Not worth it
I just returned from 2 weeks in Europe. Had purchased this app several months ago for language assistance. It was completely useless. The standard phrases determined by the app to be most useful did nothing for me. Especially by the time I found them. It is not like a dictionary so in addition to this app, you will need one. For instance; I wanted to buy Ice at a grocery in France but that word doesn't exist in this. Luckily, I had also downloaded the google translate free app - it does the same thing as far as say the word(s) for you to get the sound. But it was much easier to use in a pinch. It also had the camera feature as well as writing a word for searching. Much more useful! Don't waste your money on this one.
This app is not helpful. Requires In-app purchases, which are already annoying, but that it doesn't even tell you about until you're already offline is what makes it a failure.
