Great app that has improved with time. When it does manage to focus and scan at the correct depth with good light, it is surprising when you magically find what you need. Also picks up text and can return many results regarding translation, codes, indexes as well as related images or works. There is still much out there that has not been indexed but if it's out there, a good scan will dig it up.
This app is a great concept I was really excited when I downloaded it but it just doesn't work properly yet, even for the things they say it can do. Instead of reading barcodes it goes for the text (even when there's barely any to read) can't read text properly either, puts spaces where there aren't any etc. So when you use the search function end up re-typing anyway. Hopefully this will reach it's potential because it could be great, but it's not there yet.
Is cool From what I can tell the main benefit of having this app is for shopping. The only issue I have it is that I struggle to find ways to use it, it seems more like a luxury than an essential tool. Maybe because I don't shop. I struggle looking for practical ways to use it other entertainment or information. Perhaps It's not for me. Its completely functional and always works well and surprisingly has never even so much as crashed. I like this app a lot , so I always keep it.
Google goggles I'm quite happy with the app even if I don't get a answer to all my photos. But dam near. I love this application so much because I learn more and more all the time. I give it a five out of five all day long for the evacuation value and potential to help answer questions about stuff I see everyday that I have no idea of what it is. Take a picture and most of the time I get a Web Link and I learn something new.
Please Everyone Watch The Video! If you take a picture of your cat or your nails or your handbag or something like that, OF COURSE IT WONT WORK! They said they are still WORKING on it, meaning you should take pictures of your Business Card or a famous building i.e. The Eiffel Tower. I cant stress enough the IMPORTANCE of watching the video like reading the label.
MotoZ2 12/7/2017 Most Updated Android Version Available I have used this app on many other devices and had no problems with it. However with this phone I cannot seem to "take a picture". As in, I will tap the button and it won't even register I am tapping the screen, while the camera running is fine. I can send video evidence by email to any support staff willing to look into this issue. Thank you very much for your time and effort. -Hunter
