    Simplicity always wins and prevails in the end- that's why I like this app. It's not packed with colorful features, buy it has every and more languages to translate to and from than I could even name, it's quick, efficient, and you get usually exactly what you asked for. Only thing I'd change\ improve is that for some languages- more commonly spoke ones- it will enunciate the word\phrase for you out loud. Too bag it doesn't do that for every language on there.

    Works when I type, spoken translates wrong because it can't tell from know and no.

    What a great tool. Works extremely well at least between Spanish and English.

    It's wonderful for rough approximations of what is being said. For more precise translations I've found that translation to English is more accurate. Therefore, writing in another language requires previous knowledge in other languages.
