Although it doesn't always recognize what I'm searching for it still does a pretty spectacular job of doing a variety of things very well. The ONLY functionality that I still really, really, really, REALLY-REALLY miss in Google Images search from the days of yore (which could be assimilated into this current iteration) is the ability to define parameters to seek hi-res imagery as well as being able to filter images by category for example, displaying them according to their file size, etc.

I am very impressed with how quickly the app is able to read pictures of text and the accuracy of the text. By far the best free text to speech app I have tried. It has made reading small physical text easier for me as a person with VI. The other features are also very cool. The only reason I'm not giving the app 5 stars is because the reading speed in the app is too slow. On my Android S8 phone changing the speech rate setting, as has been suggested in Google's help center, does nothing.

I LOVE this app! I have had zero issues with it and no ads. Correctly identifies plants I know, test, and unknown. When the ID is displayed you'll know immediately it's the correct one. If not, take pix from a different angle. Many, many more times than not the app is correct. I love it and recommend it to anyone who, like me loves plants and learning about them. Highly recommend this ap.
