  • Always Translate This

    by johnnieglide

    I purchased Always Translate This from Creative Design. This app does not look anything like it is advertised. You have a from column and a to column with the languages, Both are very short in languages . The from column is very short and for me all of the languages that I would like to have translated in the to column. You would think they would have all the languages that are advertised on in the app in one column so you could choose from one language to the other. I have tried my best to get a hold of Creative Designs, I've called the number only static, tried to email them no answer their. If there's anybody out there that could help me with this app please let me know!


    by MarloPogi

    Have tried to use it a couple of times. It does take the picture but when it tries to translate it, the app crashes and disappears! I tried it both on my Ipad and Iphone. Did the same on both!

  • Constantly crashes!

    by globetrekkingmom

    This app worked for me one time. It has crashed every time since. I had high hopes for it and when it worked it was great, but it is utterly useless. Don't waste your money unless you like paying for disappointment.

  • Don't waste your money

    by Bold donkey

    It doesn't work. Always crashes at the OCR. I suspect the developer abandoned the program, that could explain why the server for OCR is always down and causes the program to crash. Don't waste your $.99 + tax. Apple should have done something to protect app buyers too!

  • Always translate this

    by Boomerbear3

    Never got this to work on a new i-pad - support was nonexistant -

  • What's Spanish for a waste of .99 cents?

    by PineappleOctopus

    App crashed every time it tried to OCR the photos it took. Nothing was translated live on the fly either (as inferred in the description and incorrectly stated by some user reviews), could only take a photo, or load one from album, then crashes. Tested using German, Spanish and English, on both a 4S and an Ipad2. The screenshots above are nothing like what I saw in the actual app before it crashed. Not sure if it needs to be updated, or maybe whatever server does the translating is down or what.

  • Fake!

    by @turbo@

    Screenshots in description are not as in app!!!

  • Doesn't really work very well

    by sasuke52

    This app needs a bit of fixing... It couldn't translate any of the notes in Spanish I wrote. Needs an update with a fix

  • Not what I needed

    by NCDragon74

    I needed this to translate from Japanese to English but the app only goes from English to Japanese. They state that you can try the installed version as if there is some way to get other options. But there are no options within the app to purchase or download anything else. Thumbs down.

  • don't buy it !

    by paloschi_a

    This app supports far fewer languages for reading the text than it does for the resulting translation. If I knew that I would not have purchased it--be cautious that the language you want to read is supported. For instance, it won't read Hindi but will present the results in Hindi.

  • Waste money!!!

    by binzoo2xx

    I don't like this app. It is quiet complex.You should try it before buy!!!

  • Use it now!!!

    by jumba2012

    I really was fascinated by this cavalier. It helps us translate and understand different languages.!!

  • It's alright

    by Little Kawaii

    It's a good translator to get the general gist of a piece of text, but I wouldn't use it for serious translations.

  • Funny-)))

    by MinJung89

    It has full features.Very good for user. I like this app and I hope you liked it....@

  • Fun app^^^

    by Lybangbang

    It has some benefits for us. Please buy it for your iPhone.It will help you when trouble...!!!

  • Awesome, only one complaint!

    by Fisshe

    Overall this is a great app that does exactly what it says. I can use it for my Spanish II homework, by taking a picture of the sheet and translating it into English, and I can use it to correspond with my (Chinese) father by screen-shot'ing his emails. The only bad thing is the interface/GUI/aesthetics aren't as good as I presumes they'd be, based off the app logo it looks very lively, and cool, but the actual app is quite plain. Still a good app!

  • Somewhat Disappointing

    by Pfsll

    This app works, but does not translate FROM all of the languages it says it supports. If you're going to Europe you should be fine, but if, for example, you are traveling to East Asia, forget it. Does not translate from Chinese, Japanese or Korean. Maybe this shortcoming will be addressed in future updates...

  • Should buy-)))

    by lexus2012

    I'm really happy about all the features that this application would provide. It can translate anything that you want...!!!

  • Perfect choice!!!

    by haohao601

  • Best translator ever

    by RJBisuna

    Excellent app, a must have

  • Bad app

    by Gibson778

    The application works fine but must have internet. Meaning of words and incorrect grammar.

  • Nice

    by sunluqing

    The price of this app is low. It's very convenient to use. I also get the answer quickly.

  • not that good

    by OnealLuo

    first of all the description is kinda misleading. it doesn't do live translation. all it does is translate the selected phrase of a picture(can be freshly taken or already in your gallery). secondly the accuracy of the translation is a little off. there are a lot of free apps that do what this app does and better. so I don't really see the point of buying this app.

  • Amazing App

    by Caleb511

    This technology astonishes me. I can't believe that this app can translate signs this well.

  • Slick and effective

    by heathen3017

    Worth the download.

  • Really well made

    by Lone$tar01

    Overall good job with the application and it works wonderfully. In all I can say the mechanics are tuned right and all things said its a good app. Good job with this app.

  • Great
