TicTap — Search Amazon using SMS Messages

by Jeff Barr | on | in Cool Sites | | Comments

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.
