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.
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.
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!
