I had to subscribe to try 1/5
This app did not help me translate a health food supplement label. Now I can’t unsubscribe, and I can’t contact support until I “set up my email”, which I can’t seem to do thru the app either!
Doesn’t work well 1/5
Why do I have to pick the language I want to translate? I obviously don’t know what it is. I have a smartphone. If I knew what the language was I would just go into google and type it in google translate. I needed an app to translate by picture because I don’t know what the language is and so I can’t put it in google translate, and nor can I use this app, since I must pick the language first.
Fails to translate 1/5
Used on many words in a text and could not find anything
Amazing app !! 5/5
By Emilya johns

Terrible App 1/5
By The Disgusted One
Constant pop-ups and other bug related problems. I am deleting this app.
Free trial 2/5
By Dont reply
If you do not want to pay for a subscription I would recommend against this entirely you have only twenty four hours to end your free trial and they make it as hard as possible to end it.
Muy util 5/5
Wow es muy útil asta ahora me gusta... 5 estrellas
Can’t take a picture 1/5
Every time that I try to take a picture of the text I’m trying to translate an advertisement pops up asking me if I want to upgrade to premium. I need to translate the text for a school project, but I am unable to because of the add. If you are reading this and you are considering buying it, don’t the app is frustrating and a complete waist of time.
Nothing for free you have to for everything 1/5
By By Anjel 😝
I’m not paying money to get more whatever this is really ridiculous....
Total BS!!! 1/5
Does not work, but you know what works, their advertising and getting you to pay monthly some fees you don’t even have a clue of! Don’t download this app unless you want to be charged for some spam.
Rất hữu ích 5/5
Used app for just 2 two days and can’t cancel a trial and a subscription I don’t want or asked for. App is a premium app only worth if you have a subscription that is reasonable but a waste of money since there is better resources like google translate that’s free or quite a few others.
Zero Work 1/5
By Need update Crashing
I downloaded this app and excited to capture an Arabic document just a page to translate text content to English but no luck. The image stuck on the screen and you have to swipe it away to close the app and relaunched! Not nice. So as I am interested I tried another way how about saving the image first and upload in this app? So I did but the same nothing happens. A kind of annoying app that wastes your time.
It forces you to upgrade but developers failed to realize that an upgrade from users can only happen if he/she is satisfied with the app works.
Doesn’t work with text going up and down. And the instructions to cancel subscriptions are wrong. 4 hours later and I still haven’t figured out a way to cancel it. Guess they will just give me an auto mated response to visit their support page, which says the same thing. There is no settings to cancel subscriptions in ITunes for apps, and in the actual settings for iTunes and App Store there are only options for auto downloading things. I suggest not getting this app.
Finally figured it out. For those of you who need to cancel the subscription, then you should have gotten an email, from there you can click on “review your subscription.” It takes you to the normal APP STORE app. Yeah, give out false info and make you go through hoops just to get people’s money. Good job.
Didn’t work 3/5
Wanted to translate hand written characters on a silk sheet. Tried orienting the camera in both directions. Nice idea. Product has its limitations I guess.
Free is so full of ads you can’t operate 1/5
Ads pop-up so often, it becomes useless. Because of that, I refuse to upgrade. When an ad pops up every time you try to take a picture, that’s excessive and it does render the free version useless. Why bother to offer it? Other “free” apps off limited capabilities, not the inability to use any capability. For that reason, I refuse to pay to get the full app. I’ll look elsewhere.
Popup Spam 1/5
This has popups every few seconds. Seems more like spam than an actual functioning app. Removed it off my phone very quickly!
Update to Developer Response:
First I’d like to thank you for taking the time to respond. I understand having advertisements in a free app to pay for the development costs. That said the experience needs to be such that the user continues to use the app & ultimately purchases it. Many apps do this well. FotMob is an example of doing it well. I used it for a month & ultimately I paid for the ad free version. I never felt I had to for a good experience but I wanted to because the experience was so great. This is the same for my Twitter app. Your app is next to unusable because of intrusive popups ever few seconds. I’m not going to pay for the app after this bad experience.
The app won’t let you take a picture until you get premium.

Greate app I like it
Not as good as it “seems” 1/5
Doesn’t automatically detect language. Super annoying and didn’t accept any language I thought the text was (Chinese, Japanese, Korean)
It’s a fun app and useful 5/5
رائع الحقيقة 4/5
I didn’t know what language was on package. Apparently the app didn’t either. Then it only gave me less than a dozen try’s
Tamil language 4/5
Kindly add tamil language to your app, because most of our people need this app.
Won’t read Chinese 1/5
Tried multiple times with apple to read some Chinese script and it could not find it. Tried enough times the app wouldn’t let me try anymore without purchasing an account. Google translate worked much better.
It says i need to pay after a while why i need to do that SOO this app is TRASH AND ILL SPELL IT IF YOU APP MAKERS CANT SPELL S-P-E-L-L
Am i Dumb or what 1/5
Okay im so lost every-time i open the app i try to take a picture to translate but it keeps opening up this ad that says “download premium?!” Just let me read
To the dimwits at Apalon 1/5
By Lt. Dan's magic legs
The developer states that the functionality limitations in the app are compensated by the fact that it’s free. This is completely false. If you’re forced to pay a subscription, ITS NOT FREE. STOP
LYING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS!
Don’t download 1/5
By Typing trywr
Couldn’t translate any chinese
Even words i know.
yeah a free app but when you take a few pictures it says you HAVE TO pay
By Uncle Sam1637829193
Bad, if I want to pay I would’ve buy the full version, why do I need to pay for the free version. After 3 bad translations with limited boarder that cuts off all sides, I can not continue until I buy. There is no limited functionality, you cannot continue to use until you pay. I’ve read other reviews and saw people with same problem. Waste of hard drive and time. There are better product out there.
It doesn’t even translate 1/5
By app reviews for everyone
This app is a waste of time. Delete it

Agradecido por la app, es muy interesante.
Made my day easy
Add Urdu Language 5/5
I downloaded it because I needed Urdu translation. Why? I have a special need daughter who understands Urdu better. I need Urdu added so she can communicate better. And others can speak in english or Spanish and she could translate it in Urdu if she needs help. Please add Urdu. شکریہ
Khmer Translation? 3/5
I’ll give it a 5star after you guys get khmer translations
By Yes, I am a gamer.
Translates well, but the app is a little weird to use and you only get a handful of free uses.
Needs more “test” time 1/5
This might be a really good app, but the amount of time/translations that you get before you need to upgrade to continue is not sufficient to figure out how to use it correctly. Therefore, my “test translations” did not provide a good result and I can’t recommend this app.
I received a reply to the above review, which seemed to be a “canned” answer since it was the same, word for word, as replies to other reviewers. The reply begins with “The limitations in the app are compensated by the fact that it is free...”. And goes on to suggest that if I don’t like the limitations that I should choose a package (paid, of course) that does not have the limitations. Please! The fact that it is free does NOT compensate for the fact that you have to putz with it too much to make it work before you told to pay for it! You obviously did not read and understand my review, and threw a canned response to me. That is not the way to win customers or get better reviews.
Just.. no 1/5

Stupid app ! 1/5
Doesn't work !
I can’t get it to work! 1/5
By To Learn
Waiting to get support and not to be charged for an app I cannot use
Do not recommend 1/5
This app is good only if you want to spend money, after a few times using it, it won’t let me continue using it free with ads. It will just continuously tell you to buy the subscription.
