  • Not bad not good

    By Gorgoalmary
    To early to tell. I'm not very impressed. It can't discern between color and object. But I'll keep plugging.
  • Excellent

  • Useless!

    By Gregjp
    Snap a picture of a chair, dresser, table, desk, bookcase, sofa. The answer is always the same- "furniture". Big help!
  • Hebrew Text Translation

    By Marvin @Lexington
    Hebrew text to English of a known text produced nonsense. This App is an exciting idea, however, needs more development .
  • Hit and miss - object recognition issues

    By Scheisty69
    The OCR text feature works fairly well. On the other hand, object recognition leaves much to be desired. In retrospect, considering this app has perhaps a 50% success rate due to the inadequate object recognition feature, I would NOT have purchased the app for the current $1.99 price. A $0.99 price-point would more accurately depict the TRUE value-to-functionality of this app. I'm hoping that a near-future update by the developers will resolve the existing problems.
  • Very cool!

    By Caseinchina
    Make sure you see the 'Text' vs. 'Object' at bottom. Once I saw that and downloaded the correct language, it worked great!
  • It knows nothing

    By Dogpile436
    Can not seem to recognize anything?
  • Can't identify

    By TFCDoug
    I've taken a number of pics and every one is labeled wrong.
  • In my opinion

    By bandelearo
    So far this app does quite well I'm sure that it does have its limitations I speak German but there were some words that I never learned things that I never would have thought that I would need to say in German however this app has taught me new ways to say things that I used to just know one word for and some things I just never new but I'm sure it will sooner or later not be able to translate but so far very impressive well worth the price.
  • Good and not so good

    By Paradise Pete
    It does a reasonably good job of translating text, even Thai writing, which not even the Google Translate app's OCR can do. The object translation, however, attempts to tell you what you're looking at but it's almost comical. A pepper grinder is described as "medicine". A water bottle on a table is described as a "room". A bag of peanuts is "no person". If you need translation of signs and text such as product packaging out in the world then this app can be helpful.
