Very good app The app is very good with printed characters. It does have some issues with written characters. Overall the app is very good, but needs to have access to Wi-Fi in order to work. If you are traveling I highly recommend getting the upgrade for offline use. The free version only allows a few translations per day
Waste of money In Japan and in desperation, I paid for the upgraded version. It was helpful perhaps one use in twenty tries. Mostly, it either said it was unable to translate, or provided amusing gibberish. Brilliant idea for an app, though. Hope someone creates one that works.
Why new permissions are needed? A great app, but last version asked for unnecessary permissions: gather location, prevents device from sleeping, find other accounts in my device and more. Not sure why a translation app need it. I'll correct back to higher review when it is fixed.
Needs a few bugs ironed out It works when needed which is good but needs a few updates to add new characters especially Japanese. I use it to translate my car stereo but it doesn't always see the characters due to the contrast and zoom focus. I use a Galaxy S7 Edge.
Complete waste of money and time Do not waste your time getting this app. Doesn't work in most cases and it also translates poorly.
I wanted it to work. I could read simple katakana and the app had trouble translated even that. Got different results each time too. Maybe it only works on menus and street signs. Who knows? Hope it gets better. I'll continue to play around with it until it does.
- Horizontal translation mode for longer translations
- Photo translation for more accurate translations
- New and improved UI
- Crash and bug fixes
