This is a great app- have found almost every single thing ive ever looked up and i come up with some random stuff to look up! Still like it as of 4/9/23 but am getting really irritated with the part at the bottom of the screen where it asks if it was helpful and wants a rating. That takes up too much room and doesnt clear off the screen. Its in the way!

The Google Lens app has exceeded my expectations of a photo based search engine. From my experience with this app at the time of release up to now, is a night and day difference. At first it felt sluggish and in a sort of primate stage. Now it has advanced far ahead of where it should be. I used it on my dog to see if it would even get close. It was exactly right. So I used it on a car a pretty good distance away and immediately got the make model and exact year. 10/10 stars if I could!!

I keep getting random items from family and have no idea what they are. Or while junkin' I'll find something odd and interesting that even the shop doesn't know what it is. This saves so much time. I'm loving this so much. Having the ability to figure out what some obscure item is quickly and without a lot of headache is impressive and so handy. For me, it's been roughly 85% accurate and it seems to still be learning.
