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's greatest potential With pictures everywhere (including fb, IG, and Snapchat) google needs to revive this. The UI is from 3-4 years ago. This could work incredibly well with google camera, now, and search. It could be useful when on the go to take a pic to learn about something than typing or talking to your phone (like a weirdo when using voice search sometimes) Please update!
Works just fine So far I have not really put this app to the test, but it seems to work pretty good on my phone (Nexus 5X). The only complaint I can come up with is that the image gets flipped when the content is being scanned, but som far this has not been represented in the output. Overall maybe not the most useful app, but a cool proof of concept and fun to use.
Great Googly Goggles Batman!! Well, it takes a bit of playing around to get your goggles working. Once you've got the hang of it, the worlds at your fingertips! Help tips suck!! So here are some of my own. 1. Unlike Gremlins, Google Goggles LOVE bright light. Go outside or power your camera's flashlight before attempting to take a scan. 2. Skip a wide angle pic at first & see if you can get any writing on the object, male, model, serial #.
Doesn't work at all! I tried many pictures of different items. Simple items I knew pictures existed online. Results were not even close. It's such a great idea and I would think if anyone could make it work it would be Google with the large searchable index they have. I've tried this app a few times since it came out. On different phones and better cameras on the phone. I thought maybe they would perfect it or it was my devices. I didn't want to rate badly until I'd given it the benefit of the doubt. No doubt now!
