The Google Mobile app is a free search application from Google that lets you find what you need using your voice, location and now using pictures via Google Goggles. You already know that you can use voice commands to find things with the Google app, but now you can also take pictures of things you see using your iPhone camera and Google will bring up the relevant results. Goggles recognizes things such as landmarks, books, wine, artwork, and logos.
The voice feature of Google Mobile App can understand many languages including American, British, Indian or Australian English accents, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, Polish and Korean. Your local search results can be tailored to your current GPS provided location. The results can be vertically swapped between Google Maps, Images, News, and Shopping, and you always have your search history for quick access to recent lookups.
If you already have the Google Mobile App on your iPhone, just update it to get the new camera icon for Google Googles. Goggles has been a big hit with Android users, and now iPhone owners too can enjoy this cool new search feature. The app can not only find results from pictures of places and products but can even translate text from pictures with legible copy.
Google Goggels (GG) is similar to competitive technologies like Amazon’s SnapTell and Kooaba. Google Mobile App comes as a universal binary that works on both iPad and iPhone, although since the Google Goggles feature is graphically intensive, you have to have either the latest iPhone 4 or an iPhone 3GS for the camera’s pictures to be legible enough to work properly.
