APP Of The Week - WordLens

WordLens App Week



If you are in ministry, you perhaps travel - perhaps on mission trips and other ministry endeavors. I do travel a lot, and one of the apps that I have grown to love, appreciate and depend upon is WordLens. WordLens allows you to translate the written word through the use of your camera, in real time without an internet connection and it's FREE!

Listen to Lifehacker describe it:
WordLens is the brainchild of the folks at Quest Visual, recently acquired by Google, so expect to see some of its features rolled into Google Translate any time now. WordLens made waves back in 2010 because its iPhone and Android apps were some of the first to offer real-time, camera-based translations—where you just hold your device up to an unfamiliar language, and have it re-rendered in your native language right in front of your eyes. When it was new, it was the first time anyone had seen anything like it, and the apps still work remarkably well. They're not perfect of course, but they can be useful for reading street signs, menus, and other printed documents that you need to muddle through. As a result of being acquired by Google, WordLens is now free, and anyone can download the apps for Androidfor iOS, or even for Google Glass for free. It still only supports a few languages, but it's completely free, works well enough, and in a way works magic in front of your eyes.
Consider adding WordLens to your arsenal of apps.
