iOS Application, CamFind, Surpasses 500,000 Download Benchmark

The free visual search application for iOS, CamFind, has surpassed 500,000 downloads this week. The application, developed by Image Searcher, Inc., was released less than four months ago and has already seen more success than a lot of apps in the iTunes store. 

The application, which has a 4.5 out of 5 star rating in the app store, is designed to help you point, shoot, and discover information you might not have known about the object.

It’s simple; basically you open the application and click to take a picture of an object. It can be anything from a Starbucks cup to a painting. The app then uses visual search technology and tells you what the items are that appear in the image and it can even tell you where to buy them.

Additionally, the application will give you Internet search results based on the item, find similar images, give you price comparisons, give you online shopping suggestions, and even send you a list of movie trailers if possible.

One of the greatest things about the application is that it can be translated into multiple languages allowing people from all over the globe to take advantage of the app. Due to its easy of use and flexibility, its no wonder the application has seen so much success. According to the CEO of Image Searcher, Inc., Dominik Mazur, more is coming.

“We feel proud to have reached the half a million downloads milestone only several months after launching CamFind,” said Mazur. “Our next immediate sep is to raise venture capital funds so we can make our mobile search technology ubiquitous, develop an Android version, and bring CamFind to the masses in more countries.”

Mazur added that he plans on making the application the one stop shop for users to “conduct photo, voice, and text searches.”
