Hi Aedan

I don't want to hijack the original post from Alistair.  I just downloaded
it out of curiosity, and think it's great.  We even photographed money, the
denomination of which it identified correctly, so there are some really good
uses for it apart from the laughs! (smile).


Kind regards,

Hi Jackie
Downloaded it and installed it, no problem. Tried it out in my sittingroom
where I have the laptop and brought a few laughs as I found my couch, flat
screen and bookcase and fireplace. Very impressed. It took a longer time to
decode my kitchen, probably more complex picture. Still it got my steel sink
and cupboard doors!
Brilliant
Thanks Jackie. 
Kind regards
Aedan.

Hi Aedan

Double-tap to open CamFind once you have downloaded it, then go to Take
Picture, and double-tap.  You will hear a sound that accompanies the flash
on your device taking a photo of the object in question.  VoiceOver will
report what has been found, and you can flick left or right to examine the
various pieces of information.  I had to really laugh yesterday when I took
a picture of the leggings I was wearing to see what it came up with.  It
reported they were dark blue, and then offered me fabrics that I might be
interested in that seemed to coincide with what it saw.  It did the same
sort of thing with our Bumble, telling me her breed, and offering me various
links I could use for further information about German Shepherds and the
like.

You have a History button, where you can clear all the pictures you have
taken.  It claims to be a barcode scanner, but the trick of that would be
locating the barcode on a product.  I think you can name things yourself as
well, though I haven't messed around with it enough yet as I have lots of
other things on the go to review and evaluate.

I wonder if, like TapTapSee, it will be a paid-for app eventually?  It's
good though, have a play!

Hi Jackie,
I am interested in this app as well. I am a nubie to IPhone, just got it at
Christmas. I recently got the overlay with Braille dots for the keyboard and
other important points from the U.S. Works fine. How does Camfind work?
Kind regards
Aedan.

Hi Philip

Not Alistair, but the app is called CamFind, so just type that in the Play
Store search field, and you should be good to go.

Personally, I think this app is better than TapTapSee, I have got a lot out
of it so far.

Hello Steve, Jackie, Alistair and Other Members,

I notice that you all have been discussing about this wonderful application
that Jackie Brown said she used it to take pictures of her dog, clothes and
other items.
Please, what is the name of this app and where can I download it from?
I am still learning to find my way round Samson Galaxy S3.
Please, can Alistair repost his article on this app to me?

My Email is:
poisiaka@xxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks!

Philip
