iOS: In conjunction with upcoming Black Friday sales and the holiday season, Amazon has just added a fun new feature to their iOS app that let’s you know what’s inside a package without having to open the box.
Just click the camera within the Amazon app (which you can also use to search for stuff by taking a picture of the item you want), and there’s a new “Package X-Ray” button. Then you show it the barcode that’s on the shipping label of the package. It’ll match it with your recent orders and show you what’s inside. (You can only see things that you ordered yourself; it won’t work with random packages on your neighbor’s doorstep).
What’s the point? Well if you want to wrap the box as a present, now you can. You don’t even need to wear a lead apron.
