Works flawlessly on my Infuse 4g, but is problematic on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Specifically, Snapshot mode is massively washed out (over-exposed)... have to touch Back button and then Snapshot again, and THEN it's okay. Strangely, Continuous mode is perfect. One it's working though, it works great (and has always been perfect on the Infuse). I use it for QR codes, billboards, photographs, foreign language signs, etc. Keep up the good work and just fix this last remaining issue.

It really is just useless! Lol

Take a snapshot of Mickey Mouse. Shows Japanese ppl! All sorts of stuff I tried, but time after time it comes up with the most odd search results its laughable. 1 star just for.making me laugh in disbelief! Sorry Google, its a F.A I.L.

Pretty Cool

If you are looking for it, GoogleGoggle it and it will quickly return with info of what it is or where to find it. To test it, we took a snapshot of a SoBe bottle and it returned w/ the following - Logo: w/ info and site to SoBe; Text: SoBe WaterWater search and Image: for the letters So and B graphics. So pretty useful. The only real issue we had was taking a snapshot of a photo or image on a TV or PC - the return response was usually Similar Images (No Objects Recognized) It also has the capability to crop a snapshot, if you take a large photo but are attempting to locate something specific. Next is faces - just to see what it will find. Fun, Fun, Fun
