HTC phones could be an option for those hoping to use Google Shopper

People with a passion for the high street could be among the most likely to sell a mobile phone and make use of an updated app by Google.

Writing the Google Mobile Blog, senior software engineer at the search engine Daniel Switkin says Google Shopper 1.3 is even better than the original version of the tool.

Available to those with an Android-powered device, the function allows people to search for products in a range of categories.

People can also sort their results by price or brand, while a local availability feature has been included in the updated app.

"In addition, version 1.3 includes new Featured Lists – lists of products to help you shop during the holidays. You can browse through suggested gifts and then ... find the best place to buy them," Mr Switkin states.

A recent blog entry by Jon Skeet and Nick Radicevic told how Google had launched technology to allow mobile users to find applications in record time.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "For all you shopaholics out there, this new software could be for you! If you need information when you're on-the-go, you can get the latest technology by upgrading to an Android-powered device. If you trade-in your old phone, you could even make some cash!"
