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.
I like it a lot but........ My only issue is that when you scan something you get the info right then but there is no way to go back and look for it later. If you don't remember or write down the info right away you lose it. This would be ok if it was something you can go back and scan again but what if you can't. Or when it says I have new results if I don't open it right away, it's gone. If you guys made it so we could look up our previous searches that would make this app way better!!!
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!
Downhill When Google Goggles first came out, it was revolutionary. It wasnt perfect by no means, but it broke molds and blew minds. Now after revisiting it after a few years, it seems like they have abandoned the project. Deep learning is very tricky. If I were Google I would focus more on the voice recognition and the ability for the AI to hold a decently intelligent conversation. Image recognition would be smoother if the AI knew the context of the picture it was taking.
Amazing Technology, Horrible App It's really cool that you can have it automatically recognize your photos when you take them, but you have at most one opportunity to see them. I get a notification that it recognized one or more photos, and the only way to see them is to click on the notification. If you bring up the app instead, or dismiss the notification, they are gone for good. No history or any other way to see what it recognized. Sometimes clicking the notification doesn't even work. It recently recognized several photos I had recently taken, but I couldn't see any of them. It's more concerned with telling you how great it is without making it actually useful.
Thought maybe it could identify a particular fish... Not only could it not tell me what kind of fish it was, it didn't even recognize it as a fish. I thought maybe it was too hard, so I tried a couple fish even a small child could identify. They were crisp clear pictures shot from the side. This time it couldn't even hazard a guess. At least with the first fish it TRIED to guess. But I honestly didn't expect it to spit out an answer that wasn't even English. I think it was trying to tell me it was a tattoo. In Spanish.
