Object recognition good; text recognition ok

Firstly, this app is pretty cool and exciting. It’s amazing that someone created such a useful app, and that such technology is becoming available to us. The critical part of this review is this- I tested this app out and found the object recognition to be pretty reliable. The text recognition was less reliable as it couldn’t always read my writing even though I printed it out clearly. Sometimes it was difficult getting the app to read text that surely seemed to be “in the window” but the app “didn’t seem to think so”. Anyway, overall, I think the app is pretty cool and can see it being useful in a pinch, even with these issues.

I travel all over the world

I travel all over the world… I am constantly looking for a translator app that fits best to countries and situations I’m in. Not every app does - not a big deal - I don’t expect that. I work with what is best for the situation I am in. I also alway test the app out before travel so there will be no surprises and delays when I am in country.

I downloaded the free trial and within 10 minutes I am now deleting it and canceling my trial. I tried various languages from Hebrew to English, Russian to English, Spanish to English, French to Hebrew, etc. it did not pick up any text. Not. One. Text.

I attempted it in various lighting situations and with both flat surfaces and curved (such as a bottle) - no text was found in any of my trials. This is the first time with the various apps I’ve tried regarding translation that has been such a failure right out of the box… As I said, it’s disappointing because the idea is amazing… But, I cannot recommend this app.

Thank you for the review. Please make sure you have selected Text mode at the bottom of the screen in order to translate phrases from photos. If this still does not help, we always appreciate if you could reach us at and tell us more about the problems you've faced. Thank you!

Doesn’t work with text going up and down. And the instructions to cancel subscriptions are wrong. 4 hours later and I still haven’t figured out a way to cancel it. Guess they will just give me an auto mated response to visit their support page, which says the same thing. There is no settings to cancel subscriptions in ITunes for apps, and in the actual settings for iTunes and App Store there are only options for auto downloading things. I suggest not getting this app.

Finally figured it out. For those of you who need to cancel the subscription, then you should have gotten an email, from there you can click on “review your subscription.” It takes you to the normal APP STORE app. Yeah, give out false info and make you go through hoops just to get people’s money. Good job.

We are sorry you have to follow this long standard procedure for subscription cancellation. A trial of the Premium subscription serves the purpose of giving a user a firsthand understanding of the app’s full capacity and the pleasure of ads free experience. When you request a trial, you are informed that you have to cancel the subscription before the trial expires if the app is not to your liking. After the expiration, it is understood that you will continue enjoying the Premium features so your account is charged automatically the corresponding fee. Hope for your understanding.
