So I have a folder on my desktop for stuff to blog about that’s pretty old. The problem is I don’t have a lot of new stuff going on except work and I can’t talk about specifics yet. So perusing through my “blog me” folder (which is what it’s actually called – I’m not proud of it) I was reminded about this app “Word Lens” I downloaded before my trip to Spain.
The app works like this: You hold your phone up to a sign and it translates it for you instantly, no network required . I have to say it’s pretty great.
The grammar might be a little off but it really works.
Of course it’s not perfect. For one thing the app fools you into thinking it’s free only to find the languages are an in-app purchase. And you have to buy each direction of translation. Spanish-to-English and English-to-Spanish are sold separately. So be careful and don’t accidentally buy the language you already know. And Spanish and English are the only languages available so far.
And finally sometimes it’s wrong.
But if you try again…
It’s still wrong but closer.
