    Sounds similar to a beefed up Google Goggles app? No update to Photos for me yet, but will try to remember to check it out when I get the app update. It sounds like it's not a focus the camera on an object functionality...more of find things in your existing pictures and then learn more from that cropped / selected image?

    That part is still simple. Not sure what you are referring to though, you confused me with that post.

    I do like the part where you can use the Lens feature to take a picture of a business card and then create a new Contact directly from that pic. That's cool. People do still hand out business cards and I manually add them as a Contact when needed, so this will be quicker. In used to have an app that would do that, but they ended up selling that data to a non-friendly foreign government. Oops.
