Visual search app CamFind launches new social features for iOS

Visual search leader CamFind, launches new social features

Camfind

CamFind, a visual search app that allows users to snap pictures of objects in real life using a smartphone recently launched its in-app social feed on iOS.

If you’re not familiar with CamFind, think of it like the Shazam of photos. Say, for example, you come across a new gadget a friend is boasting about and waving around at a party. Simply snap a shot of it and CamFind will identify the object, even going as far as providing relevant links on the web as to where you can buy or research it.

It works with everything. You can identify landmarks or find reviews on a movie just by snapping a shot of a movie poster. You can even take a picture outside of a restaurant and CamFind will provide you with menus and reviews for that particular restaurant. Need to find the closest coffee shop? Easy, take a picture of a coffee cup and the app will spit out locations of the nearest coffee shops. It’s like a real world reverse Google image search in your phone, but better.

 

With CamFind’s new iOS update, users can escape their mediocre lives by sharing the photos they snap with others on the platform. To take it a step further, CamFind added extra functionalities like being able to star images they find interesting, or bookmark the ones they like to check out at a later time.

Here’s some of the newest features:

  • Live Feed: Scan all photos taken with CamFind in real time from users around the world
  • Popular Image Feed: View the most popular images that received the most engagement
  • Engagement Features: Choose to “star” an image to show you’re a fan or “heart” an image to save to your favorites
  • Save To App: Save images taken with CamFind or clear image history

“Since CamFind launched, we’ve proven to have the most accurate visual search technology, with a response provided for 100% of search inquiries,” says CamFind CEO Dominik Mazur in a press release. “Now we are taking CamFind to the next level and making our platform social, allowing users to do more with their photos as well as have the opportunity to interact with other fans of the app.”

CamFind is currently available on iOS and Android and to date has processed over 24 million visual searches.
