Bad on the service end 2/5
Seems to me the developers would rather blame everything else except their app. As if everybody on here doesn’t know how to use an iPhone. 🙄
Don’t believe me? Go look at the responses on the “not so good” reviews.
Truth speaks. Very helpful in this world today
How do I stop the monthly bill? 1/5
By richard stop bill
I deleted the App from my phone and the bill keeps coming.
How do I stop it?
They got me 1/5
I was out of the country and wanted to quickly download an app. I download the app and get ready to use it. I see it says it wants a $9.99 subscription after a week trial and say oh well. I’m only here for a few days. Tried to get it to work but didn’t. I’m not sure what was wrong cancelled, unsubscribe and removed the app from my phone within 20min. I didn’t want to forget since I was on vacation. I get home and have a bill! Really!!! The app says I’m unsubscribed in my free trial of 20min (although allotted 1 week), but I’m charged for the service on the day I downloaded the app!
Yes, for this I’m asking for a refund!
Total garbage. Install it only to find out you only get a seven day trial then they charge you. That’s not an in app purchase.
Saves me every time since I work in sales!
I love the find the Language feature when your not sure of the language.
Very easy to use, and on more than one occasion the person i needed to use it for downloaded it right then and there at my job.
I use it at work cause I work the floor in retail and its a godsend. No more paging somebody that speaks Spanish.
I use this everyday and when I go to Europe next year it will be up and ready.
Beware-auto charges 1/5
Please stop auto charging my credit card! I never used this app!
Danke euch sehr 5/5

Die App helft mir an der mehrere Zeit dazu um deutsche zu reden 😍
Monthly charge for a translate app? 1/5
Really? A subscription plan for a translation app? Are you on drugs? I will use one of the many other apps that will do this.
I understand the Pro version is a subscription, that’s just a lame idea. Just charge a flat fee. I always buy the pro versions to support developers. But I won’t support a subscription based app like this.
Awesome app 5/5
I don’t have pro app but it’s great i use it many times. Free version has ads so don’t worry just use it. It’s fun.
Perfect for working on a hotel with lots of international guests.
Charged $9.99 renewal without approval! 1/5
I downloaded the app months ago and never used it. All the sudden I get charged $9.99 for renewal!! How can this happen. I already deleted the App. Stay away from this App!!!!!
Pretty Good, just avoid complex sentences 4/5
Story: my first language is English and I’m only conversational in Cantonese with probably an American accent. When I spoke in English, the Cantonese output was accurate. However when I spoke in Cantonese, the English output wasn’t always accurate. So 1) I think that revealed my accent is stronger than I knew, and 2) this app is very reliant on perfect tone, diction and pronunciation for something to be translated properly. Every time I said “water” in Cantonese (水), it would translate to “die” in English, very likely because the words “water” and “die” in Cantonese sound similar, if tone is not used properly. However my dad, a fluent Cantonese speaker, never had this issue.
A user may have to be specific and simple to convey the proper message. For example, saying “I want to order food to go” outputs a oddly formatted sentence in Cantonese. I fixed it by saying “I want to order takeout”, but even then sometimes the app heard me say “I want to order take out” which translated “take” and “out” as two different strings.
Overall though, I think I can use this app in causal exchanges like asking for directions or small talk, and am happy with it as It will help me with the Spanish workers I work with , or when I travel to China next summer. But it’s not something to rely on for more complex conversation . Still impressed though. Again make sure you pronounce everything clearly!
Great app 5/5
منتاز جدا لكن السعر فيه بعض المبالغه 4/5
By Lost apple
Does not auto enroll 5/5
Seriously people, they have to make money so when you first open the app, it asks you if you want a pro subscription. If you don't, just touch the little 'x' in the upper right. I'm planning on trying this with my Chinese neighbors.
In wanted charges 1/5
By bill touch
Do not download to just check out. I started getting a charge in my account. I never use auto subscriptions.
Simply brilliant!! 5/5
By Al on the coast
So simple & intuitive
Enjoy it! 5/5
By Rebeca chispita
This app is great,so clear and faster.love it!
This app is amazing it has helped me with my job, when I go to restaurants, and go out of state
Great app, minor fixes needed 4/5
This is an amazing app that is really helpful, but sometimes words that sound similar can be confused (ist and isst) so if there was a way that it could better use sentences that would make more sense in the context it would be very helpful. Otherwise this is the best translator app I have ever seen or used!
SO USEFUL 5/5
By Alex the gamer 713
It so useful when I wanna troll my friends in different languages
This is pretty awesome but they should have Latin to help me study for school
The love IS REAL 5/5
I can talk with my French girl in French , the love starts now 😂
This app is super cool I totally recommend it
Not accurate, and has many technical glitches 2/5
The translation is not accurate and sometimes not making the sense required for the other person to know what you say. Long sentences, more than 5 words, usually get stocked and the app replay a gibberish sentence, a combination of two languages.
I CAN’T IS THE PERFECT APP 5/5
This is the best app in the world
Buen app! 5/5
This app is great! I used thinking it wouldn’t work well, for my surprise when I speak Spanish it translates to English properly, and same happens when I speak English. I have an ascent when I speak English but this app understands well what I say and translates everything currently. Recommend it to my boss who’s a dermatologist.
Spanish coworkers 5/5
Totally freaked my coworkers out from what I was able to pick up off this app.
Expensive and unethical 1/5
No. It doesn’t matter how well it works, I’m simply not paying a monthly subscription for what Google Translate does for free. What is it with developers? How many people are going to pay monthly for something like this? Put an ad at the bottom and you’ll get users.
Further, the developer puts a sneaky splash screen upon first opening that can and has tricked people into paying for the pro version. Read the comments on the App Store. A totally unethical practice, don’t touch anything by this developer.
Response to Developer: The implementation of the upgrade is clearly designed to trick people into accidentally subscribing to PRO. It is the first thing that appears and is misleading. It requires just a touch to try and remove the screen to get duped into signing up with Face ID. You have many complaints in these comments about this. It is unethical and sneaky.
Great it works 5/5
I will keep 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ because it works in a fast efficient way without intrusive adverts. But I have a suggestion, you should make a “reverse” button like google translate to switch the languages, that would make it much more efficient.
Misleading subscription 1/5
The splash screen text says 4.99/month after the free trial, however, in reality the subscription length is for 2 months. There’s no way to just get a one month subscription for an upcoming trip I have. Very misleading. C’MON MAN!
Just got it 3/5
By The unlikely architect
The concept is wonderful. Dragon speech has come along way and I like the intuitive program.
I just got it, so I don’t know what it’s flaws are.
Ok app 3/5
It helps when you really need to be understated, but unfortunately it takes forever to translate what you want to say.
Amazing app that can be great for traveling 4/5
By Kevin kkkkkkk
I remember there is a kickstarter translate machine works very similar to this app. Both are great concept, this app is even free to use.
1. Well designed windows
2. Fast translating(with good internet)
3. Smart designed for conversation
1. Needs internet
2. Still need more languages
Love that it opens quickly, and is ready to translate. I work with a lot of international guests and the app saves time when trying to get the message across efficiently.
I would suggest a “reverse/switch” feature that can quickly swap the languages I’m conversing in so that my guests can just speak back to me without having to go through the process of switching the languages one at a time.
Overall, great app! Keep it up! 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Adding more languages 4/5
By adding more languages
Y’all need to add more languages like Persian
It says try for 7 days and then 4.99 a month but then charges you 9.99
Great app 5/5
It is really convenient
Great help!! 5/5
The app works great! It helps me in communicating with others so much in Chinese and Spanish. Getting the other person’s translation when they’re speaking back to me is a little tricky at first but the YouTube video helped. Great app guys!!
Great but idea but..... 2/5
By Pirate Rock Records
The app works well and I would gladly pay a $20 flat fee but if you are only going to use it a few times a month at most, the yearly subscription model is just too much.
You get 300 free translations a month but that can easily be used up in 1 decent conversation. It’s easier to use than google translate, but not $50 a year easier.
I would rate this app 4 stars but I feel that the company is being a little shady and intentionally trying to trick customers into auto enrolling to their subscription service. While you will not be charged if you do not click the free trial button, they present you with a large screen with a large orange button to click to initiate the trial and unless you are paying close attention you can EASILY subscribe to their $5 a month plan while thinking that you simply did the initial setup of the app. If this is intentional, shame on this company and if it was unintentional, they should reverse the UI to display the subscription button less prominently and the continue without subscribing button more prominently.
***In regards to the developer response***
The fact that you have an in app purchase is not what I am saying is shady. What I do not like is the fact that the first time you open the app, the very first screen you see is a screen asking you to start a free trial of your premium service with a BIG orange continue button to start the trial and a SMALL little grey x to close without subscribing. An elderly person, a child, or anyone that is not particularly savvy with the way subscriptions work can subscribe in 1 click and a Touch ID/ Face ID confirmation and really not have any idea that they just subscribed. Judging by the fact that most of your negative reviews mention this and the fact that you have not taken steps to change this leads me to believe that you are hoping that people will not pay attention and accidentally subscribe.
Good for vacation 5/5
