Better than nothing and only app that provides tap translation
But could be better. It gets four stars because it works as advertised (though sometimes it is overly sensitive and dodgy), but needs better set-up instructions. None of the links worked on the FAQ for setting it up, and the imbedded instructional video would not run because it was "private." However, I figured out how to set it up: once you download the app, open up settings in the Tap App and select the language you want foreign-language pages translated INTO (not from) [English for me] and then press integration into Safari. Then the app opens Safari and you finish setting up the app there. If all else fails, you can use the app's browser without integration.
Something's wrong here ....
I bought this app with great hopes because there appears to be nothing else like it on the market, but now I see the catch - it only works with certain websites.
I can understand if something is under development and needs time to perfect, but after spending 20 minutes trying to find a contact email for the developer of this site and learning there isn't one, I now realize that the guy who made the app has no confidence in it, or worse yet, has given up on it an just hopes to real in a few more patsies before the app sinks into oblivion.
Do yourself a big favor and do not by this app until you are certain it will work with the language and websites you are using. How can you be certain - you can't so don't risk it!
This app is still a total waste of money because you can't translate links with this program. When you go to the tap-translate bookmark in Safari it tells you to click on the word to see the translation. Well guess what happens if the word is a link...that's right, it takes you to the link instead of translating the word. For real??! This is the biggest waste of money until they can come up with some kind of fix for this. When I am surfing the web most of the things I want translated are links.
