    That’s an interesting idea.
    It should be useful to translate Chinese/Japanese words.

    I’ve bought this app 2 weeks ago, just before going to Shanghai for 1 week holiday. I have to say that it was really useful.
    At first it didn’t worked really well, but after a few tries, I understood that you have to get the picture in front and select only the text I wanted to translate. After that, it worked quite well.
    So yes I can say it is a useful app, not to translate a whole book, but at least to understand signs, what’s your going to eat, etc.
    One thing I found which I would love the developers to change in the app is that you have to check the orientation of the camera before taking the picture or otherwise it will not have the good orientation and there is no way to turn it!
    I’ve already feedback this to them, hope they will read it and take my advice into account :)
