App no longer in business. Shame.
Since my last review (below 4 stars), it seems this app is no longer working. It is a shame because it was great for language students reading foreign-language materials on the web, who only needed single-word translations from time to time (and not full-page web translations).
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!
Great App, very impressive!
I gave 2 stars for this app couples days ago because some reason it won't work after integrate with safari in occasion.
I'm back because after I update the new IOS6 and the issue fixed!
This is a great app I have been looking for years, now I could truly enjoy web surfing!
