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
It looks great, but just doesn't work. translating the same piece of text on multiple days yields different results the camera function is SUPER sensitive, to the point that I was unable to hold my phone physically still enough. I tried translating still images to fix this, but I could not get the app to function from a still image at all, even when it (kind of) worked live. I also experienced crashes when trying live translation via camera sometimes I got a remarkably good translation of complex text and it gave me hope, but this was far from the norm I tested the app out against some pre-translated material (some translated literally, some translated by meaning) the unionpay chinese website was translated "kebab, 7 good choices" it translated chairman moa's name on the little red book; but the rest was mainly gibberish about doors, soup, hair etc don't even bother with stylized, blurry, dirty, poorly exposed text The app promises so much, perhaps it needs a "how to" guide to help people get the most of it in it's current form
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.
Almost completely useless. Rarely able to recognize the text properly even after moving and resizing and focusing for several minutes. Less frustrating not knowing what something is compared to using this. I had super high hopes, but it is just miserable.
Upside down on Nexus 5x Google changed camera api for my phone please update app to work with my device. Will definitely but this after update
Its handy to have but only translates one line or a title of a document. Most places in cities have pinyin on the signs. Some what useful but really not a big deal. Could be better.
- Horizontal translation mode for longer translations
- Photo translation for more accurate translations
- New and improved UI
