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. Justin Daniel – ★★★★★

I like it a lot but…….. My only issue is that when you scan something you get the info right then but there is no way to go back and look for it later. If you don’t remember or write down the info right away you lose it. This would be ok if it was something you can go back and scan again but what if you can’t. Or when it says I have new results if I don’t open it right away, it’s gone. If you guys made it so we could look up our previous searches that would make this app way better!!! Annie Spalsbury – ★★★★★

Doesn’t work at all! 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!

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.

Google goggles I’m quite happy with the app even if I don’t get a answer to all my photos. But dam near. I love this application so much because I learn more and more all the time. I give it a five out of five all day long for the evacuation value and potential to help answer questions about stuff I see everyday that I have no idea of what it is. Take a picture and most of the time I get a Web Link and I learn something new. Grant Legacy – ★★★★★
