Photo Translator is a simple app that allows you to translate any word captured with your camera
Actually, Photo Translator allows users to translate captured words by two different ways: from gallery pictures or from the camera. First off, users have to choose the languages. This full version comes with more than 25 languages. Second, choose the way the word is going to be captured and wait a few second to get it translated.
Photo Translator is inspired by a good idea. However, the app needs to be enhanced in some regards. On the one hand, it takes too long to translate the word. On the other hand, sometimes it doesn't recognize the word. From my point of view, this two points are basic to make it really usable.
This doesn't mean that the app doesn't work at all: the app works pretty good but should be enhanced in this regard. I wish developer will focused on this issue since the idea behind the app is really good.
Please take a picture of a black text on a white background, otherwise it won't work.

Would not recognize any text I photographed.
Completely mistranslates. Doesn't even recognize the Japanese characters
So I bought it because it worked the first couple times and after that it hasn't worked since with the constant error of file not found. Buyer beware of the program not doing anything just wasted money.
I bought the app so I could translate instructions that I got with a desk, I recently purchased. Tried several times and the app couldn't even extract the contents of the instructions properly.
This app can't do Chinese.
I paid for it and it NEVER works
