The Ocado On The Go app allows Android users to browse Ocado’s virtual aisles simply by using the sound of their voice.  Everything from eggs to books and toys are included in Ocado’s 21,000 item range, all accessible for order using voice power alone.

Thanks to the product list being stored locally on the phone, shopping orders can even be created offline, ready to be automatically sent once you come in range of an internet connection.

Jason Gissing, co-founder of Ocado, explains: “Our continual motivation is to make food shopping as quick and painless as possible for customers; we’re thrilled to now be doing this via an innovative Android app.

Visit the Android Marketplace on your handset to grab the app.
