One of the best mobile apps I have used till date is Google Goggles. It allows you to search about things just by taking their pic. It works great and has been able to recognize almost 95% of the books on which i have used it so far. Given the 5% were local language rare books, i can say it worked great.
Google today announced two major addition & one improvement over last version. It can now read barcode better, can return search results for print ads & can play Sudoku….yes, you read it right.
Both Android & iPhone version will have the updates for Print Ad recognition & Sudoku playing capability. Faster barcode reading ability was confirmed only for Android version.
Here is update from Google blog:
Google Goggles 1.3 with improved barcode scanning is available for download in Android Market. Recognition of print ads and Sudoku solver is now enabled for the Google Goggles app on Android, as well as the Goggles component of the Google Mobile App on iPhone.
