Availability of CamFind app extended to Android


For several years, most of the internet users have been dependent on Google search engine (to a great extent) or other search engines (to a lesser extent) for getting answers to our queries. We have got used to typing queries in the Google search toolbar and click on the search icon to get relevant Google search results. In other words, Google search has become an inseparable part of our lives as it has helped in making things relatively easier for us. Last year, some internet users (especially iOS users) experienced a new innovative way of performing search on objects while trying to get details about them. CamFind app helped to perform search by taking photographs of objects. This visual search engine app that was initially launched only for iOS devices, has now been made available for Android devices since 22nd January'2014.

CamFind app helps to photograph, identify and reveal information about any object, landmark or product through immediate search results along with relevant photo. This app was first available in Apple app store for iOS users from 7th April, 2013. Due to it's uniqueness, this search app was able to achieve tremendous success and a testimony to that was the 1 million plus downloads within first 6 months of it's launch. People were extremely happy with the performance of this app and found it very useful. The hype created by this app made the Android users desperately anticipate it's compatibility with Android in future. Now, the wait of Android users has finally borne fruit as this app is now available for free download on Google Play store. Image Searcher Inc. is the company that has launched this app and also it's sister app called Tap TapSee (for iOS), which is an award winning application for the blind people as well as visually impaired people.

My review and verdict
I downloaded this app from Google Play store for free. With a size of 10 MB, I was able to download this app quickly and it was compatible with my smartphone as I had an Android version above 2.2. I tried out each and every feature mentioned above and was extremely delighted with the user-friendly interface of this app. It really helped me to save time by not having to type any text. Also, in one particular case when the results didn't show the exact product information I was looking for, this app provided me with a list of relevant item images which contained the exact product that I was looking for. It was able to do so with very little information provided from my end i.e. only the photo of a similar product. I will indeed recommend every Android user to check out this wonderful search application and share their feedback over here. I have simply fallen in love with this app!
