Mobile development start-up Kooaba today announced that its smartphone app of the same name is now available in the US. The application allows users to take pictures of each item in their book, movie, CD, etc. libraries, which are then added to a sophisticated digital database on their phone.

Users simply hold up the piece of media to the camera until the app recognizes it. As soon as the title is confirmed, Kooaba's database will link up all relevant data about the product. Users can also add reviews of the items in their "library," share their collections on Facebook and other online groups, or connect directly with other Kooaba users.

"Typically image recognition services in the U.S. are often narrowly-focused, confusing and limited. With Kooaba, users are in control, deciding how they want to take advantage of the service. We are introducing the first truly social network-driven offering for image recognition and search, creating a visually-based community that enhances the way people view and interact with their favorite media or games. And most of all, it is just plain fun!" said an enthusiastic Herbert Bay, CEO of Kooaba.

The app is available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android phones. A Web-based version of the app is also available at Kooaba.com.
