This page gives you pointers to the Features; Documentation that includes the Classes, Members and Methods; the Requirements of your system to use this library; Examples; and finally, Release Notes of our continuous updates.
The library can detect the features supported by the browser and help write web applications with Image Recognition.
Your apps can seamlessly switch between two modes:
The Image Selector:
HTML element that asks the user to select an image from the gallery, OS’s camera (by asking the user to take a picture with the device’s built in camera app) or file system.
The camera Capture:
Open the device’s camera or webcam and show the preview. This mode allows you to perform Cloud Image Recognition in two modes:
- Single shot: Take a picture and search.
- Finder Mode: Send continuous queries to the server until a result is found or the process is stopped programmatically.
You can find documentation for the library here
