App Reviews

  • Don’t buy!

    By Thisappsucksballs:/
    This app is absolute trash! I bought the paid version and none of the translations are correct. Doesn’t recognize the majority of characters and translates every other word into ‘tuna’ or ‘salmon’ when they are not even fish or food items. Do not waste your money on this terrible attempt at an app!!
  • Horrible!

    By Jimmy neutron is MLG
    I used this and it says THICK HEN for everything! I also pointed it at my paints and it somehow saw OPEN DOOR on my pants -_-
  • Don't use for Japanese

    By Heeyaa
    I was too desperate to find a translator in Tokyo and made the mistake of wasting $6.99 on this useless inferior quality crap before discovering one minute later that Google Translate does it ten times better and for free. If I could just get my $6.99 back I would erase this review, but no refunds exist - conveniently for them I suppose. Make sure your software works before selling it!
  • Great app for traveling

    By HuanAlbert
    Very useful app while in Asia. It comes handy to navigate menus written in Chinese.

    In Japan - This app does not work well, if at all. Google is free and better (but still not great). I didn’t find out until my money was already wasted.
  • Chinese to English

    By RickyRocGod
    Have only used for Chinese but it got me through my first trip to China with very few problems
  • Funny but not useful

    By Kasiagfvsidjjy
    Translated random words into sentence that makes absolutely no sense
  • Awesome app

    By Steve Crago
    I use this app every time I go to China. No need to ask for English menu, as long as you have a good connection:-)
  • Great app!

    By Ryan from RI
    Very awesome, wish I had it when I lived in China!
  • Frustrating for Japanese

    By ClovisKid4321
    I am in Japan and I've tried to use this app for translating Japanese on many occasions. I upgraded to the paid version. The translations are really poor. Many things completely not food related translate into food items. For example, there's "fatty tuna" all over the place. Food items on a menu seem to translate much quicker and seemingly more accurately. Maybe that's where the developers focused their attention? I have used it on some Chinese characters with the Chinese translation, and that seems to occur much more quickly and accurately. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this app except as an emergency back-up to avoid eating anything you'd rather not eat.
