Android Barcode App Connects to Google Book Search

Google has released a nifty Android app that permits the scanning of a book’s barcode, enabling the linkage with the corresponding work in Google Book Search. From E-Reads:

“Google has announced a book-text search tool called the Barcode Scanner that works with an Android-powered cellphone. According to Google Book Search engineer Jeff Breidenbach, when you download the software into your Android and point your phone camera at a book’s barcode, “it will automatically zoom, focus and scan the ISBN – without you even needing to click the shutter…You’ll then have the option to search the full text of the book on Google Book Search right away”
