Google has announced that its previously Android-only Google Lens feature is now rolling out to iOS users who have the Google Photos app installed.
First unveiled last year at the Google I/O 2017 conference, Google Lens uses the company’s image recognition and machine learning algorithms to identify the subjects of photos and videos and present additional helpful actions and information to the user.
For example, if you take a picture of a business card, Google Lens will offer to save the phone number or address to one of your contacts. Similarly, taking a photo of a book, landmark, building, painting, plant or animal can throw up an option to view more details about the picture’s subject.
A few things to note: Currently Google Lens only works if your device’s language is set to English, and you’re running the latest version (3.15) of Google Photos. You can check what version you’re running in the app’s settings – tap the cog icon and select “About Google Photos” in the menu. Also note that your Google Lens activity is saved to your Google Account if you have Web & App Activity turned on.
Starting today and rolling out over the next week, those of you on iOS can try the preview of Google Lens to quickly take action from a photo or discover more about the world around you. Make sure you have the latest version (3.15) of the app.https://t.co/Ni6MwEh1bu pic.twitter.com/UyIkwAP3i9

If you still don’t see the Google Lens icon when viewing individual photos or videos, it’s likely the feature hasn’t reached your region yet. Google says the update is being released in batches and all devices should receive it soon.

Over the last few years, we saw some really nice games get discounts. At first it was just Darkest Dungeon [$ 4.99 (HD)] and The Witness [$ 9.99] being quite heavily discounted. Soon after, more games started popping up like Gorogoa [$ 4.99] that sees its first discount ever on iOS and the likes of Thumper [$ 3.99] and more. For a change, I don’t own everything that’s discounted in the list below and while this is no coincidence, as of this writing, there doesn’t seem to be a feature up on the App Store for this big title sale.
From the discounts, Darkest Dungeon is an absolute no brainer at just $ 0.99 which is less than what the cheapest DLC costs on other platforms. We’ve written about just about every game that has been discounted as well like how great The Witness is on iOS and even how much fun Thumper is in its touch conversion. Here’s the full list of games discounted on the App Store (some discounts are still rolling out) in this seemingly big indie sale:
Bridge Constructor Portal [$ 4.99]
Darkest Dungeon: Tablet Edition [$ 4.99 (HD)]
FROST [$ 4.99]
Gorogoa [$ 4.99]
Iron Marines [$ 2.99]
Mini Metro [$ 2.99]
Milkmaid of the Milkyway [$ 1.99]
The Witness [$ 9.99]
Thumper: Pocket Edition [$ 3.99]
Multiple reports have converged around the idea that Apple will introduce three new iPhone models this fall — a revamped 5.8-inch iPhone X, a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone model, and a much larger, 6.5-inch OLED iPhone model dubbed iPhone X Plus — all of which will allegedly flaunt advanced, Face ID technology and iPhone X styling.

The officially-discontinued Verizon Wear24 smartwatch has received another price cut, bringing it down to $ 50. It’s listed on TechRabbit’s website for $ 99.99, but the tag comes down to $ 49.99 upon using the coupon code TRWEAR50 at checkout. That, if you compare, is a whopping $ 300 discount given that the watch carried a launch price tag of $ 350. Available color options include silver, black, or rose gold. No word on when the deal ends. For more info, head to the Source link below. Source | Via

One of the fun things about mobile is the wide variety of silly ideas people come up with for games. And just when you think you’ve seen it all something like Meat Cannon Golf comes along and raises the bar for absurdity in game ideas. So it’s a golfing game, obviously, but instead of using the standard wood and iron clubs we all know and love, or those tiny little white balls which are so easy to lose, you’ll be firing various types of meats from a cannon trying to get that hunk of meat to land into a hole in as few “strokes” as possible. Yep. Check out this early look at one of the holes that will be in Meat Cannon Golf.
So yeah, this is a thing. If you’re weird like me and are very intrigued by the idea of Meat Cannon Golf, you can actually head over to the game’s forum thread and sign up for potential beta testing for both iOS and Android platforms. There’s also some pretty great animated gifs and additional video clips in that thread that more looks at this wacky game, and if you’re not really interested in testing but you’re still interested in the game you can just sign up on the Meat Cannon Golf official website to get notified when the game launches.
The surprise release of Ace Attorney Investigations last week caps off a strong push by Capcom over the last couple of years to get just about every entry in the series onto mobile devices. The mobile ports have been excellent, offering crisp, high-resolution versions of the DS and 3DS cult hits. On top of that, they’ve been coming frequently enough that you might find yourself falling a little behind on picking them up, in fact. If that’s you, you’re in luck. To celebrate the release of the latest game, Capcom has cut the price of every last Ace Attorney game on the App Store and Google Play. This limited time sale is your chance to catch up on these great courtroom adventure games.
If you’re using Google Play with an Android device, it’s simple enough. All four of the titles available on Android have had their up-front price tag reduced to $ 11.99. On iOS, the games are sold with a slightly different structure. They usually charge $ 0.99 for the first episode, then sell the rest of the episodes a la carte or in one big package through IAP. What Capcom has done for this sale is to drop the initial episode’s price to free, and reduced the cost of the IAP to unlock the full game for each. Prices are as follows, in US dollars:
- Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD [Free] (Full Unlock $ 9.99)
- Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney [Free] (Full Unlock $ 11.99)
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies [Free] (Full Unlock $ 11.99)
- Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice [Free] (Full Unlock $ 11.99)
- Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth [Free] (Full Unlock $ 11.99)
Those are really great prices for some really awesome games. I should note that while Capcom likes to err on the side of caution in its App Store descriptions and only claim support for the latest iOS version that was available when each app was last updated, all of the games apparently still work on iOS 11. It has also been pretty good about keeping them working, so I doubt they’ll be abandoned anytime soon. It’s uncertain how long this sale will go on for, so as usual you’d best grab what you want as soon as possible.
