Useless app. Can only translate one word at a time and requires several seconds of keeping camera absolutely still to do so. Translating an entire sentence or paragraph would take so long that you would forget the meaning of the first words by the time you got to the last. Keeps no useful record of previously translated words, so you couldn't string together a whole phrase, even if you did have the patience to individually translate each word. App claims to translate a photo of a paragraph, but still only does it one word at a time (you have to tap each word in the photo one at a time to get a translation of that word only). Also, it is only able to correctly recognize about 50% of the words in any photo. Finally, it only works with an Internet connection, so if you only have wifi, you probably won't be able to use it when you need it. I am very sorry I spent my money on this.
