    Is there an app that uses the camera or barcode scanner to upload items to a "wish List" or "Gift Registry"?

    My wife and I are expecting, and we were walking through the baby store. I wanted to be able to take a picture of the item/barcode and upload the item to Amazon wish list for example, so we can later publish it or use that list to create other lists for our friends and family to see.

    All the apps I found just look for physical and internet stores and shows their prices for the particular item.

    Glad we're on the same wavelength. Let me know if you can create this!

    Thanks!

    that would be a cool app to have - expecially if you could share the list.

    Ex: use it to make a gift list for items the wife and kids could get me for birthday, Chrismas, etc.

    ShopSavvy will let you scan barcodes into a list on your phone but you can't share it or take a picture (at least I don't think you can)

    yes great idea, i'mn looking for this - which is why i'm on this page as i googled this even though i'm a member here already. When making android apps how hard is it to make a decent desktop version to integrate?

    Hey Guys, it is done. I just uploaded my Gift Registry app called I Wish I Had.

    It uses the barcode scanner to look up products. Then once you tap the item & confirm, it will post to Facebook. This way all your friends and family (I don't know about you, but my Mom is FB) and they will see what you want. Making holidays and birthdays just a tad better.

    Let me know what you think.
