Customer Reviews

Biased toward food translations

(Only used Chinese option) In general, it works very well. The live mode is an especially nice feature. However, the recognition is biased toward providing translations for food items. It does recognize basic items like "street", "hotel", "reservation", "man", etc, as well as numbers, but specific names of places are left untranslated (i.e., you can't really read a map with it).

Awesome OCR

Works great in live mode. The in-image replacement mode is clunky and not useful and mostly a gimmick so I don't use it, but the regular mode makes up for it. I wish I could click through to Pleco though since the translations aren't always that great. It's an OCR app, not a comprehensive dictionary. Pleco integration would make it awesome.

Taste like Chicken

Must have for China. Knowing what I can order has greatly improved my experience in China. Gives me the confidence to order many more dishes and ends up being a good conversation piece. Thanks!
