iDentifi is an app that empowers visually impaired individuals to gain more independence in daily tasks like grocery shopping, self-navigating in indoor environments, and reading. It uses artificial intelligence to enable a visually impaired user to click a photo of virtually any object or piece of text, and then speaks aloud a description of the object in an image or dictate any text in the image to the user. Furthermore, all of the app's functionality works in more than 25 languages. Finally, the app features an interface designed with visually impaired users in mind, while also giving users the option to choose from three different modes of object/text recognition as well as how fast they want the app to speak.

Don't use this app!!!!!!
When I turned on voice over... the nightmare started. It took me literally hours before I could get back into my phone. The functions wouldn't work. I couldn't unlock my phone. My phone wouldn't recognize my thumb. I finally read that you need to tap what you want to click on and then double click the same spot when in voiceover mode. AT&T told my to click 3 times so it did not working. Talk about panic attack! So after hours I finally was able to open my phone again. The first thing I did was turn off voiceover and then delete this horrible app.
More limited than i first thought
In reading text, the app can't separate one column of text from another or the left hand page from the right hand page when both pages of an open book are seen by the camera. Also, i found the app won't work at all without an internet connection; a serious limitation and threat to privacy too since images are processed on an external server.
Cool app and a feature request
I've only use the app a couple of times and it seem to do very well describing what I was taking a picture of. It would be nice for a way to have the app repeat what was last spoken.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
