  • Doesn’t work for Arabic

    By Scout720
    I’ve only tried translating with Arabic. Even with the English writing next to it and knowing the real meaning, the app translated something else.
  • You can’t cancel subscription!

    By mark2399
    When you first log in and try the three day free trial, they say you can cancel it in the settings. You can’t. I emailed support and am waiting for a reply. That is total BS. Don’t use this unless you want to be lied to.
  • Miserable random words

    By LisaRade
    Translation from Arabic to English was just random nonsense. Canceling now!
  • Useless app

    By ;:/3578$?;::$!?;5)?,./2???
    It’s useless app I don’t think anyone would need it and it’s too expensive as well 🖕
  • you have to pay

    By I love the airport
    it was a great translator until they didn’t let me use it and tried to make me pay for premium.
  • Useless, don't bother

    By mariiakokotova
    Not worth the money. Only works with black printed text on white background. Anything else results in Text Not Found. Totally useless in real life, there are much better apps in the store.

  • Bad At Some Languages

    By Kopi Anzetar
    This app works okay for common languages (Spanish, French, etc.) but is absolutely horrible for other languages. This includes Russian Dutch and Korean.

    Need to take very clear pictures for Japanese language i know that i took at least 12 pictures before it translated it
  • I travel all over the world

    By Queeniehill
    I travel all over the world… I am constantly looking for a translator app that fits best to countries and situations I’m in. Not every app does - not a big deal - I don’t expect that. I work with what is best for the situation I am in. I also alway test the app out before travel so there will be no surprises and delays when I am in country. I downloaded the free trial and within 10 minutes I am now deleting it and canceling my trial. I tried various languages from Hebrew to English, Russian to English, Spanish to English, French to Hebrew, etc. it did not pick up any text. Not. One. Text. I attempted it in various lighting situations and with both flat surfaces and curved (such as a bottle) - no text was found in any of my trials. This is the first time with the various apps I’ve tried regarding translation that has been such a failure right out of the box… As I said, it’s disappointing because the idea is amazing… But, I cannot recommend this app.

  • Charged after Cancelling

    By a015g
    Emailed the company and asked them to cancel my subscription yet I was still charged the monthly fee.
  • Not worth it

    By rebeccaa hough
    This app is completely disgusting. it does not show or help in anyway. If I could I would give this app zero stars out of five stars.
  • Don’t use

    By Kaliland
    They don’t let you cancel
  • Terrible

    By jeffwired
    No way to cancel! It’s a “gotcha” for 10 bucks a month. App does not work. Frustrating!!
  • Do not buy

    By dylan42069
    What ever the developers reply it’s damage control It forces you to buy a free trial. And it’s not a add if you’re the one that owned it
  • Terrible app

    By Mer-Pie
    Terrible app. Cannot translate anything form Chinese to English. Useless.
  • Not working

    By PugParty39
    I tried using the free trial but I can’t tell if I got it or not. It stops me from using the app to tell me to sign up so when I “start” the trial the same thing happens. I’m going on a trip and won’t be able to cancel it because I won’t have internet and I only wanted to use it once when it actually doesn’t work. It didn’t even recognize text on a button.

  • Mistranslation

    By Jenna Slater
    I tried translating an extra that came in an album I ordered, when I tried this app, the Chinese translation was incorrect and didn’t make sense. I hope you can try to fix my problem.
  • 聰明的App

    By 虎妞紫涵
  • Object recognition good; text recognition ok

    By lkkggbbcf
    Firstly, this app is pretty cool and exciting. It’s amazing that someone created such a useful app, and that such technology is becoming available to us. The critical part of this review is this- I tested this app out and found the object recognition to be pretty reliable. The text recognition was less reliable as it couldn’t always read my writing even though I printed it out clearly. Sometimes it was difficult getting the app to read text that surely seemed to be “in the window” but the app “didn’t seem to think so”. Anyway, overall, I think the app is pretty cool and can see it being useful in a pinch, even with these issues.
  • Trash

    By trashiest app evr
    I can’t use it now. You have to pay to use the app after a certain period of time. I hate apps that waste my time. This is one of those apps. Don’t waste yours either
  • One star rating is too generous

    By Sugar Allen
    Do not subscribe to try the “3 day” free trial. It must be cancelled 24 hours before the beginning of the 4th day, which is, in fact, only 2 days. Instructions to cancel are intentionally vague. One star rating is too generous.

  • Unhelpful and I can’t unsubscribe

    By jongoldsteinjg
    I’ve been using it a little bit and it doesn’t ever seem to translate the things I need. I got tricked into the free trial and now can’t unsubscribe. Note to developer: please help me unsubscribe.
  • Very Bad

    By bahmancs
    Just , Error

    By Concretefeet73
    Does not work. Unless you enjoy a 30.00$ application. This APP isn’t worth .99 seriously Apple. Got to have someone looking through apps to see if they’re worthy. This app is android worthy. What a racket. I’m at fault for forgetting to opt out but I’m a better judge of what is good for most. Seriously this is like having fast food burgers when you want prime rib.
  • Good

    By BellaCalwin
    It will be 5 stars if it can translate to Khmer

  • Technical Issues

    By Dolphin family
    I love the idea of this app and at first it worked out great the first few times. Then whenever I tried taking a photo for my translation a page popped up asking me if i wanted the premium version or if i wanted to buy a better version. I think this could be a great app but there are multiple technical difficulties that need to be fixed!
  • Not for me.

    By Cyrusparsi
    I use the trial version and I’m not going to purchase it. I tried both text and picture. Translating text completely failed. It is trying to translate word by word not translate to make a sentence correctly but very ridiculous. On top of that when it can’t translate a word ,uses the same word as in original text. Translating the picture is working during my test so far except some issues. If you take pictures of of frame with a picture in it, it translate the frame and not the picture in the frame. Anyway paying a monthly or yearly fee not worth it for me.
  • Doesn’t even work

    By Unknown Mr DJ
    I go to translate Spanish and it translates words wrong or it doesn’t even translate them. Sometimes when it highlights words it recognizes it completely ignores the word.
  • Never got it to work even once

    By Mr. Man90
    We downloaded this app while we were visiting the Czech Republic. We tried several times, holding it steady selecting small signs and large, and never got it to work even once. What a waste of a download.
  • Won’t let me use it

    By urbancool_alli
    After using it a few times it won’t let me use it! Every time I try to take a picture the premium ad pops up! It’s really frustrating as it doesn’t even tell me the definition after I click out of the pop up!!
  • Forced Primium

    By Kurtskiy
    Did 2 text translations, then 1 object translation. After that, every time I try to use the camera for translation it goes to the Premium screen, forcing the user to upgrade, with no visible way to say “no thanks”, thus the user cannot use your “free” app. If I’m missing the opt out somehow, please inform me how to do this, otherwise Shame on You - You can’t get much lower than this - your app should be banned.
