Appleseed review Appleseed
Google Goggles is an excellent application for identifying iconic landmarks and scanning QR codes. It hasn't seen an update in quite some time and I hope that it hasn't been abandoned. Could you please push out an update to fix bugs and give it a Material Design makeover?
B.Avila A.Avila review B.Avila A.Avila
As much hype as this app initially had at launch, it's completely failed to meet those expectations. 98% of my search results to comon items returned as "unknown." Honestly, it's been much faster & more accurate to use the regular Google, non goggle search engine.
A Google User review A Google User
When Google Goggles first came out, it was revolutionary. It wasnt perfect by no means, but it broke molds and blew minds. Now after revisiting it after a few years, it seems like they have abandoned the project. Deep learning is very tricky. If I were Google I would focus more on the voice recognition and the ability for the AI to hold a decently intelligent conversation. Image recognition would be smoother if the AI knew the context of the picture it was taking.
Chris McCabe review Chris McCabe
Amazing Technology, Horrible App
It's really cool that you can have it automatically recognize your photos when you take them, but you have at most one opportunity to see them. I get a notification that it recognized one or more photos, and the only way to see them is to click on the notification. If you bring up the app instead, or dismiss the notification, they are gone for good. No history or any other way to see what it recognized. Sometimes clicking the notification doesn't even work. It recently recognized several photos I had recently taken, but I couldn't see any of them. It's more concerned with telling you how great it is without making it actually useful.
Tom Low review Tom Low
Nice idea
It's a nice idea being able to search using visual cues. However it doesn't really work very well. It didn't recognise the (well known) products I showed it and struggled to recognise brands. A 250ml bottle of ketchup was recognised as 'Hinze'. Well I can also read that label and it is quicker to type the info in myself - so not very good. If it recognised it as a 250ml bottle of the stuff and showed me where to buy - much better. Until then i'll pass.
Melissa C review Melissa C
Seems like another cool app but the recognition ability can be TOO general and simple. So results are disappointing most of the time. It does better recognition with text than objects. My phone has a decent camera and at some point believed i couldn't take clearer pictures as possible that Goggles cant recognize. Thats not the case. I will wait until it improves.
Malik Rashid review Malik Rashid
Is cool From what I can tell the main benefit of having this app is for shopping. The only issue I have it is that I struggle to find ways to use it, it seems more like a luxury than an essential tool. Maybe because I don't shop. I struggle looking for practical ways to use it other entertainment or information. Perhaps It's not for me. Its completely functional and always works well and surprisingly has never even so much as crashed. I like this app a lot , so I always keep it.
Joel Aikens review Joel Aikens
What exactly is this app supposed to do?
Because right now all it does is occasionally identify text and open up ads on images of famous buildings. Seriously it couldn't even identify the Eiffel Tower and instead returned an ad for a product that uses the tower in its logo. So I figured if it recognized logos it could identify McDonald's logo. Except it didn't. Useless waste of space
Abishek Girish review Abishek Girish
I am an OnePlus 3T user, the app is great with other devices but when concerned with my device, I can find so much trouble in using it. I am unable to read readily taken images and I am forced to take a picture first then upload it from the gallery. It's fine when there is no urgency but very irritant when in a emergency. Hope Google fixes this issue!?
A Google user review A Google user
Great app that has improved with time. When it does manage to focus and scan at the correct depth with good light, it is surprising when you magically find what you need. Also picks up text and can return many results regarding translation, codes, indexes as well as related images or works. There is still much out there that has not been indexed but if it's out there, a good scan will dig it up.
Rachel Green review Rachel Green
This app is a great concept I was really excited when I downloaded it but it just doesn't work properly yet, even for the things they say it can do. Instead of reading barcodes it goes for the text (even when there's barely any to read) can't read text properly either, puts spaces where there aren't any etc. So when you use the search function end up re-typing anyway. Hopefully this will reach it's potential because it could be great, but it's not there yet.
Dan Hunter review Dan Hunter
MotoZ2 12/7/2017 Most Updated Android Version Available I have used this app on many other devices and had no problems with it. However with this phone I cannot seem to "take a picture". As in, I will tap the button and it won't even register I am tapping the screen, while the camera running is fine. I can send video evidence by email to any support staff willing to look into this issue. Thank you very much for your time and effort. -Hunter
Tom review Tom
With pictures everywhere (including fb, IG, and Snapchat) google needs to revive this. The UI is from 3-4 years ago. This could work incredibly well with google camera, now, and search. It could be useful when on the go to take a pic to learn about something than typing or talking to your phone (like a weirdo when using voice search sometimes) Please update!
Bo Willem Woelfert review Bo Willem Woelfert
So far I have not really put this app to the test, but it seems to work pretty good on my phone (Nexus 5X). The only complaint I can come up with is that the image gets flipped when the content is being scanned, but som far this has not been represented in the output. Overall maybe not the most useful app, but a cool proof of concept and fun to use.
Steve Clark review Steve Clark
I tried many pictures of different items. Simple items I knew pictures existed online. Results were not even close. It's such a great idea and I would think if anyone could make it work it would be Google with the large searchable index they have. I've tried this app a few times since it came out. On different phones and better cameras on the phone. I thought maybe they would perfect it or it was my devices. I didn't want to rate badly until I'd given it the benefit of the doubt. No doubt now!
