Google releasing 'Goggles' for iPhone

Google releasing 'Goggles' for iPhone Google has confirmed today that their impressive image recognition app Goggles will soon be made available on the Apple iPhone.
Goggles has been available to Android 1.6+ users for a few months now.

iPhone users have been stuck with a similar app dubbed oMoby, but reviewers agree the software is slow and inaccurate.

Google recently updated Goggles to support text recognition and text translation, but that part of the software is still very buggy.

Regardless, as Goggles continues to update, it is best to see it on as many devices as possible, so feedback can come from a wider market.
