Update 9/2022.. the user interface really stinks compared to how it was a year or two ago. Also, the most negative thing about this app is the off-line mode isnt available unless a flag is generated by the OS being in 'Airplane mode'. It will tell you it can't translate because of a lack of a connection, but the instant you put it in the airplane mode, it works. How about triggering the off-line mode instead of the stupid message??

App suddenly quit working after working great for the last 6 months. The error I get is that there's "no connection". However my other apps and browser connect just fine. Yes I have been through all the usual fixes to no avail. Update 10/4 still getting same error. Nothing fixes it. Google is NO help at all. Frustrating since it used to be great!

The update ruined this app. I used to use this all the time for Japanese and it had one of the best translations available. Now the camera reads vertical characters as horizontal if they're too close together and the option to select characters manually by swiping has been broken and replaced by two highlight cursors. If I could rate it lower I would.
