CamDictionary for iPhone: lost in translation? No more!
The Apple App Store certainly doesn’t lack language translation apps, but some are unique enough to highlight as a ripe pick for Fresh Fruit.
CamDictionary ($4.99) from IntSig Information packs several features into a single app.
Whether you’re an international traveler or language translator, CamDictionary can recognize and translate text that you place in front of your iPhone’s rear camera.
Using viewfinder in the app, steady the device and pause the viewfinder, so you can tap a character, word, phrase, or sentence.
CamDictionary can translate up to 16 languages including Korean, traditional Chinese, Dutch, German, and more. It also supports Bing and Google translations between 54 languages.
You can hear the pronunciation of 18 different languages, thanks to the text-to-speech feature.
In addition, CamDictionary saves recent history, making it possible to check offline the previous 500 entries.
