Google Goggles- App Review Nick Vallas

This app is developed by Google Inc. Goggles uses image recognition technology to recognize images and give you search results, all by taking a picture. It identifies products, famous landmarks, logos, storefronts, artwork, and popular images online. It can also translate English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian. Compatible with Android and Apple products.

`Upon first downloading, the app gives you a tutorial on how to use Goggles. You basically take a picture and it translates it into a web search. There are many things that Goggles searches for.

Text- You can take a picture of a foreign language and Goggles gives you a translation of it.

Landmarks- Take a picture of a famous landmark, and the app gives you some information about it.

Books- By taking a picture of a book, it gives you all the basic information about it (author, title, publisher, etc.). Goggles also can send you to the Google store, and gives you some reviews.

Contact Info- Goggles can take a picture of a business card or something and take that information and translate it to your contacts.

Logos- A picture of a logo will send you to the company’s site and other useful information.

Goggles can also solve Sudoku puzzles. These are the features of the app and what it does.
