Charged my Bank account without my permission!!!!! 1/5
This is a fraud!!!!!!! I had a friend recommending it and we both got charged without any notice!
It was all free and easy to sign in-now I see that they have charged 10$ on my bank account-and making me have this Translate Pro- without even asking me-I could not even find their costumer service to ask them what’s going on!
This is called stealing!
Don’t bother sending your automatic response ! I will make sure Apple store knows you have a fraud app! Hope they have a penalty on it !
DO NOT DOWNLOAD- Inexcusable App Practices - auto enroll $9.99/month 1/5
By Lancelot 12^
Beware of this App, drill way down and there is information on monthly subscription charges. This is supposedly a “free app”, however due to their tricky documentation you can expect a monthly bill of $9.99 plus tax. Failing to put this information up front is inexcusable. We are also sending a formal complaint to Apple. Shame on the iTranslate people. Hopefully this review will save you from this insult.
I like it so far 4/5
So far, so good. Not sure what the limit is for translations on the free version, but I’m sure I’ll find out soon. People who wrote bad reviews must not pay attention. No app can force you to subscribe, it’s optional. If you sign up, that’s your own fault. If you pay attention, you will notice the x at the top right that allows you to close the pop up and proceed with the app without doing the free trial of pro.
Poor capabilities 1/5
It’s a shame, the user interface is very nicely designed, it would be great if the translations worked, but they do not.
I set the app to English and Spanish as the desired languages, and spoke “cómo está” and this was translated into English as “as is.” It’s hard to imagine a translation app that can’t figure out one of the most basic phrases in Spanish.
Similarly, I set the app to Greek and said, “Πως σε λένε,” which should be “what’s your name,” but instead was translated as “How to say.”
I don’t know what the problem is, but these translations are seriously broken.
It’s a cool concept but... 3/5
Translations for many of the languages (Like Korean, French, and Japanese) is very inaccurate.
I’m a linguistics student, and a polyglot, so I wanted to test this app, but it still has a long way to go.
Too slow 2/5
Auto enrolls you 1/5
It starts off by automatically enrolling you in the $9.99 pro mode and you have to manually go in and cancel it. No warning or anything. It seemed really shady so I uninstalled it and cancelled my subscription. Why would I pay for something when I have no idea if it works. And automatically enrolling me in the pro mode doesn’t help attract me as a customer.
Auto Enroll!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD 1/5
This is terrible and I would like a refund I deleted the app shortly after downloading it. Freaking bought a ringtone put my payment info in. Then ring Ding dong freaking this app charges me for a subscription that I never agreed to. Ohhhh it’s in your terms and conditions for the free trail blah blah blah that’s dirty bros you know what y’all are doing is wrong and it needs to stop. What comes around goes around. I will change this review the moment this company does the right thing. Which will be never. And spare me the we are sorry to hear that you’re unhappy but if you have an issue tuff luck and good luck getting your money back from apple cause we ain’t gonna pay you.
Please remove subscription from my account 1/5
Tried to use the app and it says I needed to pay for it so I use the trial and barely made it threw sign up before I just deleted the app but with my card info still there. The subscription cancellation didn’t go throu is what apple support says and I can no long use my App Store or update any apps please please cancel my subscription
By Anatomy Nerd
After reinstalling, it works relatively well on the watch. Still relatively slow compared to google translate on the phone for example, but this may be due to the computing power of the watch...?
It’s a great idea, but I have yet to see any words translated on the Apple Watch app. I get the following message every time.
“Something went wrong. Please try again”
The iPhone app works great though, as far as I can tell.
Ads have been added 3/5
I get that ads need to pay for things but I hate that they get added without letting people know.
It just seems dirty and deceitful.
Tell me you need to ruin the perfect experience you created with horrible ads for crappy games I don’t want and let me choose.
What do you have to HONESTLY lose?
And don’t think it isn’t noticed because you wait a few days after “upgrading” to serve the first ad. That just looks even scummier.
Bad bad! 1/5
Got me and my partner into trouble doesn’t translate like it should.
Does absolutely nothing 1/5
Speak into the watch, then watch it say “translating...” for minutes. Flipping the watch over doesn’t change anything. And that’s it. Great job folks.
By Elvis Park
I download this for trial but automatically paid few days later. What happened?
I didn’t renew. Money back please.
Doesn’t even work. 2/5
Just sat in translation mode for my series 3. Liked how flipping my wrist changed the screen text to read in the translated language. Earned yourself another star with that one...
Amazing 😉!!!!! 5/5
I can't speak spainish so when I went to panama 🇵🇦 I could not understand anything until I got the app. I was then able to understand the people around me!!!!!😁
Cancel. Can’t get past “Try It”. . 1/5
Turning phone upside down does nothing. Can’t get past the “Flip now” page. Apparently the app has no clue that I have done so. Yes my orientation lock is OFF. Goodbye app.
Just downloaded this in prep for a Mexico vacation. Translation isn’t even working. Great Bluetooth/WiFi connection to phone too. Yuck
Kills watch battery 1/5
Kills watch battery so fast. I have the 3 gen. Apple Watch and the battery lasts at least 2 full days without charging but once I downloaded this it killed my battery within 3 hours. ANNOYING
Needs some work 1/5
By Bible reader 808
Needs some work but does work really well, reason I gave it 1 star was because before it didn’t have ads. Now it does. Very dissapointed
add language 4/5
Thanks for adding the Farsi language🙏🏼🙏🏼
How do I switch both language outputs 2/5
By Not your bid ness
I have been trying for about an hour to get both language outputs to switch, currently in is on Spanish to French but I need English to French. If have tried for an hour to get it working right then I is not good app. This is the Apple Watch version I am talking about not the iPhone version.
CANNOT DELETE APP 1/5
Why am I unable to delete the app? I'm disappointed because I can't even use it anymore. The button which is supposed to allow you to open the app literally says "Waiting" or "com.apple.installation" I have tried everything to get rid of it and reinstall but nothing would work. I would love to know what's up with this app?
Stunningly easy to use and accurate. My friends love it too!
Helped gap a language barrier 5/5
So we had a new guy start at work from Puerto Rico, been in the US for 5 weeks and has started English classes. We are mechanics and having this app has helped him and I immensely! We can now communicate with ease when he needs a tool, a helping hand, or just even a question! Makes it nice and easy for general conversation as well!
Just not good enough 2/5
By Mazzy sartorius
I very rarely seem to get the translation I am looking for. I try again and again, it’s just not worth it to me.
This app does what it says it does!
Umm you should let us translate without wifi
Amazing App 4/5
This App is wonderful to use but only if you add Urdu it would be amazing as it is a widely spoken language which must be in your app.
Languages and accuracy 4/5
By B hdnifjchvc
I would like if the creators of this app would add other languages besides the most common ones. Also sometimes it gets words wrong on the output.
Pretty Good 4/5
Works just has a few troubles separating certain words such as two, and to. Or write and right.
Why the need to flip? 4/5
How does it improve the translation? I can’t seem to figure it out. The mic position seems too petty. I’d be dead if that’s the reason. Other than the need to flip it, everything’s good. There goes 1 star.
It is called converse yet you cannot 1/5
With the name converse you should be able to converse back and forth yet it will not translate from English to Spanish. I tried switching where I had Spanish and English and still didn’t work. I say Amiga and it just repeats amiga to me. Could have GREAT potential if fixed.
It’s amazing the people comments if they’re really! interesting and learn other languages or communicate with others; they need to study at least the language needed in a different social lifestyle Occasion, for this application;which still in the first stages.
Not very convenient 1/5
By Lee Craven
Most people when using translators understand ‘some’ words and like to say them to get the meaning, you have to spend the time swapping languages on iWatch instead of just being able to hit the ‘swap button’ like on google translate. Also the translations take too long, remember, with the iWatch, people raise their arms to get a translation, 95% of the time you just stand with your arm on an imaginary wall waiting for the app to translate ‘hello’ into Spanish.
Edit: Google has a very fast response time, as does Microsoft, as does iTranslate, I have a 350mbps ISP that works 99% of the time. Give your app a try yourself away from your development server and see for yourself.
I recently downloaded this onto my Apple Watch and even when I close the app, it says open on the watch face and will randomly choose to translate even when I am not using it. Is there a way to fix that? Love this app on the phone but with the watch it keeps listening and randomly translating. Help!
Doesn't translate English to Greek 2/5
Sometimes works. Mostly just hangs.
The app does a 360-degree flip for no good reason and then lags so I'm either reading upside down or else waiting..waiting..
2 stars for a great idea, nice UI. However, still way too buggy -needs a lot of finessing.
By Mosi irani
So why is not Persian language?
pls sup persian language .tnx
Expensive Garbage 1/5
The complication appears in the list of complications, but if you try to apply it to your watch face, you can’t because it’s not there.
Translation to Mandarin is quick and accurate but... 1/5
By Deal friend
The app is useless for conversation. If there is a short pause, the last translation is frozen and there is no obvious way to clear it or start another. You must close the app, reopen, flip it around, place your finger and speak another sentence. Another issue is that sometimes, the mandarin is merely re-translated to mandarin rather than to English. Of course the two languages remain selected. I even upgraded but the results are unchanged.
By Syriano aleppo
Looks clean and clear cut. I have questions though 4/5
Do I have to pay if I just downloaded it off the store (not referring to the upgraded version). I assume the free trial is for the upgraded version and not just the app in general, right?
I’m a Spanish teacher and this helps me and my students quite a bit.
This software app is amazing 5/5
By Jack Craciun III
This software app is absolutely amazing
Not bad 4/5
Can you put Albanian and make it so that I can see what I asked to translate as well as the translated part. Other than that it’s good 👍🏼
Great on iPhone, but unusable on Watch 3/5
I’ve gotten impressive results with the iPhone app, but the Watch app is nigh-unresponsive on my Series 3.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Watch app did not work at all. It makes you look stupid in public.
Simply Fantastic 5/5
I use this app to practice my pronunciation, it's been a big help.
