Amazed at the searching and matching ability of this app. MUCH thought and time went into the creation of these technologies, only possible through countless hours of meticulous, legitimate human input. Searching for and finding an exact match is a fairly simple process--the software simply takes an image of an item and matches it to all other exact items. But for a computer to find items which are "similair" to a human mind is incredibly complex. Very well done! Thank you!

I love Google lense! One quick picture of whatever it is you want to "Google" and your results instantly pop up. The possibilities are endless when it comes to looking things up. I have taken pictures of things as tiny as a catapillar, and even rare old coins that were a little hard to read. But I have yet to be disappointed. 😁

I use this app to identify photos, not so much things in the field. I take lots of photos and foreign gardens, and many of the flowers are unfamiliar to me. This is allowed me to identify most of them. I've also found it useful for identifying specific buildings and different locations. Since the image doesn't change in a photo, I don't have problems as it changing the focus. I highly recommend this app!
