OMG! I am pleased and proud to announce that we won Google’s Android Developers Challenge with our GoCart™ application. Of course, the credit really should go to Rylan Barnes, GoCart’s developer. Here is the release from Google and the post explaining the contest here. GoCart was built specifically for Google’s Android mobile phone platform. GoCart users can easily scan the barcode of any product using their phone’s built-in camera. Once scanned, GoCart will search the inventories of nearby, local stores using data from the phone’s built-in GPS. Soon we will port GoCart to the iPhone and enable mobile payments.
Over the past year the Big in Japan team has become more and more involved with mobile applications. Our initial focus was the iPhone (applications like iPhoneVote), but quickly we began working on Google’s Android mobile phone building a fun application called SocialTones. Recently we decided to reinvent Big in Japan to focus exclusively on the development of mobile applications. GoCart is our first serious mobile application with a real business model behind it.
