Word Lens App: Universal Language Translator-First Steps Taken

By Updated on

We have spoken to you about a few apps recently; these include Battlefield rising in the grossing rankings, the popularity of Infinity Blade and the handy app Quickoffice. Now we are bringing you something that extremely innovative, perhaps revolutionary, the Word Lens App.

When we saw the application it certainly impressed us, the app uses the camera on your phone to look at words and then it can change the words from one language to another. As it stands Word Lens only supports Spanish to English and vice versa.

The app is free to download however there is a charge for the languages that you wish to add. Each language pack will cost you $5. So if you wanted English to Spanish and Spanish to English you will pay $10 in total. You can read a full list of compatible devices by heading over to appshopper.com.

The app was developed by Quest Visual; we can show you a demonstration video provided from their website at the bottom of our article. We see this as a stepping stone to having a universal language translator; this could evolve from here with different language packs being added. Time will tell with this app but we at PR have high hopes. If you want to download the app, head over to iTunes by clicking here.

What do you think of the App? Are you as impressed as us? Let us know in the comments below.
