Google Goggles Coming to the iPhone
By on August 24th, 2010

Google Goggles is one of those few awesome Android apps which aren’t available on the iOS platform. Google Goggles is an image recognition based search engine which allows you to capture images and then use those images as queries to obtain search results.

It is currently available only on Android, but Google had announced that it was working to get it on iPhones and Blackberrys. Today, David Petrou, Google Goggles Project Lead announced at a conference at Stanford University that Google plans to launch a version of Goggles for the iOS platform by the end of 2010.

Using Google Goggles, you can search for text, landmarks, books, contact info, artwork, places, wine, logos and barcodes. Just whip out your phone, take an image of whatever you want to search and Goggles will provide you with related information. It’s surprisingly accurate and provides excellent results.
