    The app isn't perfect, but it's close. All you have to do is point your camera at Chinese characters and like waiving a magic wand, the pinion and translation pop up. Very helpful for figuring out menus, the buttons on washers and air conditioners, and airport signs!
  • Great app!!

    By Sumi f.
    I used Waygo at Chinese restaurants many times in the United States. It works great every time! I love how it shows images of the food as well, so I can get some ideas of what the food would be like. Love it!
  • Looking for such an app for years!

    I live in Chongqing China and use this app all the time in the local restaurants. I live by it. It has never failed me when reading a printed menu.
