Much improved


My previous problems were addressed nicely. I like the ui a lot better now and am impressed by how the app lets you know you can swipe to delete (rather than the way it did before).

Google translate is very good too, but in my opinion Yandex translator has a slight edge. I enjoyed the fact that they maintained compatibility with my first model iPad long after Apple and Google dropped support. Super product Yandex development team!

Worse not better

The modification you made for picture to text is horrible. When it doesn’t translate properly there is no way to select each word. You can only select the words it understands.
