Looking forward to trying out this visual search feature on my iPhone. The better camera in the iPhone 4 has increased the utility of many other scanning and augmented reality apps and I expect this will help with Google Goggles, as well. As the author noted, the updated app has not appeared yet in the Apple App store, but I will download it as soon as it is available. -- Douglas
Almost A Year After It Hit Android, Google Finally Adds Goggles To The iPhone:"One of the biggest downsides of being in the iPhone camp rather than the Android camp is not getting early access to some of the cooler mobile things Google is working on. One of those is Google Goggles, a visual search feature that launched last December for Android. Now, almost a year later, it’s finally here for the iPhone as well.
As they’ve announced on their Google Mobile Blog today, Google has placed Google Goggles for the iPhone as a feature inside of their Google Mobile app on the device. That app, which already allows you to search via text and via voice, now is even more powerful."
