About a year after it debuted on Android (remember when Google released apps on iPhone first?) Google has integrated Goggles into the Google Mobile App for iOS. Goggles is enabled only for English-speaking users, and since it requires an auto-focusing camera it is supported only on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 running iOS 4 or above.
Computer vision is a hard problem and Google Goggles is still a Labs product. It works well for things such as landmarks, logos and the covers of books, DVDs and games. However, it doesn’t yet work for some things you might want to try like animals, plants or food.
Google Mobile App with Google Goggles is now available in the Apple App Store. Just search for “Google Mobile App” and download the latest version – it’s free. It will gradually be appearing in all App Stores around the world starting from today.
