What's New+ A new look to go with the new iOS 7!
+ Fix for some customers who were unable to restore or purchase languages due to an unresponsive Languages screen.
+ Fix a few crashes on iOS 7.
App DescriptionSee the world in your language: instantly translate printed words using your built-in video camera, in real time! (PLEASE NOTE: language packs must be purchased separately from within the app.)
Buy language pairs using in-app purchase:
+ English ⇆ Portuguese
+ English ⇆ German
+ English ⇆ Italian
+ English ⇆ French
+ English ⇆ Spanish
Try out the included modes first so you can see the technology in action:
- Reverse Words (spell all words backwards)
- Erase Words (digital white-out)
Word Lens gives you translation on the go:
- NO NETWORK required - results appear immediately on your video screen when you need it, anywhere in the world.
- Easy to use, like the regular camera.
- Also look up translations by typing them in.
Get the best quality out of your translations:
- Best used on clearly printed text (e.g. signs, menus).
- Does NOT recognize handwriting or stylized fonts.
- It's not perfect, but you can get the general meaning!
- Keep text in focus by holding it at least one hand-length away
(or even further for iPod and iPad owners).
iOS device support:
*** iPhone 3gs and old iPod Touch do not have zoom or flash light features.
*** old iPod Touch and iPad 2 cameras do not have auto-focus feature, which will result in reduced translation quality.
