Aipoly Vision is an object and color recognizer that helps the blind, visually impaired, and color blind understand their surroundings. Simply point your phone at the object of interest and press any of the recognition buttons at the bottom of the screen to turn on the artificial intelligence.
Aipoly Vision will keep running and recognizing objects until you switch to a different mode, or toggle the recognition button.
Aipoly Vision can recognize 1,000 essential items for free, and many more through a subscription.
● Recognize Everything:
Recognize a wide variety of objects at a rate of three times a second. Simply switch on the "General" button and it will start identifying what it sees through the camera. Recognising objects does not require an internet connection.
● Recognize Plants and Animals:
Identify over 2000 species of plants and animals, including dog breeds and bird species. Available through subscription.
● Read Text:
Read text in multiple languages. Once you encounter a sign or document, you can switch to the "read text" button to read it out loud.
● Recognize Currency:
Aipoly Vision can identify currency in USD. More currencies coming soon!
● Recognize Food:
Over 1000 dishes and food items can be recognised by simply waving your phone in front of them.
● Recognize Colors:
Aipoly can tell over 1400 colors apart. The list can also be simplified to a few through the settings if you are unfamiliar with most color names.
For those with VoiceOver switched on, simply access the text above the buttons. For those who are sighted and do not require VoiceOver, you can access the Speaking Voice setting to listen to what the app can see.
● Internet free:
All recognition modes with the exception of text and packaged products work without an internet connection, so they can be used in any situations and in complete privacy.
● Multiple Language Support:
Available in English, Italian, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, and Arabic, depending on your phone's language settings.
● Intelligent Torch:
When Aipoly detects darkness through the camera, it will automatically turn on the torch so you don't have to worry about lighting. When the light is switched on, it will turn the torch off.
Aipoly works on:
iPhone 5S and above
iPad Air and above.
iPad Mini 2 and above.
Aipoly Vision comes with the option to subscribe for a monthly fee to unlock a more varied recognition of plants, animals, and food, and improving the general recognition of objects increasing the number of identifiable items by four times.

A 1-week trial of Aipoly Vision's subscription is available.

Your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, at the subscription price option you have previously selected.
Subscriptions can be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase. There is also a button in-app that take you to these settings. If you cancel after your subscription has activated, you won't be refunded for the remaining active period of the subscription.
Aipoly is not a medical application, nor a substitute for human or canine visual assistants. It will not understand every object that you point it to and will eventually make mistakes on what it sees.

Ratings and Reviews
It needs more work
Great intended app. Hope to see more apps like these to liberate more people in needs. Tried it out around our messy playroom of my SVI daughter's. The app said "tulle" when it's meant to be a doll in a dress made of tulle. It said "maraca" when it was a measuring spoon. And mostly "I am not sure". It did get "floor pattern" when I accidentally swept the phone in front of the carpet, but wouldn't it be more useful if it describes pattern a bit more? And I understand some VI people will be able to use the extra functions when you need to press a button for extra details, it'll be interesting to see how a blind person can be benefited if they ever can. Guess the app can still be useful when you are in a busy environment and trying to find out what's around, except you should only show one single object in front of the camera at one time.
Not good at all
I wanted to tell which was the tv remote and which was the phone and it couldn't even do that. And colour spotting was way out.
What this really needs, is a "correct" button!
What this really needs, is a "correct" button, so when a user points their device at an object they already know, they can tell the app that it identified the object correctly. Perhaps the options could be something like, perfect, almost correct, completely wrong. The Teach Aipoly mode should be toggled in settings, as sometimes users won't always want to teach the app. As soon as I started playing with the app, the first thing I did was point my device at objects I already knew about, in order to test the app. I thought it would be very helpful if I could let the app know it had made a correct identification, which presumably would help the system learn better. As it currently stands, there is no way to let the system know that it has correctly identified an object. Four example, if I point my device at a washing machine, and the app identifies it, I could tell the app that it was correct. If thousands of other users point their devices at washing machines and also confirm a correct identification, the systems degree of certainty would presumably increase, regardless of brand. Washing machines usually look similar, even if they are different makes, Hotpoint or Whirlpool etc. Think of it as positive reinforcement.
