In December Google Goggles was released for Android. The feature allowed users to search in the Google Maps for Mobile by using a picture they took on their mobile device. It highlights recognized objects and then all you have to do is click on it to find out more information. Also, it can help with more relevant local search results by using the pictures as landmarks. Today, Google announces that Goggles is available for the iPhone!
Google Mobile’s blog does warn that since “computer vision” is difficult that it’s still a Labs product and that they will continue to work on it to make it work better. Google Mobile App is in the Apple App Store and users need only downloaded the updated version on their iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 devices. Devices must be running iOS 4 or above and Goggles is only enabled for English-speaking users.
