It looked promising on the Science Channel's show outrageous acts of science but the actual app can't identify anything other than a remote control and a water bottle. I hope development continues to improve the quality because it's a good idea for those visually impaired.
First why charge the people that need it the most monthly. Second it only can identify a few things. Like a pill bottle, wouldn't it be better to read the label so they know what pill it is? In the video it does Pepsi and coke, what could save a life k owing what pill is in the bottle or what manufacturers made the sugary drink?
Nice idea shame the recognition is really bad. I tried it with a few objects in the general mode and some of them were really wrong. I also tried the plant recognition on a couple of house plants and some it got wrong and others it just failed to say anything. I am not sure if it got anything correct and so I would not use it even for free and to think that for some features like the plant recognition they expect you to pay a subscription, it really needs to improve a lot before I would even consider paying any money for this.
The blind must pay for use? Such a shame. Most who can afford it take their vision for granted. Let me know when it is available to the blind living alone, in need of it, but can't afford it.
Its a promising app. I tried it and it did good but when I subscribed for the free trial the app could not recognize the appliances in my room such as my transistor radio and it did not recognize philippine peso. I am having second thoughts if I will still push for the app to charge my credit card after the trial period. Hoping for the best.
The app itself is pretty amazing. It doesn't get everything right, but it gets a LOT of stuff right. The only thing I can find wrong with it is it's pronunciation of some simple words...such as "dog" and "fan". Can't wait to see what updates come and I've already recommended it to my legally blind brother.
