ESRB launches a mobile app, IDs games from photos photo



The ESRB has launched a new iPhone and Android app that lets you take a snapshot of a game box to bring up ratings information for the title. Just in time for the holiday shopping season, with this app, mom and dad only need to whip out their phone and take a snapshot of the game box to get a ratings summary for the game.

The ESRB app is available for free on both the Apple App Store and the Android Market. 

Also, Blastman III looks like a fantastic game.
