We have a nice new beta app for all of you to try today. Elena over at Shape Services, makers of IM+Talk and IM+Messenger, has let us know about their new beta app Photo Translator. This app is great for anyone that travels or isn’t necessarily fluent in all the languages they may encounter on a day to day basis.
The principle of the app is that it uses the native camera to take a photo of text and then translates that text into any of the pre-loaded language options. Now of course the photo that is taken needs to nice and clear otherwise you will get some words that are slightly off.
I have testing this app for a couple of hours now and it seems to be very solid. The UI is nice and clean and for the most part it does seem to be translating the text fairly accurately. Now this app isn’t perfect yet, hence still being in beta testing, but it is close in my eyes.
Shape Services and Nerdberry.net would like all of you to test this new app and provide feedback on your experiences. The more detailed the feedback the sooner this app will become public, and maybe we will reward some of our readers with keycodes for the full version!
So please download Photo Translator for Blackberry v0.9 and let us know what you think by dropping a comment or by heading over to the Nerdberry Forums.
