TicTap — Search Amazon using SMS Messages

TictapThe new TicTap service lets you search the Amazon product catalog using an SMS (text) message. To get started with TicTap, simply send an ISBN number, a UPC code, or even some keywords to 763-807-3927 and wait for the reply. TicTap performs an ECS search and returns the results to you as a text message.

The returned message includes the Product name, the Amazon price, the list price, the review count, and even the Amazon ‘star’ rating.

The screen shot at right shows a sample message as returned by TicTap.
