Buy it again and again
It works, and I paid for lifetime use. However, the app installs on other devices as the unpaid limited version. So the unlocked iPhone I want to bring to use in China does not have the full version, nor does the iPad I intend on bringing. I have e-mailed the Waygo folks several times and have not heard back about how to utilize the lifetime use on other devices, or if in fact you must pay $7 for every device. I have never heard of an app that requires separate purchases to unlock features on multiple devices.
Living in China I use this app quite often. The real-time menu translations are fast and accurate. It performs exactly as advertised. When my friends see it they wonder how they have survived in China without it. Essential.
Very useful while in China
It helped me tremendously while in China. There are other apps that do the same thing, but most require a data plan or wifi. This works even without data.
