Great idea, needs some tweaks!

This is a great app and is well worth the price tag! Its very quick with the translations and is rather simple to use. There are a few things I found that if updated would make this app perfect. They are, a little help or information screen at the start of the app the first time you use it basically showing the user how to use the app and how to get the best results. Which brings me onto my second point. The app seemed to read the words a lot better from slightly further away I don't know why but it did! So maybe a hint telling the user to move back if it can't read the word would be good! But as the writing is smaller it's harder to get the word you want translated! So maybe a feature that you press the word that you want translated and it will translate that word! Also the app seemed to struggle with writing on coloured backgrounds, especially yellow text on a blue background! So an improvement in this are would be good as well! Finally it's slightly annoying that you can only translate one word at a time but as the translation is so quick it's not too bad. The ability to search the word on the Internet from the app is a good idea and I think you should defiantly download the app!

Very useful

I have been using this app to read a book in French - my French isn't good enough on its own! In fact, it's so bad I have been reading the entire book through this app! I'm hoping my French will improve and I won't have to look up as many words.

The great thing is the speed at which it can translate words. Just point the camera at the word and it's translated!

A feature I would like would be to have the whole screen showing the view through the camera, but still with the cross hairs for the translation. That way I would be able to see more of the book at the same time. This would make reading easier (although I guess this use - reading everything through the app - isn't what it was originally intended for).

Fab app - point and click to understand the language!

This app just got better as now you can get translations off line. A big plus when abroad as saves on roaming charges. The Spanish-English and French-English have been most helpful for me as travel to both for work a lot. Now act more like a local. Helps a lot!

I had previously reviewed the app saying: This app has become a real boon for me when travelling, which I do a lot for work. The point and click at the word feature is brilliant. It gives really accurate reply, and options and you can click through to view more detail through the links. It covers all of the countries I been to so far. Fab app. Thanks
