you basically are viewing amazon just a better interface than BlackBerry Browser or Opera or Bolt. It is cool to be able to compare online prices from in store prices.

However I doubt I would be really buying soemthing this way. I think this picture thing would be very cool but I have no idea how it works.

EDIT: After I replied here, I noticed another member explained what to do. Sorry that I missed that. Anyway. It works pretty good. I took a pic of my MacBook Pro where the laptop has teh lid closed down but its in teh vertical position and a few minutes later I got an email suggesting teh Macbook Pro available at Amazon. The only difference is that my model is the previous generation and this showed me the current one (probably bc they dont carry the old). Good job Amazon!

I love the new app. I have bought a few items straight from the BB. Super simple and easy.

The remembers feature works well and is cool but I don't really find any use for it.
