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!
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
