One issue on dictionary is the time you take to enter into your dictionary app, this is even true for words that are not easily type in for example chinese words. So normally I will be discourage to search up dictionary to know the meaning of the word because of the effort that I will need to put in.
Multi-Language Supports, Instant Translation
Penpower Technology got me to review their Worlddictionary iPhone/iPad app. It is an instant translation app, so what this apps does is instantly translate any words that it can recognize via your iPhone/iPad camera. This will not only help you save effort in typing in the word to find out the meaning, it will also help you when you don’t even know how to enter in the word.
It supports multiple languages, like English, Chinese, Dutch, Korean, Japanese, Spanish and more. So I don’t have to switch to any other apps, almost like a one app fits all dictionary.
After using this app for some time, I found out the on screen recognition software is pretty accurate, I don’t much mistake in the app, and the translation is instant. The only issue I found out is that for some languages, it need data network to lookup for the translation. This might be only issue, as we will normally use translation apps when we are overseas traveling and might not have data connectivity at that point of time.
You can get Worldictionary in Apple App Store @ $7.99
