Internet grocer Peapod released Peapod Mobile, a new application allowing customers to shop for groceries from their mobile phones.

SKOKIE, Ill. — Internet grocer Peapod here on Monday released Peapod Mobile, a new application allowing customers to shop for groceries from their mobile phones.

The free app is available for iPhone/iPod touch, Android and Palm Pre users and contains Peapod's most convenient shopping features along with some features designed exclusively for the mobile app, including search functions and weekly specials.

"In a recent Peapod survey we learned that more than 63% of respondents sometimes or frequently forgot to buy something they really need by grocery shopping," Thomas Parkinson, chief technology officer for Peapod, said in a statement. "With Peapod Mobile, customers can minimize that risk by adding items to their cart whenever or wherever they may think of them."
