A way cool travel app!

A lot of apps for your I-Phone are pretty cool.  Angry Bird, Rosetta Stone tools, maps and the like.  But here comes an app that you can REALLY use while you travel to places where you're a little 'lost in translation.'  This is "Word Lens", a I-Phone app you can download for free from the app store.  In a nutshell this app translates printed words from one language to another instantly without any Internet connection using your I-Phone camera.    Just point the camera at a sign in Spanish and on your I-Phone screen you'll see that same very sign, but in English!     How cool is that?

Watch this clip to see Word Lens in action...

Word Lens Pros

  • The actual app is FREE and includes demos
  • Each translation is $4.99, not bad
  • Works even if you can't get internet

Word Lens Cons

  • It only works on I-Phone 4.0 and up
  • At the moment they only have Spanish
  • It only works on printed words, nothing handwritten

Of course you can always just snag a I-Phone below for $710 from Amazon.  It's the big boy at 16 gigs which should hold plenty of vacation photos, apps and even movies.
