Flow Powered by Amazon is an augmented reality app that lets you discover information about items around you. With Flow you can identify tens of millions of products, including books, DVDs, and packaged household items like a box of cereal or a box of tissues. You can also quickly scan and dial phone numbers or launch websites effortlessly.

To get started, point your camera at:
- Book covers- Video games
- DVDs & CDs
- Packaged goods like games and toys
- A box of cereal.

Flow will also decode:
- UPC barcodes
- QR codes
- Phone numbers & web addresses.

New with 2.0, Flow uses text recognition to enhance product discovery, enable scan and launch phone numbers and websites. Our “Snippets” beta feature lets you decode and copy small chunks of text. Flow uses A9.com's continuous scan technology to automatically recognize items, and overlay information using augmented reality.

Once you launch the app, aim your camera towards the items you want to identify. Flow will begin recognizing items immediately. Move your phone over one or more items, and information is automatically delivered to the screen. As with earlier releases, Flow helps you discover more about products available on Amazon.com. If you want to learn more about a product, or find out about related items, or read customer reviews, tap on the product information preview that appears on the screen.

You can also share product details with friends via email, or Twitter, or make purchases on Amazon.com. For some products, Flow will display media previews, like audio clips or video clips that can be viewed almost instantly. Flow’s History feature gives you access to all your scanned items, sorted by date, product category, item name, or scan type.

    After reading a few reviews, I decided to try this app. Under good light I was able to scan what I had on hand in the kitchen and bathroom. This will make shopping at amazon easier for me.

    I used this in dim light in my bedroom and just grabbed things within arms reach. I started scanning barcodes and it found everything with the exception of an ashtray and cigarettes, which it stated was not available on Amazon. I've tried other programs and this was not slow, so I don't know where that complaint comes from. I'm deleting the other programs and keeping this one.

    Scanning items do not match the real selling price of items when you input the ISBN into the Amazon site, this APP cost me money already, this is a misleading APP for book resellers.

    I tried numerous things around my living spaces and all it picked up on was a shaving cream can because I actually scanned the barcode. Not sure how anyone would ever use this since it can't recognize the front of products.
