It just doesn't work anywhere near being useful! It will give you different results each time even when you are pointing at large printed signs. I am in Japan and looked at a large very clear sign post which was translated as gummy near lips ??? I found that it does need a lot of light to get a reading especially in restaurants and you have to go to settings to turn that on. Maybe they add a menu or small print mode which turns on/off the light automatically (glossy paper and plastic with reflections really throws also it off as well). I didn't fully get to check out every feature as it got tiresome, but a good idea would be to take a snapshot of the image and then work out rather than continually hold it and watch it update (which gave very different results). I hate to give a thumbs down on an app, but when you're travelling in a country, you want it work as advertised!
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
Version 3 on Galaxy Note 4 Took previous version to China and it worked perfectly. I just upgraded to versions 3 on my note 4 and it does not work at all and I cannot go back
Show Stopper bug for Google Nexus 5X Phones. The camera image is inverted and renders the translation useless for this device. Looks promising. Please add Thai to the list of translations.
Have not had a chance to use it China yet Will be going to China soon and thought I'd try this. Seems to work well on most tests that I have tried thus far about 90% accuracy.
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.
