The new Goggles 1.3 client for Android has improved its scanning capability and now scans barcodes almost instantly. All versions of Goggles can now recognize print ads in popular magazines and newspapers and then search for matches to provide more information.

Google Goggles is also now available in the Google Mobile App for iPhone and iPad.
