App crashes as soon as it gives me search results. Even if I click on the results, the web page disappears as well. Plus I have to be super fast to be able to click on the results before they disappear. So far, I am not fast enough to actually see or copy/paste the results so I can open them in another web app. Have reported the problem but no answer so far. Bummer.

vLove it! When I first tried this a couple years ago, it definitely needed some work. Most of the things I tried searching for just were not in the database. Fast forward two years and what a difference! Most everything I look for (vintage estate items to value and price) have several results. Very rarely now, ( less than 5 % of the time) does it come up empty. The only issue I've had is more of a bug in the app issue where it will search for part of the picture which ends up way off base.

This is a very nice way to search online for unusual items that you can't name, or forget what they're called. Just place the item by itself with a plain background and capture it with lens, just like you were taking a smartphone photo. Then wait a moment and let it search. I'm having FUN! It's very addictive and it's really helping me find similar items to whatever I point at, whether in a catalog or in person. Also superb for price comparison.
