App Review:

★ User reviews from the Play Store: ★ 
"Looks like magic It is almost hard to believe what this does at first, but it works very well! The overlay with similar fonts and colors are impressive. " --Jeremy G

"Great to use with vocabulary acquistion in my classroom for ELL students. " --Ana Sanchez

"Brilliant I originally gave this 2 stars as it used to be very jumpy making it unusable, all the updates since have made this a brilliant app now, works brilliantly." --A Google User

"Dictionary, not translator Pretty impressive so long as you accept that it's a word by word translation, so you won't necessarily get a grammatically correct result..." --Will Hirsch

"Mind boggling! This is the most astonishing use of modern technology I've ever seen. This is some full-on Star Trek stuff. You WILL be amazed!" --Shane Bobane

★AndroidCentral Review★
All-in-all, Word Lens does reasonably well for isolated words like you might find on road signs or menus, but not particularly well for longer sentences. The fact that you have to pay for multiple languages is a bit of a stinging point, but it's easy to imagine the developer simply releasing multiple, separate apps for each language instead.

The good: - Original, futuristic idea - Fast
The bad: - Lengthy translations hard to interpret - Microtransactions required for multiple languages
Conclusion: For individual words, Word Lens performs admirably, but don't expect, clean and concise translations of longer phrases, let alone full paragraphs. It's really too bad that Word Lens doesn't currently offer quite the utility it advertises, but it's still a novel concept and makes significant strides towards creating an awesome future without language barriers. For casual, simple, speedy translations, Word Lens will likely be good enough, but it is far from a full replacement for Google Translate.

The best-case scenario for Word Lens is that it offers both local translations as well as cloud-based ones, that way you could get the rough gist of a phrase without having to worry about processing time or roaming fees, but still having the ability to refine results into properly-formed sentences in the right circumstances. As is, Word Lens is successful as a novelty and a decent translation tool for individual words (if not whole sentences).

Instantly translate printed words with your phone’s camera!
ONE LANGUAGE PACK included with app purchase. Additional languages extra. Available language pairs: English ⇆ Spanish, English ⇆ French, English ⇆ Italian, English ⇆ German, English ⇆ Portuguese

Word Lens gives you translation on the go:
- NO NETWORK required - results appear immediately on your video screen when you need it, anywhere in the world.
- Easy to use, like the regular camera
- Look up translations by typing them in, or clicking on a word.

+ English ⇆ Spanish

Notes for getting the best quality out of your translations:
- Best used on clearly printed text (e.g. signs, menus)
- DOES NOT recognize handwriting or stylized fonts
- It's not perfect, but you can get the general meaning!
- Keep text in focus by holding it at least one hand-length away and tap-to-focus if autofocus is struggling.
- Turn on the flashlight (if available on your device)
- Zoom in (if available on your device)

Some features are device dependent. Not all device cameras can zoom, nor do all devices have a flashlight.
