Google Goggles for iPhone

Google Mobile App for iPhone started to become a bloated app, just like Google Toolbar. Instead of developing new applications, Google adds extra features to the Google Mobile App.

The latest new feature added to the application is Google Goggles, a visual search tool that helps you identify objects in a picture. "Computer vision is a hard problem and Google Goggles is still a Labs product. It works well for things such as landmarks, logos and the covers of books, DVDs and games. However, it doesn't yet work for some things you might want to try like animals, plants or food," explains Google.

Google Goggles is available in the Google Mobile App if you use an iPhone 3GS running iOS 4 or an iPhone 4. Goggles is also a standalone Android application.

    1. That's a really vague question and I don't see how it relates to this post.

  6. We are talking about Google Goggles here and I think his comment is very relevant here. We are talking about a new revolutionary search option. You have heard the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words, yes? Well what if you had a picture of someone and you wanted to know if that picture was anywhere on the Internet? And if so, where and what information was attached to it? I had clicked on the comment hoping that there was an inteligent answer to his question, because I happen to have a iPhone 3GS with a picture I wish to do a search on. But like it says above, Google Goggles is still in its infancy in developing in the LAB.
