According to an announcement last week, Google has purchased Quest Visual the company that made Word Lens ( wordlens.com ), an amazing instant translation app & for a limited time has made it free to download from the Google Play store.
What's cool is it also works with Google Glass.
Quest Visual is joining Google!
By joining Google, we can incorporate Quest Visual's technology into Google Translate's broad language coverage and translation capabilities in the future.
Google Acquires Quest Visual and its (Awesome) Word Lens Translating App from PCmag
Google has acquired Quest Visual for an undisclosed amount. In doing so, the company has picked up a means for augmenting its translation capabilities in Android and Google Glass, in addition to bolstering its own Google Translate service with Quest Visual's eye-catching technology. goo.gl/94Wjo3

To be fair, (in my personal experience), I found that I loved using Google as a shopping aid, but I never used the standalone app... Why bother when I just fire up the Google Search app (same single app I would use for a bunch of other things) and use the integrated web-app instead... Same information, 1 less app cluttering up the springboard, makes perfect sense to me.
If you used the standalone app a lot, that's a shame for you, but Google clearly found that not that many other people used it over and above the web app. Cut the clutter and funnel into the search app/engine.
