Use a Photo Instead of a Search Word With CamFind

Total Score:  29.5

CamFind allows you to take a photo of something to find out more about it.  That sounds simple when you try an object like an iPod.  You get the expected results, what it is, where you can buy it (relative to where you are) , product reviews and general info.  That is impressive, but nearly as impressive as taking a picture of a flower or a building around you and having it respond, fairly quickly, with everything you would want to know about it.  CamFind delivers amazing results and is likely to settle a bar bet or two.  Continue reading “Use a Photo Instead of a Search Word With CamFind”
