Have you ever wondered what the name of that piece of art or landmark building is, but don’t have a clue how to look it up? Ever wondered if that barcode on your favorite new gadget might hold the key to finding it cheaper somewhere else? And have you ever travelled to a place where you don’t speak the language, and all the street signs and visual cues have you baffled?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you’re ready for the free Google Goggles app from the Play Store. With the app and your camera on the DROID RAZR MAXX HD by Motorola, you’re ready for all of the above and then some.
Just open the app and snap a pic of signs, menus, and other images you need translated. Google Goggles can read text in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and Turkish, and translate it into other languages. Goggles can also recognize famous landmarks, paintings, and other places by matching the photos you take with Google’s image library database. It even works on rainy days like in the screenshots below.
You can also use the app as a barcode and QR code scanner to get relevant info on products you’re interested in. Get everything from ingredients to points of purchase so you can make informed decisions and save money. You can also add contacts to your phone by scanning their business cards. No more fumbling around trying to remember where you left that card for that promising new lead.
See the world in a whole new way with Google Goggles.
