Don’t download they will automatically charge you 1/5
By Damien Wells
They charged me as soon as I downloaded it without hitting any buttons. Beware they trick you just look them up on google they have many negative comments about how they automatically charge you
By Tim, time waisted
App advertised did NOT indicate a price. Only way to avoid ongoing fee is to open and figure how to cancel. I have very little use for this and I’m STUCK until I can figure how to get rid of it. Not a happy camper!
By jerryboi 3000
I don’t know how to cancel payment. This is a great app and I do use it sometimes but right now I don’t want it but it keeps charging me.
Definitely not free. 1/5
This app is not friendly for people who are using the free version. Pop ups after a short while make it unusable. Do not give your money to developers who are in the business of lying.
Hard to use 2/5
Functionality is poor.
Cancellation Confusing 1/5
This may or may not be a good app. The cancellation after a free trial is very confusing. I have suspicion about an app or anyvproduct that makes it difficult to cancel.
Don’t download, they’ll let you translate 10 things or less and then ask you to pay $7 a month. Absolute waste of time and energy! I promise, don’t waste your time!
3 day trial. Cancelled day 2. Still charged. 1/5
Obviously not happy.
No sirve, useless app 1/5
By vojvodina 1984
Acabo de comprar esta app, y funciona de forma lenta, no es clara en las traducciones y se me queda pegada. Realmente una basura de app
Not great 2/5
It is just like any other app where they want you to pay money to have the full thing and when you talk it dont even say it in the other language and lets u only use it for a little bit🤦🏽♂️😭
Poor translation 1/5
Far from good
Voice not working! 1/5
It is not working correctly.
I speak but it only prints out what I’m saying rather than speaking.
I can’t figure out how to make it speak!
I realized after the fact that some languages are not included with the voice only text!
I was trying to communicate with my Vietnamese nail tech who does not speak English.
I would think Vietnamese would be common enough to include with the voice.
Hope you add it soon!
FRAUDULENT APP STOLE OVER $100 1/5
Like many other reviewers here, I just realized that this app has been charging me for over a year for a subscription that I never agreed to. I never even used this stupid app, I deleted it within minutes of installing once I realized it was trying to get me to sign up for an premium subscription.
Since then the app has been charging me $5.49 per month, which happens to be the exact same fee as my iTunes subscription so the billing notifications look identical. Apple refuses to refund me, looks like this unethical developer is refusing all the hundreds of other customers who have had the exact same experience as me.
I don’t expect I will receive any refund at this point, so I will just say SHAME ON YOU.
$100 is a huge amount of money for me, as it is for many people, and you have done nothing short of STEAL IT FROM OUT OF MY POCKET.
I am extremely disappointed that Apple seems to be okay with this kind of fraud being perpetrated through their platform.
Don't Download 1/5
Weak app! Keeps a unexpected recurring charge going! 0 stars
MIGHT be okay........... 1/5
No idea how to use it, or change languages. No instructions or help page.
Dirty business 1/5
I purchase the premium version when it was one-time purchase. Now they are charging a monthly fee for this app (which is not even as good as google translate) and I can’t restore my previous purchase. Cheap move!
My language wasn’t offered 1/5
Assyrian language not on app. Waste of money!!!
Not working 1/5
By VI Music Lover
The language I need is French. I need to upgrade to access this language however I’m unable too as it keeps telling me to try again later. Not sure if people are having the same issues
Works, but not free 3/5
By Give Me Some Stupid Nicknname
Seems to work the little bit that I was able to use it before having to pay for it
By Aldus M
Used to work well, now the developers seem to just want to steer users to only upgrade to pay options. Must be desperate; don’t download. People like this only want to harvest your data.
Never agreed to pay monthly 1/5
Found out thanks to Apple Card alerts that I was charged &
$6.99 via my Apple ID for the last 5 months for this garbage.
Working with credit card company to dispute charges.
Do not download 2/5
Okay, so I downloaded this app and it’s still sitting there for 5 hours . For example the app loaded all the way and then it turned gray and I can’t go on the app or delete it.
End this 1/5
By Smooth Harp for you
No where in settled to end the subscription but it tell you to do it in settling!
This app saved my life in Spanish class
Impossible to un enroll 1/5

I’m being charged monthly and can’t delete app
By Bobby brown 12
You guys need to make this free
I thought it was free! 1/5
I can't find a way to cancel !
No Good For Us 2/5
Speech translation does not work offline.
Robbed by this app and apple 1/5
Update: Apple is refunding, but it looks like they may be trying to only refund price of app and not tax. I’ll call them again if tax is not also refunded. I was trying to deal with another subscription when this app popped up unsolicited causing me to inadvertently purchase an annual subscription I did not want. I immediately hit the unsubscribe button to no avail. I contacted app developers and was redirected to apple. Apple denied refund . This unintended purchase wiped out balance of my birthday gift card plus charged $20. To my AE. I will dispute the $20. with AE and recover that. I won’t get my birthday gift card money back but that's okay. For my birthday next year I will be asking for the newest Galaxy. I’m done with Apple.
J am not paying for that is their any app without paying Ugh Gosh
This app is terrible, very dissatisfied 1/5
The app is terrible at recognizing when people are talking. It only picks up a few words in between sentences. I don’t even understand how it got a 4.5 star rating. I would give zero stars if I could and I very rarely rate apps. Be warned that you cannot use it free unless you buy a subscription through which if you want to cancel, you have to jump through a bunch of hoops with your phone’s setting. I cannot recommend you stay away enough. Very dissatisfied!
Not free as suggested! 2/5
By #16 Jack
This app may be helpful, but I was not interested in a paid app for translation. Only the first 3 days are free.
After you start a free trial and plan, the subscription will automatically renew without confirming with you first and you get charge. You don’t even get to choose if you want to get a monthly, 3 month or yearly subscription. They chose the one that will cost you the most. This is the first time that I’ve had this happen to me.
Update: As they say it’s normal. It is not normal. I downloaded many apps before and they always give you a warning that your trial is about to end or they let you know that you need to pay to continue the app.
Could be better 2/5
Ok, so I downloaded this app because I was in the nail salon getting my nails done and the lady messed up my nail twice and I complained. Usually I’m quiet but after waiting an hour and a half I was frustrated this was what I waited so long for. She began speaking Chinese (I’m assuming) so I remembered hearing about this app and downloaded it. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME. If you don’t know the language the person is speaking it’s of no use. Only for texts. I guess most people would like it but it was of no use to me. I already use google translate for translating texts so I was very disappointed. If they added an auto speech detector then that would be great and FIVE STARS. For now I’ll just give two because I’m still in my feelings. Lol.
Tried to cancel 2/5
I cancelled it the day before and they still said I purchased it. Trick used in the cancellation process!!
Disappointing update with Price gouging membership 1/5
I bought this app a while ago, couple years back paid $39 or something like that. At the time it was ok, I was in Germany and needed speech to speech translator & it came with offline speech to speech translation version with many other feature that was crucial to be able to speak choppy broken German through this app that some give puzzled looks but after quick read most can decipher its meaning, but it does not understand a lot of dialects or any slang. It is a one for one translator. That sometimes does not pick up on certain accents like my thick Texas accent. But it was sub par to begin with and now i am back in Germany and pull out my expensive translator to find out all the feature I once had are now being hustled at $6,99 A month after the high initial cost of buying this app that was sub par to begin with I don’t see any extra add on features, except what I used to already get when I purchased the app. What justifies the price gouging after i already paid a premium price at the initial purchase & now I don’t get what I already paid for. Might as well use google same translation it’s free and works about the same especially if you have to be online now
Speak & translate 2/5
It would not translate simple words. Always had to go into the free trial screen to open. I was not very happy with this app.
Why hello there 1/5
By perla soto
Worst app ever!!!! 3/5
I downloaded this app to translate and after a few translations it said to get premium and I don’t want premium
Why doesn’t definition include the gender? 5/5
This is a great app and I guess it’s mostly for conversation when travelling. However, with no gender indication, it’s difficult to use the correct adjectives.
Subscription only... 1/5
By Vinay vellore
Should have just stated that before, i would not have bothered to download. Have to subscribe even to try.
Never works when speaking 1/5
Works ok for typing words needed to be translated but the speaking option never works. It’s a waste of money :(
Never subscribed 1/5
Yet they charge me for the subscription. No easy way to find out how or why. No account created, etc
Deceptively subscribes you 1/5
By Chris the sleeper
I have no idea how I signed on for a monthly subscription. And I can’t figure out how to unsubscribe. I tried to download the free version to see how the app works. This is obviously a scam. Do NOT download this app.
Horrible translation 1/5
The translation is not accurate at all
Hard to rate. Impressive translation, too expensive for occasional use. 2/5
I’m just checking this out, very cool, even impressive, but I just wanted the three day trial. Bad news: I can’t find a way to stop the trial, and am not happy about spending 7 bucks for the subscription to activate so I can THEN cancel. This is not fair practice.
Can’t cancel 1/5
Speak & translate 1/5
By kathys opinion
Terrible, too hard to use, & you can’t load to Twitter without copying all the translated words over to Twitter.
In other words you must type 3 times; one English to Spanish, then write Spanish on a page then the 3rd time to Twitter to reply to a tweet. WAY too much time & effort.
I do not recommend at all!
That’s zero stars!
I’d love my money back but that’s not gonna happen.
Very sorry I didn’t pick another.
By Lee pickle
Tricked into a subscription and now I can’t figure out how to close my account. Customer service is impossible to get in touch with.
