I also have TapTapSee and it's amazing. Accidentally I took a picture of myself and it said "picture of yellow pullover". At the time I was wearing a yellow sweatshirt. I also wanted to know what kind of soup I was going to have. When I took the picture, at first it said, "picture of a blue can", then when I took another picture, it said "picture of Progresso chicken soup can". You have to finagle it some before you get a full "picture" no pun intended, of what you're taking. I took a picture of my Bluetooth keyboard and it told me that it was a picture of a computer keyboard. Enjoy the app!

> One done, you just point it at something and double-tap the screen. It’ll tell you it has snapped a picture (“Photo 5 taken,” or something similar) and then, a few seconds later, it’ll read out the result. I pointed it at my legs, as any good, lazy blogger is bound to do with a new camera app, and the app said “blue jeans.” I tried it with my iPhone (“Apple iPhone”), and a ceiling lamp (“hanging lamp”).
