I only use for AUDIO. The camera feature is terrible, but the audio can't be beat by anything else I've found. I do wish it would allow ME to decide when to stop listening. The very short pause time it takes to auto turn off is annoying. Any pause in the speaker's conversation makes it think the speaker is done instead of just thinking of adding emphasis. I end up losing key parts of conversations because the app has decided to start talking to me. EDIT: It got worse on Android.

Overall, the MT has assisted me in understanding foreign writings in blogs and comment sections. However, sometimes the translation is misconstrued or it won't understand English translations of words, at all. Update: This app can no longer distinguish the proper language to translate the original text, and, only provides a handful of correct words per sentence. It's become worthless.

Seems pretty fast but missing the main feature needed. There is no continuous transcribe to another language feature like in Google Translate. So in presentations, speeches, sermons etc there is no way for it to continuously translate what the speaker is saying. It pauses and thus will miss half of what is said. It's more designed for conversations.
