'Phind' is a visual search app that picks up where digital maps leave off. The app enables users to identify an exact location, landmark or attraction by simply snapping a picture of their surroundings. The advanced technology and smart capabilities behind the app make it easier for users to explore new areas without having to ask or plan in advance.

To enable the app, users simply take a picture of whatever unfamiliar environment they may find themselves in. Phind then uses advanced image recognition technology and data collected from various digital platforms to identify the context of the photo. The clever visual search app will not only provide users with a place's name, but also detailed information about the location or attraction. If the image is of an attraction or business, Phind can also provide helpful tips and reviews, making the app the perfect digital travel companion.
