There’s been talk around the Web the past few days about a new app that can help you reduce junk mail. It’s put out by a company called Readabl, Inc. and how it works is simple: You take a picture of any junk mail that would wish to stop receiving – magazines, catalogs, fliers, credit card offers, the Yellow Pages, etc. and they will submit a request to the company on your behalf to stop the unwanted mail. Readabl, Inc. has supposedly put together a large database of company information which they will they will then match to the photo you submitted.
The app is free for the moment although I would be definitely willing to pay for something like this.

They did post some examples and results to a blog entry that you might want to check out. The app is available for iOS, Android and Windows phone. If you experience excessive amounts of unwanted paper mail, this app might be worth checking out.
