“We were looking for an image recognition solution that would enable users to easily scan print content, with API-based flexibility and the additional goal of reducing the app size.

Ultimately, Shazam chose to implement Catchoom’s CraftAR solution, which has enabled our users to identify and unlock campaigns almost instantly and with ease, while maintaining great performance and keeping the app binary size to a minimum“.
