  • Disappointed

    By sugarpush
    Doesn’t translate Thai menu’s or road signs ,
  • Dreadful

    By Sic as a brick
    A truly appalling app that uses a dictionary to translate individual words but cannot put them into a coherent sentence. Don’t wast your time.
  • It doesn’t translate when I take photo

  • Horrible translation

    By Anylichka
    It doesn’t translate. I tried to translate from English to Russian and the text doesn’t have any sense.
  • Failure to recognise text

    By Broken Lance
    Failed to recognise printed text in four out of six attempts.
  • Just translated an official government letter in Arabic to English

  • If I could get my money back I would this app is really really poor

    By Sadoslados
    I would not recommend this app it's very poor and in my opinion it's a waste of money
  • Does not fit the bill

    By Xuuuuiibrdtun
    It's not very good for translating books .... I wish there was a preview of how it works to see if it does the job. You can't translate a whole page because it can't focus on print... it just translates the photo of a section and that does not but everything into context . If you try to photo a sentence it's not wide enough to fit it all in for photographing . Frustrating that I'm going to be billed for something that does not fit my needs 😞
  • Wow

  • So poor in Thai translation

    By neil shepperd
    I speak responsible Thai and can read some. I thought this app would improve my Thai but even the simplest words are translated wrong. I would like my money back because it doesn't do what it claims to do.
