Cheating with Google Goggles

After much delay I decided to download the latest version of Goggle’s Goggles.The Application is simple enough to use,with a handy tutorial telling you the do’s and don’ts, can’ts and won’ts.

Most of us are familiar with Goggle’s ability to direct you to book reviews and prices with just  a snapshot.

Google Goggles does have its limitations, and these are outlined in the handy little tutorial that comes with the application.

It’s been a while since I tried my hand at Sudoku, and my abilities with the pen and paper had clearly waned. So I decided to use Goggles to give me a helping hand.

The app recognised most of the numbers ,but even after multiple attempts I wasn’t able to get the application to register all the number on the sudoku grid.

Nevertheless, the application went ahead and solved the puzzle for me.

Well it kinda worked, won't be winning any prizes though

In all Google Goggles is a cool fun application to have on your phone. It’ll definitely keep you entertained whether it works accurately or not.

The Google Mobile Blog actually has a video of the app solving a Sudoku puzzle, check it out below:

You can download it by searching for Goggles on Android Market, and it’s also available on the Google Mobile App for iOS.
