Google Gobbles Plink for Future Goggles Integration
Plink, one of the winners of the second Android Developers Challenge is only too pleased to announce today that they’ve been acquired by Google. Their app works remarkably similar to Google Goggles – Snap a picture of some artwork or painting with your phone get back wikipedia-like results. Users can also order posters of said artwork. As an Android-only application, it’s a great title to show off to your iPhone-toting friends. For now, Plinkart will still be available as a download in the Android Market. Going forward, updates to their app will cease as the focus shifts to Google Goggles. We conducted an interview with PlinkArt back in December for those of you who’d like to learn more!
