Google Goggles

Google Googles

Google Goggles is an image recognition tool created by Google Inc. which runs on both iPhone and Android devices. This augmented reality app uses image recognition technology to recognise objects and return relevant search results.

For example, this app can be used to identify products, famous landmarks, storefronts, artwork, and popular images found online. There's no need to type or speak your query - all you have to do is open the app, snap a picture, and wait for your search results.

Verdict:

Google Goggles is a truly innovative app which helps you immediately locate information about pictures. It does not work particularly well with pictures of apparel, animals or furniture.
