Google Goggles coming to iPhone

Move would see image recognition app move out of its Android home for first time.

Google Goggles is coming to the iPhone. That’s the word direct from Google Goggles Project Manager Shailesh Nalawadi, who has told an augmented reality conference that the image recognition app will hit Apple’s iOS ‘soon’.

It’s a big move for the niche app, which lets you search for details on objects just by taking pictures of them. Goggles recently got an update which let it recognise and search for images of text as well.

Nalawadi also said that Google was looking to open up Goggles to APIs by the end of 2010, meaning it could be used in different apps for Android and, potentially, the iPhone.

This is all subject to Apple giving Goggles the green light, but with Steve Jobs claiming at WWDC last night that it approves 95 per cent of apps that are submitted, it’d be hard to see why this wouldn’t get the go ahead.
