    Hi there,

    I've installed Word Lens on my iPhone a while ago and was simply amazed how it works. You point your camera to a sign, text, menu and it translates it instantly :) I never really used it because the language packs were too expensive. But Google brought the company and now ALL the language packs are free for a limited time. Go get it, it's great for traveling :) Free for Android and iOS!

    That's a superb app, well spotted.

    It works like black magic - I was waiting for it to show a translation and then realised the wording was changed in realtime - looked like the sign was actually in the new language.

    Burn the witches!

    Does g00gle FORCE you to sign up for g00gle+ in order to get the APP? Or, in order to use the APP?

    I would be surprised if they didn't.

    Anyhow, it sucks that this evil company bought this amazing APP.

    no, Google is not involved in the app yet. you don't need a Google+ account.

    you can download it without any strings attached - all language packages within the app are still free of charge! :)

    Black magic and witches?

    How old are you? You sound very young.

    Everyone knows that the Salem Witch Trials never even happened.

    It only has 6 languages correct? Is it possible to get anymore because my language is not listed.
