The Google Goggles app for Android has been updated to version 1.8, with a couple of improvements for continuous mode -- that's the mode where Goggles continues to scan on-the-fly without requiring you to take a snapshot. Firstly, the speed barcode recognition in continuous mode has been increased twofold. And selected, recognized objects in continuous mode are now saved to your search history, assuming you've got that enabled in the settings page.
Goggles, if you're unfamiliar with it, uses Google's databases to recognize logos, products, works of art and other images through your Android device's camera. If you've yet to give it a whirl, you can find the Google Play Store link after the break.
