Alexander Muse MEETS GS1 MobileCom Work Group


Big in Japan co-founder Alexander Muse met this week with the GS1 MobileCom Work Group (a global standards organization WITH focus on the mobile extension of GS1 standards.) to offer feedback and advice based on user experience with ShopSavvy, the popular comparison shopping application for mobile phones.

The meeting took place June 23-24 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass.

ShopSavvy enables users to comparison shop on the go, simply by scanning any product's barcode using a Google Android phone's built-in camera. Using the barcode information, ShopSavvy searches the Web for the best prices on the product, displaying the lowest prices online as well as at nearby brick-and-mortar retailers. ShopSavvy looks up product reviews to further assist with purchase decisions.

Big In Japan was one of the original winners of the Google Android Challenge in September 2008 for its development of ShopSavvy. The application has since won a 2009 Netexplorateur of the Year award at the French Senate in Paris. Big in Japan also was a finalist for the international MobileMonday Mobile Peer Awards as well as the 2008 Crunchies.

The most recent release of ShopSavvy can be downloaded at the Android Market at http://www.android.com/market or at the Big in Japan Web site at http://bit.ly/sslatest.
