Ratings and Reviews
Lots of reviewers misinterpreting the app. It's great for traveling to places with high communication barriers (Asia, etc). Has been useful in my trips through Japan and Vietnam. I recommend it to a lot of my friends.
A list, not a dictionary
This is quite a comprehensive list of icons but there are no definitions. I can figure out what many of the icons are depicting, but if I saw some of these on a sign I would have no idea what it was trying to tell me. A short definition would be useful. Probably won't use this app unless definitions are forthcoming.
I wanted this for one reason
to Copy and Paste the icons in texts or iMessages. I'm not sure why the developer(s) didn't make that option available.
When you travel even with language barriers you meet people, make new friends, get phone numbers, and it would be nice to be able to send an icon to someone you sort of know rather than having to ask complete strangers where to find something or how to get somewhere.
Make Copy and Paste an option and I will change my review for sure!
