It's a decent app. It has its trouble recognizing stuff half the time, giving only things with vague color schemes as results, but I'm going to chalk it up to the technology not being as advanced as it could be, maybe bc of the budget. You used to be able to select text quite easily but they have removed it unless it is translated or the text is recognized in the original language, which it has gotten worse at :/ It was really useful and kinda bummed to see it gone.

Frankly, it's among the most proficient apps available today for image search, converting images to text and translating, or finding shopping results from images. The only instances where it tends to falter involve using highly fragmented or out-of-focus images, or when dealing with extremely rare items, such as a painting with an unrecognized signature. Aside from these scenarios, its performance is remarkably accurate. To be honest, it's genuinely impressive.

I can find anything and everything on this app. Clothes, places, antiques, odd things, photos, fake profile pics on FB. Especially useful for searching item descriptions when I don't know what to call something for my online sales. I simply take a photo and search it with LENS. Works flawlessly. Some items I want to buy are so expensive but I search the photo and it shows me multiple identical or close to items for sale across the Internet for a tenth of the price most times. Love it!!
