Best New Mashups: Amazon

John Musser, June 28th, 2006

SimilarityWebContinuing this week’s review of good new mashups, here are a few built using Amazon’s API:

  • Similarity Web: Search for any product on Amazon and visualize its 2-level deep similarity web in Flash. Nice visualization.
  • Amazon CLI: A unique browser based command line interface to Search, browse and purchase Amazon products all via the command line — welcome to the world of Zero-click shopping. Firefox only.
  • Frucall: Frucall is a free phone-based price-comparison shopping service for consumers to compare prices and purchase products using their cell phones, anywhere, anytime. Frucall tries to combine the benefits of in-store shopping with the flexible nature of shopping online.
  • A marketspace that aggregates deals and rebates for a wide range of products.
