What's New in Version 5.3.1
Not bad but can be better
I am looking for an app that could do Thai OCR, which it seems that most apps doesn't have it or you have to paid for it, like this app. So I paid the $0.99 and tried it out. The "scan" mode doesn't work too well I think, you have to hold your phone still which is annoying. When tap on the "camera," it takes a while to get to the camera (I always wonder if it is frozen or going crash but I just have to wait.), from there you can get to the photo album. It would be nice if I could get to the album without going into the camera mode first, and it would be even nicer if it doesn't take so long to get the camera mode ready. As far as the Thai OCR, I took a picture of some words I found on the Internet. Somehow it extracted extra characters on my 2 attempts (different words), but I could just edit it. Although this app work fine, I would still get other OCR apps along with this because there are other app that has free OCR for many other languages, like Japanese which I would have to paid another $0.99 in this app. The translation comes from Bing or Google which I prefer. So overall, I am happy with is app. I hope the developer will continue to improve it.
Translates basic things ok. Longer texts that are copied and pasted seem to be too much for it to handle. The optical scanner costs $.99 and doesn't work very well. Not worth the money for add on.
Mic doesn't work
I don't need a translator, I need to know how to say a foreign word and this app shuts down when the mic is clicked on.
