Google Goggles – Mother of all apps!

We have written about Google Goggles before now it is improved. Have a look at the video below.

Google Goggles can be termed easily as the mother of all Android apps! If you ever come across a landmark on your travel or even in your own city, which you do not know anything about it, do not fret. Just take out your Android phone and click a photo of the landmark on Goggles app and you will know everything about it in seconds. Sometimes you will have more information than the expensive local tourist guide. Not just that, if you come across an artwork of Picasa in the client’s meeting place and you have to impress them with an intense knowledge of the painting, you can simply take Goggles’ help by clicking a picture of the art and get to know enough information that will floor your client. Goggles can also be your No.1 travel accessories as it helps you in translate words in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese & Russian. My favorite feature in this app is getting info of the wine and its origin from click of the label on the wine bottle. The app straight away gives you a talking point for the dinner. What else you want from an app?
