This app has provided a lot of help in my studies for about 3 years! The only problems I've had were with this new UI change. It's easy to go to the history, change mode, etc., but it's a bit of a struggle to get to the handwriting input if I use the split-screen mode. The only way I can get it is by opening the keyboard and immediately hitting the button up top. It's an irritating toss-up as to if it works. I would just like an extra button to go straight into HWI, please.

The new interface is clunky and hard to use. I tried to deal but it's impossible to see your translation and original text side by side or to only translate portion or single word of something. The translation floats over what you're looking at, completely blocking it. Lens is a mediocre solution. Scan function could have used improvements, but this is the wrong direction. It's also a pain to find the handwriting tool, now. It used to be front and center where it was needed. Sad.

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?? added 12/16.... STOP changing the text I typed in !!!!
