    Google Goggles's review

    Published: 2011-05-19, by .

    An image-based search engine based on your camera shots

    • Public search engine
    • Scans properly
    • Video-tutorial
    • Integration with the phonebook, google translator,...
    • It doesn't match results sometimes

    "Camera search"

    Thus, it identifies products, famous landmarks, storefronts artwork, and popular images found online. It matches the image you catch with you camera with Google database in order to give your search results. Likewise, Goggles can translate the text you scan in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. If what you scan is a business card, it will detect the phonenumber and name and you will be able to add a new contact, call or send SMS.

    After type and voice search, image search comes up. But it has to be improved in some points because there are lots of things that it doesn't even recognize. Sometimes, instead of bring you back info, it shows just similar pictures what's useless. Given that it's based on a public search engine, we guess it will work better as the users keep it update.

    Google Goggle is one of the starred apps developed by Google Inc., the official Android Market provider, and the responsible of other indispensable Android apps as Google Books, Google Earth, Gmail or Blogger.

    This is one of those app that is good to have installed in your Android, even if you are not going to use it everyday. But we're pretty sure that ponce in a while you will need it. It isn't the best Google app, but it's still recommendable.

    Doesn't do anything. Doesn't scan, capture button just stays lit when pressed, crop sometimes works sometimes not, doesn't translate like it says it will. Can upload image to be scanned but it never finds anything. App has full permissions:(

    Does not work on my Galaxy 8+. Camera button either does nothing, or just closed the app.

    Camera shutter button does nothing and QR autoscan feature no longer works, rendering app useless.
