Counting is easy but if you have to count a lot of things every day it becomes tedious. Of course, there is an app for that and the name leaves no room for the imagination: Count things from photos O CountThings from photos, in English.
While this might sound like one of those trivial apps that abound in Google Play, it really focuses on the professional sector, as a tool for counting large numbers of items in bulk. However, you can try it for free for count some items you have in the house
One, two, three, fourteen
CountThings is a business application and therefore technically not free, although it allows you to test it a bit without paying, by performing a number of objects at home. The idea is that companies use it to count concrete objects
The counts are based on models for a specific object and which determine the object recognition to be performed. The app has a number of ready-made templates, most of them focused on industry and construction, such as bars, bars, tiles, tubes and logs. The idea is that if a business needs to have something specific, they can request a custom template, for a fee, of course.
On more mundane terrain, as an ordinary user, you can use CountThings to count everyday things with your 7-day “free trial”. Basically, it’s something like a trial version where you can go to certain models to verify that the app is working properly.
These demo models include the X on paper, keys on a keyboard, coins, lines on a laptop, COVID-19 vaccine vials and a manual counter. After choosing a template, you take a photo, tap Tell
After counting, the application displays the total and superimpose a number above each element on the photo. It is possible to save this account as an image which is saved on the mobile and you can export it to other applications
As we mentioned, this is an app mainly for businesses and therefore it is not cheap: each model costs from 20 to 105 dollars, with monthly subscriptions of 100 dollars or annual subscriptions of 1000 dollars. It’s a good amount of money, although for those who have to count thousands and thousands of things every day, it can pay off.
